Connecting the Finger-Ink app to your Cliniko account will automatically create a Finger-Ink account for you and start your 7-day free trial.
The way to connect to Cliniko is by using an API key from Cliniko.
Important: Use an API key for the practitioner you'd like to be the author of your treatment notes (if you're using Treatment Note Templates for custom forms)
The API key lets the app communicate securely with your Cliniko account to show a list of your appointments in the app and update your patient records with the information they enter into the Finger-Ink app.
Watch the video above to see how to generate one and use it in the app, or read the how-to guide from Cliniko (which only shows you how to generate one, but is mostly text and images rather than a video).
Pro tip: An API key is a long, difficult-to-read line of text. We suggest logging in to Cliniko on your iPad so you can copy and paste your API key in the next step.
Once you have the API key from Cliniko, just enter it into the prompt in the Finger-Ink app, tap the connect button and you're ready to go!
If you enter in your API key and receive an error, double check you've entered it in correctly and your internet connection is working smoothly. If you're still having issues, get in touch and we'll help you get things sorted 😊.
