Months in the making, version 4 of the iPad app is right around the corner!
There are a few screenshots down the bottom of this article, but here's a quick list of all the changes on the way to your iPads very soon:
Appointments / forms
Group appointments are now fully supported in Finger-Ink!
Appointments are now colour-coded as per their colours in Cliniko, and can be filtered by practitioner (perfect for clinics with multiple locations).
We now show in the app if an appointment has previously had a form filled. This works even if that form was filled on another iPad, or using our web forms!
Finally for appointments: multiple forms can be filled out in one sitting, without having to enter the passcode between each one!
You can now specify _multiple_ form requirements for any particular appointment type. Better yet: you can opt to skip forms if they were filled out at all, or within a specified amount of time (e.g. in the last year).
Don't always have a patient's DOB? Kiosk mode can now be configured to fall back to checking in by mobile number!
One for those serving specific demographics of patients: the default date on the DOB wheel can be set however you like.
For the perfectionists: the "no appointment found" and "you're checked in" screens can be changed to say whatever you like.
Sometimes during check-in, intervention from staff would be required (if the name on the appointment was different to that entered by the patient on the form). This can now be turned off completely — so it's never required! We also have a new configuration setting to confirm the first letter of the first and/or last name to provide a little more security when you decide never to require intervention.
There's no longer a strange "inbetween" screen when transitioning from check-in to filling out a form — we just display the first question of the first form.
The same "Thanks" screen is now displayed both after checking in with a form, and without.
Dates in forms can now be 100 years in the future (as opposed to only 1 year).
