The Rooms facility allows a practice to order their calendar by rooms instead of by practitioner.
For example: if a practice has a surgery that is shared by multiple practitioners during the week, Dentist A on Monday to Wednesday and Dentist B on Thursday and Friday. Rather than having 2 books open, one for each practitioner, you can open one book for the room.
With the Calendar in ‘Rooms’ mode, you choose which rooms in the practice you want to view and book the patients into which room they will be seen in. You still need to select the Practitioner they are seeing when you book the appointment.
