The most important screen in Halaxy is your calendar. From your calendar, you can set up appointments, add patients and add fees all in one step, and everything in Halaxy is integrated with your calendar.
You can navigate through your calendar by clicking the controls at the top.
The calendar is also the default homepage when you log in to Halaxy.
You can set Calendar Preferences by clicking the cogwheel icon in the top-right of the calendar screen:
You can quickly jump to your calendar by clicking the Halaxy logo in the top-left of any screen.
Halaxy's Visual Settings options let you customise the look of Halaxy to suit your preferences. You can adjust the font size, the visual theme and colours, and whether or not the sidebar is expanded by default.
You can access the Visual Settings page by clicking Personal > Visual Settings in the sidebar.
On the left-hand side of your Halaxy screen is the Halaxy sidebar. This can be minimised at any time by clicking the "hamburger" icon at the top of the sidebar. While minimised, you can hover over the menu at any time to expand it.
You can revert the sidebar back to a static position (i.e. it will stay expanded all the time) by clicking the "hamburger" button again.
The different options on the menu along the left-hand side of the page allow you to navigate to all the features that are available with Halaxy:
Finances: Manage your Fees List, expenses, and view a list of invoices. The Fees screen also contains tabs for managing your identifications (such as provider numbers for different funding bodies); your Referral Types;, any products that you may sell; and any package invoices you may wish to set up.
Contacts: The address book for your professional colleagues, such as referrers and other practitioners you may share patients with. The Contacts section also contains profiles for third-party organisations you may need to invoice. With these contacts, you can share clinical information via secure messaging.
Personal: Promote your Halaxy directory profile, set up the business details of practice locations. Your Locations page is also where you can enable online bookings. The Personal section also contains your Visual Settings options.

You can filter to display messages from up to seven days ago.

The notification icon lets you quickly view updates to your practice and Halaxy system messages. Notifications you may receive include:
Click the notifications icon to receive a summary of each notification. From the notification, you can also go to the page associated with the notification - in the example below, you can click the patient's name to see the information the patient has entered in the patient intake form, or you can click Dismiss to remove the notification from the list.
You can review all your notifications by clicking See all notifications.
Halaxy also allows you to configure which users in your group receive different notification types, as well as whether they receive notifications by SMS, email or within the Halaxy control bar. Please see Notification and Inbound Message Settings for more information.

If you are assigned to more than one practice group, you can access each group through this drop-down menu. Practice groups are considered separate entities in Halaxy and do not share information; by selecting your active practice group here, you can switch between your groups and see the related calendars, invoices and other information in Halaxy.
