These settings relate to the time and days shown on your calendar, as well as whether or not to display cancelled or non-attended appointments.

New patient icon: Show or hide an icon next to the names of patients who have never attended an appointment with your practice.
To protect patient privacy, whether or not the new patient icon is displayed may depend on the user's access level. For example, if a Personal Access practitioner cannot see that another practitioner at your practice has previously seen the patient, the icon will be displayed for the Personal Access user as though the patient is new. However, a Full Access user who can see appointments with the previous practitioner will not be shown the icon.
