Email Sender Preferences

Follow

You can set Halaxy to automatically use different email addresses depending on whether you are emailing an invoice, an appointment reminder, a booking confirmation, clinical notes, or just contacting a patient.

Once your preferences are set, automated emails will automatically use your preferred email addresses and manual "Send Email" fields will automatically pre-populate according to your preferences (the email sender can still be changed on an email-by-email basis).

Customising your email sender preferences is particularly useful if, for example, you want to send invoices from a generic address (such as a shared inbox for administration or accounting staff) but still retain a personalised email address for other purposes.

Note

If you have multiple practice groups, you can set a different contact email address for each practice group, as well as set different email sender preferences for each practice group.

Customising your email sender preferences at the group and individual level

If you have Personal Access, you can set only your own email sender preferences in the Personal > Profile page. In the Email Settings section, click Edit to make changes.

If you have Full Access, you can set the Group Default settings as well as both your own and other practitioners' email sender preferences in the Settings > General page. The Group Default settings are used for any practitioner who does not have individual preferences set up.

In the Email Settings section, click the Edit (pencil) icon to make changes. To add preferences for individual practitioners, click Add New.

Note

Only practitioners can have individual email sender preferences. Administrators will use the Group Default settings when sending emails.

Email categories

Each heading in the Email Sender Preferences pop-up represents a different email category, with individual settings you can customise for that category. Categories are as follows:

Email categories

Practitioner Default Email Sender

These settings will be used for any emails that are not invoices, reminders, clinical notes or booking confirmations (for example, one-off emails to patients, patient intake forms, or bulk emails sent using the Campaigns feature)

Invoice Emails

These settings will be used to email invoices

Reminder Emails

These settings will be used to email appointment reminders

Clinical Note Emails

These settings will be used to email clinical notes

Booking Confirmations

These settings will be used to email booking confirmations

Email settings

Within each email category, you can choose different settings that apply only to that category:

  • Type: In the drop-down menu, choose how emails are sent according to the following options:

    • Group Default: If you select this option at an individual practitioner level, emails for this category will be sent according to the setting for this category at the Group Default level. If you select this option at the Group Default level itself, emails will be sent from noreply@halaxy.com with the practitioner's contact email address used as the reply-to email address.

    • Send From Halaxy: Emails will be sent from noreply@halaxy.com. If no reply-to address is set, replies will go to the practitioner's default contact email address.

    • Practitioner Contact Email: Emails will be sent from the Contact Email set up in the practitioner's Personal > Profile page. If you have set a Sender Name in Personal > Profile, the sender name will be used.

    • Specified Email Address: Emails will be sent "from Halaxy on behalf of" a specific email address which you can enter. You cannot use a Yahoo address.

    • Practitioner Default: Emails will be sent according to the settings in the "Practitioner Default Email Sender" category (see above)

  • Reply-to email address: The address that replies to the email will go to. Type part of the email address and select the desired email address from the drop-down menu that appears, or click "Add as a new email address" to add a new email address and sender name. Only applicable if you selected the "Send From Halaxy" type.
