What do each of the appointment colors mean?

This article will tell you why client appointments automatically change colour on your Phorest calendar screen.

Appointments on your Phorest calendar will automatically turn specific colors to indicate their status. These are designed to keep you and your staff informed and to allow you to easily identify an appointment's status with a simple glance at the appointment screen.

The default color of an appointment when it is booked is decided by the settings for each Service Category. This article discusses when appointments automatically change color on your calendar.

An appointment will turn Orange if the appointment has not been checked in and its start time has already begun. 


An appointment will turn Yellow if the appointment has been checked in on the system.


An appointment will turn Green if the appointment has been paid through on the system.


An appointment will turn Grey if the appointment's end time has elapsed and the appointment has not been checked in or paid through.


An appointment will turn Olive Green when a deposit is paid towards the appointment. To learn more about adding deposits towards appointments, click here.
