You heard it correctly—preferred first names are here!
If any patient prefers to go by something other than their legal first name, you can now add this to their details, and it’ll show up on their appointments!
We’re thrilled to release this and think it’ll be super handy for everyone!
Note that if you want to address communications to your patients and use their preferred names, you’ll want to edit your templates to include the “preferred name” placeholders (either the “Patient.PreferredFullName” or “Patient.PreferredFirstName” one).
If a patient does not have a preferred first name, these placeholders will fall back to their real first name.
As always, if there are any questions, let us know!
