Appointment, Unavailable Time, and System Colors

In Global System Settings (which you'll find under the "System Configuration" section of the Welcome menu), you can define a variety of system-wide settings and controls. The sixth section in Global System Settings, titled "Appointment, Unavailable Time, and System Colors" and available by clicking "COLORS" in the "JUMP TO" links, lets you set the colors used in WCONLINE to represent different blocks of time and different types of appointments, as well as the colors used on the login page.  As with all control panels, be sure to hover over the blue question marks within the control panel in order to find suggestions and more information about each configuration option.

Global System Settings Color Panel
Appointment, Unavailable Time, and System Colors

The two color bars beneath each appointment type represent the color of that type of appointment as displayed on the schedule.  The first bar is the color that is displayed initially.  The second bar is the color that the appointment changes to if you hover your cursor or mouse over a given appointment (otherwise known as the "hover color").  The only exception to this is the LOGIN GRADIENT.  For that option, the first color is the color used at the top left of the login page and the second color is the color used on the bottom right of the login page.

Color Picker ToolTo change a color, click on the color bar and select a new color.  For more options and control over the color used, click on "SHOW COLORS" to open the larger color selection tool. Keep in mind that WCONLINE will display a key to the colors at the top of the schedule.  You can view this key by hovering over the word "HELP" located near the Welcome menu.  Finally, if you would like to return your colors to the default color scheme for the program, choose the "reset all colors to the system default" option in the section's introductory text.


UNAVAILABLE TIME: This is the color used to show unavailable time, or "blackouts," on your schedule.  


"MY" APPOINTMENTS: This is the color used to show appointments for which the person logged in is the client.  In other words, if you make an appointment with your name as the "client," you'll see the appointment in this color.   


OTHER APPOINTMENTS: This is the color used to show appointments for which the person logged in is the client.  In other words, you'll see all appointments in this color unless the appointment lists you as the "client."  


PAST APPOINTMENTS: This is the color that "other appointments" will turn once the day has passed.  


ONLINE APPOINTMENTS: Shown to administrators only, this is the color used to show appointments that are being conducted synchronously and online (as selected by the client when making the appointment and based on the IN-PERSON & ONLINE AVAILABILITY setting of a given staff or resource in Staff and Resource Management.


ETUTORING APPOINTMENTS: Shown to administrators only, this is the color used to show appointments that are being conducted asynchronously and online (as selected by the client when making the appointment and based on the IN-PERSON & ONLINE AVAILABILITY setting of a given staff or resource in Staff and Resource Management.


CHECKED-IN: Shown to administrators only, this is the color used to show appointments for which the client has checked-in (as set up in Module Setup: Time Clock).  


PLACEHOLDERS: Shown to administrators only, this is the color used to show appointments that have been marked as "placeholders" by checking the "placeholder" checkbox at the bottom of the appointment form.


WALK-INS: Shown to administrators only, this is the color used to show appointments that have been marked as "walk-ins" by checking the "walk-in" checkbox at the bottom of the appointment form.


LOGIN GRADIANT: These are the colors used to create the gradient background on the login page for your site.  The first color is the color in the top left and the second color is the color in the bottom right.  


PLACEHOLDER COLOR OVERRIDE? By default, the "my appointment" and "appointment type" colors override all other colors. In other words, if an appointment shows you as a client, that appointment will appear in the "my appointment" color even if it's also an online appointment or a placeholder. If your staff often make placeholders in their own names (or listing themselves as the client), then consider checking this box so that placeholders will always appear in the placeholder color regardless of the client or other appointment options.
