Customizing Available Operatory Alerts

By using Operatory Alerts in the YAPI Dashboard, you can easily request help from your team when you need it.  YAPI already comes installed with a list of common Operatory Alert options you can use like "Assistance is needed," "Help me with probing," and "Op needs to be cleaned," but if you want, you can customize this list to best fit the needs of your practice.  To adjust which options you have on your list when sending an Operatory Alert, follow the instructions below.

Note: Changes to your available Operatory Alerts apply to all workstations.
