Guide 📖

Start by heading over to the 'Messages' tab and click 'Create New Conversation'


This will bring you to the conversation creation page. Proceed to fill in various details such as date, time, fees, and participants


Note that you can add multiple participants and have a group conversation


Once all the details have been added, click 'Create Appointment. You will see a new conversation open up, click on it to start the conversation


Clicking on the '📎' icon will allow you to attach any files or forms for the participants in the chat to see


Important! Only providers can initiate secure messaging conversations with clients. Providers MUST message the client first to open and start the messaging appointment. 

When you have finished the session, please click the blue Complete button to close the messaging session. Once completed, clients will not be able to send additional messages until a new secure messaging session or appointment is created or scheduled by you.
