Create a Recurring Appointment

Recurring appointments can only be used for an appointment type of Meeting. They can be used for scheduling meetings and lunch breaks into a Practitioners diary. The Recurrance button is disabled for a Client Appointment. This is because this appointment type does not have the same functionality as a normal Client Appointment. Consultation Notes can not be attached to these appointments.
