What is the context?
Meddbase System Administrators/Superusers with access to the Admin section of the Start Page can view and modify a host of configuration options and settings controlling the behaviour and workflows in the application. Many of the above are configured/controlled via the Configuration section*.
This article is a part of a collection of articles on the Admin > Configuration section. Click here for an overview article.
Many of the settings described in this series have default values when a Meddbase chamber is first created and do not need changing.
* Access to the Admin section and the ability to add/change configuration and settings are determined by the User's Role Group membership and Security Policy permissions granted. Please refer to the below articles for more details.

Admin > Configuration > Appointments
To access the Configuration section, a permitted User should:-
1. From the Start Page navigate to Admin.
2. Click Configuration.
3. Click Appointments.
The below table explains each setting, field and/or tick box in detail:
|Episodes become read-only after a fixed time||This checkbox enables setting the duration after which it will not be possible anymore to make manual changes to the data on the clinical form.|
Time (after scheduled appointment arrival) to wait before episodes become read-only
|When the above setting is set to 'True'/Ticked you can provide a value in minutes, e.g. 10 min. After this time had elapsed, episodes become read-only|
|Make episodes on past appointments read-only once a new appointment arrives||This checkbox controls whether users can modify/edit data captured on clinical forms on past appointments. If set to 'True'/Ticked, and a new appointment's status is changed from 'Patient has not arrived yet' to 'Patient has arrived', all past episodes become read-only|
|Use SNOMED CT clinical coding on clinical forms||This checkbox controls whether when typing data into a field on a clinical form, the user receives a pop-up window with suggestions of words and phrases based on what they are typing. There are 2 types of suggestions the user may see:-
|Field history on clinical forms||
This checkbox controls whether the user can view the history of entries in a particular field on a clinical form.
When set to 'True'/Ticked, when navigating to a clinical form field in consultation, the user will see historical entries for that field on the right-hand side.
|Clone global fields on new episode for reporting||
This checkbox controls whether a value captured in a 'Global' field is carried over from episode to episode. For example, if the patient has Smoker value selected, it'll remain selected on future episodes until changed.
Please note! A field is configured as 'Global' during the Clinical Form creation process handled by MMS Client Support Engineers.
