After making all their selections, the student will see a confirmation page with the details of their appointment. They have the option to use the 'Comments' box to leave a note for the staff member about what they are hoping to discuss in the appointment. The student will also have two options for receiving a reminder about the appointment; they can opt in or out of receiving an email and/or text message about the appointment. Lastly, the student clicks 'Confirm Appointment'.
Students can also respond to Appointment Campaign requests through the link in their email, through Navigate Student, or through this Student Home (a yellow banner will appear at the top of their home, prompting them to respond to the campaign request). In this case, they will follow the same workflow detailed above except that the service and location will already be selected from the campaign settings. The student will select the staff member (if there are multiple choices in the campaign) and the time they want to meet.
The appointment the student scheduled will now appear in their list of upcoming appointments and on their calendar, both discussed in Upcoming Appointments Guide.
