New Feature: Scheduling by Appointment Type

The new scheduling feature allows you to customize your office scheduling even more than before. You can create doctor schedules and appointment type schedules. For instance, if you only allow x-ray appointments to be on Tuesdays and Thursdays, that customization is now possible!
