To cancel a schedule you will have to:

  • Go to the Methadone section of the software and select the list schedules tab
  • Click the show all button and select one of the repeated schedules
  • To the top right of the listed schedule there is a Cancel Schedule button
  • After clicking the cancel schedule button a tick will appear in the cancelled section
  • Your schedule is now cancelled and you will be unable to dispense for this schedule.

My Methadone schedules don't disappear when the course is finished, why are they still there? and how do I delete them?

All schedules and reports have to be kept on record and preserved for two years, however there is a way of sorting the records so that your most recent ones are at the top of the list. Underneath the show all button there is a heading saying created with an arrow next to it. Click the created heading until the arrow points upwards. Now all your most recent schedules are at the top of the list.
