“We've been using Power Diary for about 2.5 years now and will never use anything else. I was nervous about shifting our physiotherapy practice onto a new system, but the support team is great and talked me through whenever we had an issue we couldn't figure out. Our practice now runs a lot smoother and I'm sure it's helped us grow as we now have better systems in place (we now have 5 practitioners working with us).
We've even started using telehealth for some of our appointments now. I didn't think that our clients would like it but so far the feedback has been excellent.
If you're running a health practice, I can't recommend Power Diary highly enough.”
“Powerdiary is extremely user-friendly and efficient - it constantly blows me away! I have to say that the initial set-up process was labour-intensive. Also, because it's so customisable there are some parts that took some getting used to (e.g. session packs). However I received lots of support and answers to all my questions. I now LOVE using it. It saves me so much time each day and there are additional services I now provide which clients love, such as appointment reminders, emailed invoices and medicare claims. Things I'd love to see in future: easier access to phone support even if just for the initial month, and I'd love to see an android mobile app developed.”
“I am very disappointed with there service.... wish I could give them 0 stars. There is no contact number and for everything you have to email them.
I have been sending them emails to cancel my account for almost 20 days and there has been no response from them. What kind of customer support is that? A practice management software must have a support team who is proactive. This is a big reason that made us change to another software.
Even to cancel the account I have to keep sending emails to them with no response.”
“I was a bit unsure at first but I have to say Ella in customer support is amazing! She was so patient with me and took the time to show me how to do everything I needed to do! Now that I know how to use it properly I find it much easier than our previous system! Thanks 😊”
Emily - thanks so much for taking the time to review Power Diary and for giving us your valuable feedback. I can see merit in getting notified via a pop-up of some sort when a client arrives so that you are made aware of that arrival instantly.
I checked with the team and was told that this is the first time we have received this suggestion. This is why this feature is not currently in our development pipeline. However, we take all customer suggestions seriously as this helps decide what to prioritise when it comes to improving Power Diary.
As a side note, with the release of the 'Arrived' appointment status we also released a change 'behind the scenes' that enables live calendar updating.
This means that if the appointment status is updated on another device while you're viewing the calendar you will see this update live on your end - without the need to refresh your browser. This allows you to easily glance at your calendar from time to time to see whether or not a client has arrived for their appointment.
I hope this helps and if not, feel free to contact me via firstname.lastname@example.org

Fantastic to hear this Katie! Absolutely, considering the type of infrastructure we have in place; the skill levels and number of people involved in continually developing and improving Power Diary; and our fantastic support team - we'd say it is cheap :) Warmest regards, Eug - Community Champion
“It has been fabulous for us organising our Therapy Practice. I can access notes, upload files, send invoices or add payments on the go. The only complaint I have is that my diary is randomly on “private mode” currently.”
Tiffany, thanks so much for your 5-star review! It's music to our ears to hear how Power Diary is benefitting your practice. About your private mode issue, if this keeps happening please let us know by emailing email@example.com. Cheers, Eug - Community Champion
Much appreciated Nick! Feel free to drop us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to book a free online demo with one of the team to take you through other useful features. Have a great one, Eug
“The most useful element is the ability to log on from anywhere, and also to have multiple users logging into the one diary. It means I can stay up to date with any changes, and my reception staff can log in whether they are at the front desk, or just happen to be near of phone. I also like the easy backup, and the reporting options. It makes it easy to prepared information for my BAS.”
Thanks for taking the time to share this Vanessa! We love hearing about how you and your team are benefitting from using Power Diary. My favourite set of features is our smart reminders that send out reminders automatically; then update the status of these appointments; and then sends out notifications to the right staff member if and when required. Can you remember having to send out individual reminders manually??

“Power diary helps with our day to day scheduling of patient appointments. However we would like to see more reports more accurately reported ie distinguishing online bookings and bookings made with our receptionists, a report to show numbers would be terrific. The new clients report is unfortunately not very accurate. This report currently brings up old patients that haven't been in the last few years and places them on the report as new clients. This report also reports some clients as seen by a specific practitioner when in fact they have been seen by someone else. More accuracy on these reports would really be beneficial for our business in determining number reporting for our records.”
Hi Zach, Thanks for reviewing us. We recently added a function so that you can flag appointments that are made via your Client Portal. This also allows you to run reports on the number of Client Portal appointments booked etc. To do this go to Setup > Custom Lists and add a new Appointment Flag. Then go to Setup > Client Portal and set your 'Client Portal Appointment Flag'. That's it - the rest will happen automatically.
The issue you described with the client report seems very odd indeed! We haven't had reports of anything like this. If you could send through some details to our Support Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) we'd love to look into this for you. The information that would be most helpful is the name of the report you are using, the filter settings you're using (a screenshot would be great) and the details of any results that don't match what you're expecting.
Thanks again for the review! - Damien
