There are multiple ways an entry on the standby list can be moved into a vacant appointment time.
The Standby List can remain open when moving to a patients' file. This is handy when calling the patient to see if they can fit into a vacant appointment time while wanting to see Treatment.

These steps will work from any vacant appointment slot. Ensure enough time is available to schedule the selected appointment, otherwise the duration of the appointment will reduce when moving
Click the navigation menu > Appointments > Right click on the vacant appointment slot
