  • Steps to Take When Changing Your Practice Management System

    Make sure your office continues running smoothly with Weave by checking that no information is lost and everything is still running as expected when you change management systems.

    Setup Recall Reminders

    If you change practice management systems with Weave, you must re-set up your Recall Reminders.

        1. Click the Hamburger_Menu.svg Menu in the upper right corner of the legacy desktop app
        2. Select Settings.svg Settings
        3. Click Automated_Reminders.svg Auto Reminders
        4. Select Recall Reminders
        5. Click through each Recal Auto-Message and verify that the recall types are still valid. A red outline for the recall Type Filter means there is an invalid recall type. Edit the filter and save it with the updated recall types you wish to include.

          Note: You may have recall types from your old practice management system with the same name as recall types in the new one. You will still need to set these Recall Reminders up again.

        6. Follow the steps to edit and save the reminder message
        7. Do this for each recall reminder you have set up with invalid recall types from the old management system

    You will not need to do this with any new recall reminders you set up as long as you continue with the current practice management system(s).

    Verify Your Data Source and Status Mapping

    Follow the WeaveHelp article Data Owner Verification to make sure your data source (new practice management system) is connecting properly.

    Are your customers having trouble processing their credit card payments when they click on the payment link in the Text to Pay request you sent them? Check the table below to see the meaning of the error and the corresponding solution to resolve that error.

    Error Name Error Message Meaning Solution

    Broken Payment Link

    Whoops! An error occurred. Please try again. If you continue to get this message, please request a new link. The link is incomplete or broken (missing part or all of the link’s dynamic invoice ID). This splitting can happen if the text message is over 160 characters and in various combinations of phone sender, carrier, and cellular device. You can access the full URL that you sent by logging into your Weave portal > Payments > Invoice History > Links. You can also open the URL from the message history in the Weave app, open the link in a browser window, and copy and paste that in a separate text message.
    Inactive Stripe "Payments" Status Aw Shucks! Sorry for the inconvenience. We know you want to pay your bill but there was an error. Please contact the sender so they can resolve it. The Stripe account being used has an Inactive Payments status which means credit card transactions cannot be processed until the account’s Payment status is Active. Follow the instructions listed here to ensure your Stripe account is fully activated for processing.
    Successfully Paid Payment Link Hmmmm... A payment has already been made using this link. To make another payment, please request a new link. A payment has been made using the link. Payment links can only be used once and then they are deactivated. Because the link has been deactivated, you will need to create a new payment request for your customer and send the new link to them.
    Expired Payment Link Shoot! Shoot! This link has expired. To make a payment, please request a new link. Payment links are active for 30 days after creation. After 30 days links expire and are unable to be used. Because the link has expired, you will need to create a new payment request for your customer and send the new link to them.
