Treatment "frequency" refers to how often a treatment is completed in Shelterluv. With each frequency, there is a default time that the treatment will be created and will display in your Tasks list. You can change the default times for treatments through Configuration > Medical > Treatments and preventatives > Frequencies and times. For example, BID treatments will be set by default to occur at  8 AM and 4 PM. Changing the times for each frequency will change when treatments will appear in the Task interface.


Note: When making a selection from the frequency dropdown menu, you will need to type the following frequencies in manually as they are not visible in the dropdown menu: Q28D, Q30D, Q60D, Q90D, Q180D.
