Preferences - Abilities

The Abilities preference category allows you to view license information and the MacPractice abilities your office has purchased. 


Fetching the License

On the server, you can fetch your license from the Abilities Preferences.

To get to the Abilities Preferences, select "Preferences" from the MacPractice Menu:


Once you've opened the Preferences Window, select the Abilities category, then click the Fetch License button, as indicated in red in the screenshot below:


After clicking the Fetch License button, a message will appear to let you know the license was successfully fetched. You must click the Logout button in order for your changes to take effect. If you run into any issues in this process, don't hesitate to contact MacPractice Support.


When you fetch your license, your computer checks in with MacPractice's servers and gets the most up to date information for your serial number. You will need to fetch your license after purchasing a new ability, renewing your MacPractice license, changing your office address, or purchasing additional networking clients. You must have a working internet connection to fetch your license.

Services and Products

This button takes you to our Services and Products Ability that displays each feature enabled on your license, and can be filtered to display features that you do not have available on your license. There are also a variety of services available to explore in the sidebar.


If you haven't purchased the option, there will be a "Learn More" button present that you can click to learn more about that feature.


There will also be contact information available should you wish to speak to one of our Sales Representatives about purchasing a particular feature.
