On the top menu bar, select Clients->Client List. Click the blue pencil for the desired client. You will now see the client information form. Click on the Advanced tab at the top of the Patient information form. In the Dates section, find the field labeled First symptoms. Enter the appropriate date of onset of condition for the patient.
