Is there a time limit you must adhere to between submitting/paying/printing the online application and booking the premium appointment?

I wanted to pay the IHS fee and pay/print the online application today so that I can see what premium appointments are available for next week while I wait for a couple of things to arrive in the post this week. Does that sound reasonable?
