      As you can now set up regular breaks and block times with “Split Shifts” under Staff Working Hours – we’re making this as complete :)

    • Online Booking:Group Appointments

      Often times, our customers do not come alone. At the very least would like the customer to be able to specify how many people will be coming to better plan our resources.

        Hi there!

        In this case you need to set up 3 different resources: Massage Bed 1, Massage Bed 2, Massage Bed 3.  All should be assigned to all relevant services, and once all 3 are booked up, it will not be possible to book another service at the same time which requires a massage bed.

      • Online Booking for selected services only.

        We would like to see an option to make only certain services available for online booking.

          You can do this under "Setup">Services">"Click on the service then "Distribution’ and you can untick “Enabled Online Bookings” then save changes :)

        • Calendar: UI Calendar Contrast: White and Grey

          As a software that stays open all day on a computer screen and the user stands many hours witht the eyes in the screen, an advanced UI solution used by many already is to make the design contrast in terma of colours and on black. (See heavy-duty software like reservations, 3D Max, Archicad, Photoshop Suite, etc. And many more from all industries - power user software)
          - easyer for eye fatigue!
          - uses less energy from the screen
          - improves the screen's durability

            We’ve been listening! :)

            Not only have we removed the “non working hours” from the beginning of the day to reduce the amount of scrolling taking place, but we’ve also increased the contrast of the calendar to help differentiate between working and non working hours.

            Hopefully this will be a little easier on the eyes :)

                  You can already change the “Payment” amount on the last page of check out for part payments.

                  If you pay a fraction of the what’s due, it’ll remain as part part and always show the remaining balance against the client’s name.

                  Hope this helps!

                • POS: Modify / Add Services at Checkout

                  Sometimes we book for one service then end up doing something different. It would be handy to be able to make that change at the checkout screen rather than editing the whole appointment and then checking out.

                    Boom! Done!

                    We’ve created a brand new Appointment booking window, New Check out flow and more customisable Invoices.

                    These features add loads more functionality, including:
                    - New Designs
                    - Increased optimisation for mobiles & tablets
                    - Edit, Add and Delete services during check out
                    - Appointment activity log per appointment
                    - Visible Appointment History
                    - Visible Product Purchase History
                    - Express Checkout
                    - Easily updatable Booking Notes
                    - “Go Back” option during checkout
                    - Optional additional text to Invoices
                    – Invoice number sequencing per location

                    Invoices and payments are now based on the actual day the invoice is raised and the actual day the payment is applied. This is because we are preparing to process REAL payments so the invoices and payments need to be officially dated to when they happen.

                    Enjoy!

                    • 7 & 8 week repeat appointment option?

                      I can see you have lots of repeat booking options, but i need to book some appointments at 8 weeks, rather than 2 months as 2 months doesn't fall on the same day and time in exactly 8 weeks.....unless im missing something?

                              Hi Guys,

                              You can go to "Sales"> Appointments" change the filter data range to the year and then click Excel to export.

                              From Excel you can filter all of your clients appointments and then save to PDF for print :)

                              Hope this helps!

                                Hey Guys,

                                We already have the “Rebook” button which is visible on the last page of checkout.

                                This way you can essentially copy and paste the appointment to another future date :)

                              • Client online booking form

                                When clients book online- they should not have to enter in their info every time? The system I hope remembers them like a log in or something? But name phone email every time will get annoying? Thanks

                                  Hi Jordan,

                                  We’ve already set this up so that it remember’s client’s details but if they’ve disabled / blooked “Cookies” then you’ll need to add each time.

                                • Calculate tips at checkout

                                  I'm a sole trader and adding a tip is a bit of a faff. I don't need to select my own name.
                                  Also need to allow to type in what they have paid and show remainder tip instead of working out how much tip has been included.
                                  i.e. if £67.50 and they pay £70 allow me to select £80 and show how much tip instead of me doing the maths.

                                  • Password protect certain menu options.

                                    We use our main calendar account in the salon which all stylists have access to and use to book appointments with. It would be useful to password protect certain parts of the main account. eg, reports, services and business settings.

                                      For restricted staff log-ins, go to “Setup” >"Business Settings ">"User Permissions" to see the different levels of restrictions.

                                      Then go to "Setup ">"Staff" and add your staff email addresses and change their user permission level to anything higher than “No Access”. They will then receive an email to create a password.

                                    • Permissions: Based on Locations

                                      Could you please add restriction to what a user with priviledge can see related with location. If i work in salon A, i should be able to see information related to that location(clients,rooster,calendar etc.) it is very hard for me tomgive acces tomthe whole database to someone that works in a differnt city... Please!!!!

                                      • Integrate a feature to allow some services to be hidden from public view when booking online.

                                        When building the services offered, add a feature to allow some services to be hidden so that they cannot be selected by the client within the online booking.

                                          You can hide services from being bookable online by going to the Service Details then “Distribution” where you can hide the service from being booked online :)

                                        • Provider's name in the product for inventory

                                          Accounting often needs the provider of a product to meet provider's invoice with the inventory. I begin to inform the provider's name in the description of the product but the export of stock does not involve the description so that the information is lost.
