    Hi Folks,

    We’re about to start beta testing a new reporting dashboard that contains peak business days and times information.

    As you have voted on this idea in Uservoice I’m contacting you to see if you would be interested in being a beta tester for this feature. Beta testing would give you early access to the dashboard where you can provide feedback directly to us to help make the feature ready for general release.

    At Your Service,
    Seán

  3. GDPR - Blank Automatic Lock Screen

    We have set our Desktop screen to automatically lock when the computer has not been used for 1 minute. This is to safe guard our clients data in compliance with GDPR, however behind the log in pad you can still see the booking screen including the clients names and telephone number. This should be a blank screen, like it is when you log out manually. I cannot trust myself or my staff to log out manually every time they leave the screen as we are a very busy salon with lots of clients to attend to at any one time.…

  4. Select multiple services in one go while booking to create the appointment faster

    be able to select multiple services to add on while booking clients. ex: highlight, root retouch and haircut in one click - not starting from scratch every time you need to add on a service

  5. Staff Year On Year Report

    I think it would be really beneficial if we could have a report that showed our stylists year on year performance ( like the financial year on year ) . I am currently organising staff appraisals and I'm inputting this data into a spreadsheet and converting to a graph to show their progress. It would save a lot of time.

  7. Weekly totals report broken down into each day of the week

    It would be really beneficial to us to have a single report where you can select the date range and it will tell you the daily totals of that date range.

    We are based in a shopping centre and they require our daily totals every week. Having to do 7 reports for this is an inconvenience.

  9. Option to not add refunds/returned products to stock count

    Currently when a client tries out a product and decides to return it, after the refund process the system automatically adds the product back to the stock count. We cannot sell used products, so this is highly inconvenient to manually change our stock numbers every time a product is returned. Adding an option to turn on/off the automatic addition of refunded products to the system like other competing salon softwares.

  10. Staff - Allocate Therapists To Rooms

    Allow Rooms to be allocated to certain staff members. This will keep the client experience consistent and allow us to control where staff are stationed during their day.

  11. Cancel & Create Appointments Directly From Client Card

    Sometimes a client may need to cancel all future appointments would be much easier to also to be able to cancel in service history have an x to cancel rather than have to find every appointment in diary

  12. Vouchers - For Treatments Instead Of Set Value

    Allow gift vouchers to also be sold for a specific treatment / product / course rather than just a set value.

    This helps when giving to charity events, and many clients prefer to gift a treatment instead of a value so the recipient doesn't know the worth.

  13. Reporting for payroll to calculate overtime

    In order to do the payroll correctly in USA we have to calculate the regular hours and overtime. Unfortunately Phorest software is able to. We need to calculate the regular and over time hours separately

  16. Dont allow a room to be double booked

    When booking in an appointment, if the rooms are FULL, don't allow an appointment to be booked in.
    It is too easy to override the 'warning'
    Also if an appointment gets moved dates but that room isn't available, allocate a different room (if available) don't just double book the original room.

  18. Treatcard Setup % Discount As Reward

    We think it would be a great idea to be able to set up the treatcard rewards so clients can uses % off their services...

    Rewarding clients with free products or services can cost the salon and staff as we still need to pay wages and staff..

    Eg: could be
    150 points = 10% off any service or products
    250 points = 15 % off any cut&colour
    350 points = 20% off any service
    500 points = 50% off any cut&colour

    If they have many points means they could use
    eg: 250 points for their 15% off the colour service…

  20. Roster - Change Roster / Schedule From Appointment Screen

    In the iOS app I can edit a staff roster from the appointment screen, just tap and hold the closed part and select the Edit Roster for ...
    But on the computer software we have to go all the way back to Manager Staff roster etc to be able to change it.
    The workflow would be so much better if I could access to change the Roster from the appointment screen the same way as in the iOS app.
