  1. Limit logins per terminal

    I don't like my stylists being able to login to my front desk computer but currently, I'm not aware of any way to limit who can log into a specific terminal. Giving, or taking away, permission from a single terminal would be great!

  4. Phorest to remember the client you are serving automatically

    It would be helpful if Phorest remembers who you are serving. For example if the check out and pay for treatments but forget to purchase a product. You have to look them up typing in their first name and surname! This would speed things up and be more slick. Helpful espically when they have a tricky/ hard to spell name! Thank you!

  5. Tanning Hardware Support

    Add T-Max support to Phorest to allow tanning salons to use Phorest. We also have a chain of tanning salons that we would love to bring to Phorest but not having the ability to control the T-Max means we cannot do it. Options for tanning salon software are very limited and nothing exists with the capability of Phorest in that space.

  6. Ability to add breaks and notes in roster screen rather than appointment screen

    Would really love the ability to add breaks and notes in roster screen rather than appointment screen, so can only be amended and seen by management, so we can calculate more accurately for our payroll. Notes in this area would be great for noting a absence reasons etc as a record. I would also love the option to show time off hours (hols/sick etc) in actual hours rather than average hours. Again this would enable our payroll to be more accurate.

  7. Display the date when clicking into a cash up

    When I try to balance the days and click into a particular date in the Cash Up screen, it would be very helpful to see the date I am looking at the information from, just to confirm I am looking at the right date. Thanks!

  8. When putting in a shift for Training add a description

  9. Set the capacity of the number of clients in salon at any one time

    With Covid it would be a nice idea if you could set the capacity of clients in the salon at any one time in the future and give a warning if you exceed capacity by taking more appointments than you can cater for

  10. Reporting - sales and discounts more clearly

    I would like a report which states what our gross sales are before discount, less discount amount and a net sales figure. Otherwise it means we are understating the real cost of our sales.

  11. Allow us to pull off reports using client's date of birth

    We currently have to ask Phorest Helpdesk to run the report and email to us. This would be most helpful when targeting for specific services.

  13. Commission brackets on product based on % of product sold vs $ of services performed

    We payout commission on retail sales based on the % of retail sales compared to service $. In other words if the products they've sold compared to the dollar amount of services performed is under 10% there's no commission paid, if it's 10% then they get 10% commission, if it's 20% they get 20% commission, etc. It helps reward relative performance.

  14. Extend auto logout for different staff members

    Important that front of house team have to log in regularly so that we can audit activity, however it is annoying if "manager" is performing tasks and doing other things at the same time to have to keep logging back in.

  16. Retail sales report per brand to include customer names

    When stock isn't correct to give everyone a report for just that supplier - they can see easily if someone is missing from the list, hasn't been rung in, paying next time etc

  17. Show in cashup all appointments that haven't been paid

    When a client hasn't paid for an appointment as the button pay hasn't been hit when cashing up it should be flagged I know the appointment stays yellow but there's no indication when cashing up in the expected and actual

  18. Create a report for clients on a waitlist during salon closure

    Since we are in California and salons are closed, it would be great to be able to pull a report of clients on the waitlist so we can reach out to them in the order they came in. Also since we can only view the waitlist from a desk top and not on mobile, it makes it hard to know who’s on the list. Thank you!

  19. Staff filter on appointment screen

    It would be sweet if you could filter out staff allowing you to look at 2 peoples schedule only, or everyone at a certain price point, or have more tabs at the top of the screen.

    Often we get a request for a certain price point so only looking at those staff's availability would be sweet.

    Or if we need to book 1 customer with two service providers.

    Or if we want to mare out two or more staff members for a meeting
