  2. Marketing - Six week marketing calendar where we can plan campaigns to run automatically

    In the marketing area there would be a 6 week calendar where we could add in campaigns to be sent across the six weeks including SMS and Email for different types of campaigns, so we can set up our marketing once and not have to worry about it again till 6 weeks later.

  3. Vouchers - Ability to Sell Online

    It should be possible to purchase vouchers online using Phorest. It would be great to offer these in an area of the online booking widget and possibly in it's own Widget. Vouchers would be created in Phorest when they're sold and emailed out, the Salon could post out nice hard copies too! They could be sent as a gift to a recipient if someone is buying it for a friend.

  4. Reports - 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.

  5. Online Booking - Limit How Far In Advance Bookings Can Be Made

    Allow us to chose how many days/weeks/months in advance bookings can be made.

    At the moment the clients can book in anytime in advance and this makes it difficult to schedule holidays when they are requesting certain staff members.

  6. Reports - Comparison Reports For Weeks/Days

    A report that gave us the ability to see the performance of the days in the week in a comparative light would be extremely helpful. Having to run singular reports for each day takes added time. Financials at finger’s touch help us stay ahead of trends.

  7. Phorest Desktop - Patch Tests for Different Services & Reminders

    Have different patch tests for different services as different services/categories might require additional patch tests.

    Also reminders to action patch tests that are failed/pending to keep us on top of legal requirements

  8. Staff - View Their Performance

    I don't want staff to access ALL reports, therefore they cannot view their own performance. When using their own pin, they should be able to see how they are performing by day/week/month versus a target, or their commission. They should be able to look at this anytime. We can do this in our other salon (using shortcuts) and it really works! This would save me lots of time in reporting it back to them each week myself, and help when running incentives or competitions too.

  10. Online Booking - Indicate If Client Requested Staff Member Online

    Would love to know if a customer made an online booking on app or through site, if the booking was a request or not

  11. When moving colour & cut apps on clip board it moves cut into colourist rather then stylist

    If a Colour & Cut is attached to the clipboard to move an app it puts the cut directly into the original colourist but not back to original stylist.... so colourist is booked to then look after both...!?

    Hi Laura,

    This is an improvement we have planned for early this year. When pasting bookings onto another day, if the same two stylists are rostered the two bookings will paste to the correct column.

    Watch this space!

  12. Online Booking - Allow Named Guest Booking

    Allow for the client to add details of the other client(s) they are booking for online so we have all the details before they arrive in the salon.
