  2. Add products/services to the bill and save this until they are ready to pay

    Add products/services to the bill and save this until they are ready to pay. Having to add services and retail again every time you are done with a ticket (not checked out) - can we have the ability to save changes.

  6. Allow service durations of 0 minutes

    Allowing certain, quick add on services to be set at 0 minutes so that they show up as “booked” but don’t actually take up a time frame on the appointment book.
    Example: Sally is booked for a Haircut with Stacie. Front Desk Team upgrades Sally to a treatment that typically takes Stacie 5 minutes to apply. Stacie does not need a full service block on her appointment book for the treatment but needs to know that the FD upgraded the client to a treatment cut. Most stylists in our Salon Company would rather find time/ways to accommodate an add on…

  7. Allow Commission To Include Discounts

    When calculating commission the system works off the price paid by the client including any discounts.
    This means that staff get penalized for discounted vouchers and when I run a special offer.
    I'd like the option to be able to choose to include discounts or exclude them when running my commission reports

  8. Pop up when a guest has a gift card instead of searching

    It would be helpful to have the available gift cards pop up in the check out screen just as the series pop up

  9. Stock - Stock Monitoring In Real Terms

    Under professional stock details a tick box of all the treatments that the salon offers so as you can select the treatments that the specific product is used in. This would be in the relevant mls etc. On a monthly or quarterly basis a report could be run detailing how many mls should have been used and this can be compared with a physical check done in house. This way it can be easily seen if the salon is getting as many treatments out of a product as they should be.

  13. Spell Check options throughout the system

    Spell Check options throughout the system - not just in Marketing. We can't catch every spelling mistake for our online booking descriptions and I know our clients are annoyed with our typos! HA!

  14. Training Mode

    Having a "Training Mode", on the desktop.
    This would be great to have with New Starters or keeping other staff members up to date with the latest procedures. This way we could do some training without affecting appointments that are already booked in, and building up confidence before going onto the main desktop

  15. Enable treatcard points to be added on Phorest go.

    When departing clients via our mobile devices we are not currently able to add the Treatcard number and have to wait for the desktop version to become free. It would speed up payments if this could be completed via Phorest Go.

  16. Have a report to email clients future appointments

    often clients want us to email them their future appointments. I know there is an option to print future appointments but its a waste of paper and rather more time consuming than to just be able to take a screenshot and attach it to an email.

  17. employee clock in/clock out hours should show up on payroll reports. Right now the only thing that shows up are commissioned employees

    Right now I have to compile 2 reports to do payroll. Payroll reports now only show commissions/tips. It should include employees who clock in and clock out- Front desk and other help, Commissions and tips.

    It would be great if it showed every providers total sales by day/commissions/tip. / hours worked by day -for clocked in employees. then totals for that pay period.

  18. Appointments - Display Gift Voucher Balance On Pay Screen

    It would be helpful to have a gift card balance indicator on the pay screen similar to the account/course/treatcard buttons that are currently displayed. It would aid in a better clients experience.

  19. 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.

  20. Security - Allow Access Settings To Individual Reports

    Allow us to grant access to particular reports/sections to our team as some of the reports are very beneficial for them to be able to generate but we don't want to grant them access to all information on the business
