      Does this software allow multi bookings (up to a limit) for one time slot eg fitness classes where up to 25 clients come along?

                From Matt @ ProTeach:

                "A lot of our students live in areas I get no 3G so can't access or update the diary. So have ended up with a paper and online diary"

                A great idea, and something we have always intended to implement. Thanks Matt

                        From Tom at www.MetroEco.co.uk

                        I would like an email every day of all appointments that are setup for that day as a backup just in case there are any problems accessing the system during the day...

                          • How to I block off hours or days (eg days off, holidays or appointments)

                            The way to do this is to create 3 services to do this:
                            "Day Off" which is 600 minutes long (10 hours), or you could do 480=8hours if you never have any business days longer than 8 hours
                            "Half Day Off" which is 240 (4 hours)
                            "One Hour Off" which is 60 minutes

                            Then set them all to be "Show Externally"= false and "Send Texts"=false

                            Then create an "appointment" with the relevant Employee with themselves as the Customer

                            and that should do what you need it to do.

                            Hope that helps

                            We are intending to implement these three services as…

                            • Allow user to suppress the welcome message and implement a low text alert email

                              The initial warning on the screen that comes up every time the user logs in is pretty much being ignored because it comes up every time.

                              So a proposal was made to allow users to check a tick box that says "don't show me this message again, unless there is a critical message/error"

                              Also there was a request for a low text alert, in the form of an email (or text!!) to let them know well in advance that they need to buy more texts.

                              • to be able to enter the actual amount paid and for this to be collated and able to report on total income?

                                instead of a change button when inputting amount paid it came up as total amount taken and was recorded under that patient/clients records as paid and total amount paid...would also be really helpful to be able to input method of payment cash chq visa banktransfer etc.

                                      It would be useful to be able to have customers pay a deposit via paypal rather than the full amount

                                      • Post Appointment Buffer

                                        I would like to be able to add a "buffer" time to the end of each appointment, so that perhaps the appointment is 45 mins, but I dont want to have a client until I have had a 15 minute break.

                                        • prompt user to extend employee hours

                                          When a DiaryBooker user (Admin) tries to book an appointment outside the normal hours of an employee, the system will let you do it, but will warn you that its happening and ask if you are sure. It would be helpful if there was an option in the dialog box at that point to extend the employee hours
