    I like this feature, but booking from a mobile device gives no indication of any resource being used by service providers, so they can still double book rooms. Most of our spots are booked on mobile devices so this doesn't help us at all.

    Krista - Resource Management is in the new version of the apps that we are waiting to be released. They are going through approval process with Apple and Android right now. All new features always come out on the web version first and then we can add them to the apps afterwards.

    I'd like to see a way to limit the times a resource is available.... eg the resource is only available in the mornings or only twice a week.  So bookings using that resource are confined to selected time slots.  (Real world example, My downtown Room is only available Tues 9.30 - 1.30 & Thurs 9.30-1.30.  I'd like to make it so that people trying to book into those time slots know which location to attend)

     

    Pretty Please.

    is there a way to add a resource room and make it act like an employee? So it can have its own available times and spot on calendar?

    Hi Denise. You can absolutely do this. Once you get to the Employee Profiles page in Settings, select Add New Employee to get started. From here, you can create the item.

    Is there a way to default an employee to a resource? ie. I have 2 employees sharing my #2 massage room. I would like them to default to that room instead of mine. Also is there a way to see the availability of a resource on the calendar? ie. when the room is empty/available

    Hi Anna. I'm going to send a feature request to our development team for a resource to default to an employee. Currently, the way it's designed is you assign resources to specific services.

    To answer your second question, the software recognizes when a room has been booked and automatically defaults to the next available resource. 

    As far as seeing the availability, I'd advise using the Print Daily Plan tool. This allows you to print the schedule for the day and shows you if a resource has been assigned to that service or appointment. To access this feature, follow these steps:

    • Hover over Calendar at the top of the screen once you log in. 
    • Click Print Daily Plan. You'll have an option to print a more detailed plan, which provides additional information, including customer notes, past appointments, and previous product purchases. You can also see if an appointment has been assigned to a resource.

    That sounds like a great option for day of but I have 3 massage therapists sharing the same room. It is not easy to see if the room is available a week from now by printing out the daily log.
