How do I create a new Reservation?

New Reservations are created on the Bookings screen

You can create a Reservation by either:

1. Tapping on the + Icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen and selecting Service, Class or Timetable Class

2. Tapping directly on the time in the Bookings screen, where you would like to add the Reservation


Search your existing Customer List by typing the customer's name into the search bar OR tap the + icon to add a New Customer

Select the Service from the Recent Reservations list of an existing customer OR scroll down for a full list of Service options

Tap Employee: Any if you want to specify which Employee carries out the service. Select the required Employee from the list presented


Select date/time from the list of availability

It is possible to manually override the available time slots by using the Enter Manually option

Please note: the Enter Manually option disregards system-calculated availability and allows double-bookings

The following Confirmation pop-up box will appear:

From here you can add notes, select whether the customer receives an email confirmation of their booking (this is enabled by default), and select the reservation Request Type
