- Increase Field Size for Cost and PO # Data Fields
Increasing the three data fields in the AP product: Price and Cost data fields to allow formatting for the Yen currency, and PO (purchase order) # data fields to allow entry of long PO #.
- Implement support for additional foreign currencies (Payscape transaction support)
In order to support global client operations, the application has been updated with support for both display and payment processing (via Payscape Merchant Gateway) for the following currencies: Swiss Franc, Danish Krone, Hong Kong Dollar, Norwegian Krone, New Zealand Dollar, and Swedish Krona. Additionally, the South African Rand, Great Britain Pounds, and Japanese Yen will now process in the selected currency through the Payscape international merchant gateway.
- Notifications Sent for Updated PO Number
Email notifications have been updated to use updates to the PO Number field within appointments as a trigger to send the appointment change notification. In the future, any update that includes changes to this field will send a notification to appropriate contacts based on the client's notification settings.
- Booking Appointments from Site Admin
The application has been updated to ensure that administrators booking appointments for various customers will not carry forward the purchase order number data from one appointment to another. In some cases, the purchase order information remained in the field when the administrator would begin to book a subsequent appointment. In the future, the purchase order number will not be used in additional bookings.
- Package Required for Customer Booking
The application has been updated to ensure that a package session or amount is used when booking an appointment from the customer interface, where it is required by the client account's configuration. In some cases, customers could attempt to book an appointment but the assigned package was not located and therefore caused an error within the interface. In the future when packages are required to book an appointment, the package will be properly decremented to account for the appointment and service booked.
- Editing Appointments with Required PO Number
The application has been updated to address an issue where the PO Number field was behaving as if no data existed in the field. When a unique PO Number is required, the appointment update was not properly validating that text existed in that data field. In the future, the field will not cause an error when updating the details of an appointment when the PO number is required to be entered and a unique number.
- Custom Terms in Notifications
Email notifications have been updated to reflect customized field labels based on the configuration of the client account. If a client alters the standard terms for first name or last name, those field terms will now display as configured in email notifications for appointments. Default system terms will not be used in email notifications when they have been altered by a client or system administrator.
- Customer Registration Email Updates
The Customer Registration email notification has been updated to remove a reference to the user's login information. This change was made to ensure references to login credentials are not included in the email message. New customers created after this change will not see the information included in the introductory paragraph of information.
- Email Notifications with Number in Group
Email notifications have been updated to ensure that the data header "Number in group" is placed in an appropriate location in relation to other appointment-specific details. This change will impact emails generated after the change and will not require administrators to make any alterations to the customizations of their email notifications.
- Customers Booking Rooms
The application has been updated to ensure that the availability of each room is accurately utilized when booking appointments from the customer interface. In some cases, the rooms were displayed as available when they actually were not available to be booked. In the future, the interface will ensure that only rooms with availability will be listed for selection in the booking process.
- Marking days on or off
Staff member availability features have been updated to ensure that appointments in the past are not impacting the ability to mark an individual day off (or on). In some cases, older appointments that with a status that was not updated was impacting the ability to change the status of a specific day on the grid. This situation has been addressed and will no longer limit the ability to mark the date.
- PayPal Redirect for Gift Certificate
The integration with PayPal as a payment transaction gateway has been updated to ensure that gift certificates can be purchased using PayPal without issue. In some cases, the customer would be directed to PayPal to enter their account information and then not directed back to AppointmentPlus to complete the gift certificate purchase transaction. This has been resolved and customers will now successfully complete the transaction on AppointmentPlus.
- Recipient of Notification Replies
Email notifications have been updated to send replies to notifications to an email address that is configured by the administrator. This will improve the deliverability of reply messages to the designated email address.
- Repeat Customer Reminder - Email Report
The repeat customer reminder notification has been updated to enable administrators to edit additional individuals that should receive copies of the reminders as well as a report of the notifications sent. The application currently doesn't provide a selection option for the destination email address. The change will provide administrators the ability to identify an email address that should be notified when customers receive a nurturing email message to encourage them to book a new appointment.
- Cannot access Location after disabling HQ sharing
For locations that are initially created or are set to share values from the headquarters location, when and if the sharing is turned off alters the ability to access the location's details. The system has been updated to ensure that locations, regardless of the status of sharing values, will be accessible and have their own display of appropriate preferences. With this change, locations that have been removed from sharing values with the headquarters location will now be accessible by administration users for managing appointments, customers, staff members, services and other attributes of the location.
- Hiding Reserve Tab from Make Appointment window
The application has been updated to ensure that the tab for creating a reserve appointment in the administration console is disabled when the preference is configured. This change will only be visible to administration users booking appointments through the make appointment window.
- Updated triggers for Change Notification Email
Email notifications have been updated to trigger the change notification be sent when the purchase order number field, when enabled for appointments, has been changed. This value is leveraged by certain accounts to track specific details of an appointment's payment method and will now be used to inform staff members or customers of alterations to the data in the field.
