Appointments to Wait / Serve
Sometimes a busy salon may find themselves wanting to keep an orderly appointments book, while also maintaining a healthy flow of walk in and call ahead customers. SuperSalon can accommodate this, as well as allow you to turn an appointment into a ticket on the wait/serve screen.
Produced directly from valuable user feedback and suggestions from you, the following settings will allow you to turn a scheduled appointment into a ticket on the wait/serve screen with a few clicks right from the appointments book.
Enabling Appointments as Tickets
Step One: On SuperSalon, go to Setup > Software Settings > Sales > Tickets & Sales. Scroll down and enable the following settings:
- Show Appointment Time on Wait Screen
- Allow Appointments As Call Aheads
Step Two: Save the settings page and press the F5 key on the keyboard.
Moving an Existing Appointment to the Wait/Serve Screen
Step One: From the Wait/Serve screen, click the Show Appointments button in the menu on the bottom of the screen.
Step Two: Click on the appointment you’d like to move to the wait/serve screen, which will immediately create a ticket copy of the standing appointment.
Step Three: Appointments will be denoted with a purple ticket header on the wait serve/screen, as described in the legend in the bottom left corner of the wait/serve screen. From here they can be marked as here or late, moved to servicing, or canceled if necessary – just like a call ahead.
Wait/Serve Quick View
Step One: On the Appointments tab, you can click the Wait/Serve button in the menu at the bottom of the screen to get a quick view of the current tickets on the wait/serve screen.
Step Two: From here you can manipulate the tickets in waiting or servicing, just like from the Wait/Serve screen.
