One of the key benefits of using Pencil’em is the way in which we will simplify scheduling and help you eliminate those annoying “no-shows” that just happen! But Pencil’em does so much more. Do you sometimes find yourself just sitting there with open blocks of time. Why not send an email blast to your “group” of Pedicure clients with a one day special for those open slots. Or do the same for those clients who haven’t been in for awhile (don’t worry, Pencil’em will quickly tell you who has been absent). Bottom line, you have to “market” your business, and Pencil’em is loaded with ways to get the job done! Stay tuned for more exciting ideas on how to grow your business and make more money using Pencil’em!
We’ve got a simple but useful new feature to tell you about today, and it involves how you view your client lists. By default, Pencil’em will sort your clients by First name, so “Amy Smith” would come before “Christine Jones” and so on. We’ve now added the ability to list your clients alphabetized by last name, which does a few things. It changes the way the lists are laid out, so instead of “Amy Smith”, it will now read “Smith, Amy”. Alphabetizing would then take place based on the last name so “Jones, Christine” would come before “Smith, Amy”. Once enabled, all client lists will use the new format. This includes the scheduling page (client drop down), the clients page (client list, and email clients), as well as Pencil’em Mobile.
To enable this feature, simply click “Settings”, then click “Appointment Settings” in the left hand navigation. You will see a new drop down menu for “Client Name Display”. Simply select “First” or “Last” name first. Simple as that!
