Over the last few weeks we’ve launched a few upgrades to the Pencil’em Mobile platform. We are always striving to make things easier when it comes to the mobile platform, and our new upgrades bring a whole new level of functionality to your hand held device.
We’ve changed the way the “Clients” button works to make it a little more user friendly. Clicking the “Clients” button now displays your entire client list. You can scroll through the list and click on a client who’s information you would like to see. The new client screens look something like this:
New Scheduling Features
We’ve also made some changes to the way you interact with your schedules. We’ve added a delete appointment function that you will find when viewing your daily schedule. Click the “View Schedule” button and you will be taken to a screen with today’s appointments. (You can select a different day by changing the options in the drop down menu at the top of the page and clicking “Go”.) Notice, there is now a red x floating off to the right hand side of each appointment. Clicking this X will bring up a confirmation screen, so you don’t accidently delete an appointment you didn’t mean to. This looks like this:
New “Appointment Quickview”
We’ve added a new feature from the same “View Schedule” screen that gives you a more detailed look at any particular appointment. To open the “Appointment Quickview” click on “View Schedule” in the main navigation. Click (or press) on the client name and the “Appointment Quickview” will open. This view gives you a more in-depth view of the appointment, service being performed, client information, and appointment notes you’ve left for yourself. See below for more details:
