Check out the latest updates to Shortcuts Live!

Appointment Book

  • We have improved the user-friendliness of the Appointment Book by making the mouse cursor change as it hovers over different parts of the screen. 
  • We have resolved an issue where breaks were not correctly labelled in the Appointment Book. 
  • Users no longer have the ability to edit a booking that is currently in progress by another user.
  • Tasks and breaks are now displayed in white when they are being moved to a new position in the Appointment Book. 
  • We have made it easier to move appointments with multiple services while in Week View, by automatically moving all services together. 

Point of Sale

  • We improved the security of the Point of Sale by preventing users from applying  discounts to ad-hoc refunds.
  • We have resolved issues so service and product taxes are now correctly applied in Point of Sale, the rebooking prompt is no longer presented multiple times following a transaction, and post-transaction tips are now always available.

  • You are no longer required to enter birth date details.
