It has been a while, but this November Picktime updates is packed with tons of new and powerful features that have been highly requested by most of our customers that will make your user experience as smooth as possible. We are so happy with these major improvements and appreciate your patience. We went live with tons of new features early this week and below you will see a detailed overview of all of the features.
Auto Customer detection
We have had a lot of our users complaining about customer duplications. We are very happy to announce that will not be happening anymore. Our team has developed an algorithm that automatically detects the user information and recognizes them as an existing contact. Note: Merging contacts is still on our to-do list.
Automatic updating of user profile
Your customers don't have to enter their details if their details are already saved by the system. They simply have to log in when making their appointment and their details will be automatically populated. This saves them the trouble of not having to re-enter their information.
We have launched our Salesforce Integration. You can now push all your contacts to your Salesforce account and run email campaigns etc from your Salesforce account. The Mandatory fields to push a contact to your Salesforce are Firstname, Lastname, and Email.
Sort customer additional information
Sort the customer additional information just the way you want. Just simply drag and drop the field and it will rearrange its position.
Send email notifications to both Team Member and Admins
You can now decide how you want to receive email notifications. Now you can choose to send emails only to your Team Members, to the Admin or both Team Members and Admins.
Add your own booking page meta title and description
Add your own title and description to your online booking page. You can change it however you want to increase your visibility online and on social media.
Show customer name first on the Calendar
Instead of showing the service name first, you can choose to show the customer name first on the appointments in the calendar section.
Set default working hours
Assigning working hours has been made much easier now. You can just add in working hours for one team member/resource and click on 'make these working hours default'. You don't have to go through the hassle of adding working hours for all team members/resources. They will be automatically assigned the working hours that have been made default.
You can download a complete report of which includes all information like customer emails, addresses, phone numbers, etc.
