How to Book an Appointment from the POS

Booking an appointment from Point of Sale (POS) is faster when compared to booking an appointment from the Appointment Book.

You can choose to book an appointment from POS when you have a large number of guests walking-in without any prior appointment.

You can quickly launch POS, enter service details, and take the payment.

To book an appointment from the POS, do the following:

  1. Launch POS using one of the following methods:
    • Click the POS icon  on the top right corner of the Appointment Book.
    • On the Appointment Book, click an empty block, then click Point of Sale.
  2. In the guest details section at the top of the POS, enter either the mobile number, first name, or last name of the guest, and select a matching record from the list of suggestions.
  3. If the guest record doesn't exist in system, enter the following required guest details to create a new guest record:
  • Mobile number
  • First name
  • Last name
  • Gender
Note: The First name and Last name fields are always mandatory. You can choose to make Gender, Email, and Referral source fields mandatory from the Organization Settings (ADMIN > ORGANIZATIONS > SETTINGS > GUESTS).
