We regularly review client feedback and support issues. The following items have been resolved in this release.
Can replicate on Fox Hair Design Training
Client Jasmine Devoss has two appointments booked at different sites, one at Hinckley that was web booked and future paid and one at Barwell.
1) Click on appointment at Barwell and select 'Delete';
2) Choose 'no refund' in 'refund action and green tick
Expected result: appointment hasn't been future paid and no action selected. The appointment is cancelled and you are returned to the diary
Actual result: You are taken to a till screen with no bill lines, only option is to red cross. Appointment not deleted
It seems that the 'Delete appointment' screen shows the 'refund action' box far right and therefore directs you to a till screen - this screen should only show this pop up & follow this navigation path if a refund action is needed (e.g the appointment ticked has been future paid)
