System Updates: Version 3.5.1

Read about the latest improvements and features we've added to the Salon by Premier Software product.

New Features and Changes

We regularly introduce new features into our software products. The following new features or changes have been included in this release.

Blank Pricing Structures

It is no longer possible to create a new, blank price structure. You can still create a new price structure by copying an existing price structure first, and then change the relevant prices. If you really wish to create a new, blank price structure, please contact our support team who can do this for you.

Improvements

We regularly review client feedback and support issues. The following items have been resolved in this release.

Amend Receipt

When amending receipts and then reprinting a bill, the system was diplaying todays date for the receipt date. We have updated this to show the correct date in which the original bill was completed.

Amend Receipts

When amending the receipt of a bill that had additional treatments/ services added, with a quantity greater than 1, the unit price would be re-calculated incorrectly.

This has been addressed.

Birthday Marketing email

Changed the marketing client screen to have an option to enable/disable birthday options entirely and allow the user to select 0 days from now as an option to send birthday related marketing on the same day. Days option now will send an email on the selected number of days before only. E.g selected 3 days before will only send an email 3 days before instead of 3, 2 and 1 days before the clients birthday
