These updates will be released on Monday 14 July, 2014. There will be a short outage of 30 minutes at 8am, as these changes are made. After this time, your Shortcuts Live system will continue to function as usual, without you having to do a thing.

  • The following KPIs are now built in: products and services, revenue, number of clients, average spend, retail upsell, and more.
