  • We have stopped an error from appearing when the End Sale icon is accidently selected multiple times.

Appointment Book

  • We have resolved an issue to ensure employee-specific pricing for services is always displayed correctly.


  • You can now choose whether or not you would like your clients to receive an email confirmation for their booking.
