Latest Shortcuts Fusion Updates

Posted on 8th April 2016 by Stephanie Heslop

We have released some updates to Shortcuts Fusion. These changes affect your Shortcuts system, as well as your S.M.A.R.T. System.

These updates will take affect when you use Shortcuts Updates to upgrade to the latest version.

Version no: 8.0.16

If you have any questions please call us on 1300 667 374.

New features

Appointment Book

  • To help you manage your day more effectively, we have created a tool to help you reserve a percentage of your Appointment Book for walk-in clients. This smart tool will notify you if you attempt to select a time slot that will exceed your allocated threshold, and will shade over the area in the Appointment Book once capacity has been reached. Check out how it works in this video 
  • We have created a visual tool to help you easily identify booking availability. These indicators change colour to reflect how booked an employee or particular time slot on the appointment book is for the day. Check out how it works in this video
