How Do I Book Appointments?????? When you open the app, it prompts you to sign in or sign up. I sign up and then select that I am a client, and it tells me I don't need to make an account, I can just book online. But online it directs me to the app! What the heck?!

No App for customers
You should have an app for customers too. I go to apps for everything, it's hard to believe I have to go to a website to book my appointments in 2021. 😢

Good but...
Frustrated that you can't still change how the client gets ahold of you. For instance, it only lets you put in your phone number versus multiple other forms of contact like your professional email, fb or Instagram message, etc. I personally have sent in this request multiple times because I want to have a healthy boundary and reserve even my work cell for special occasions. The card reader doesn't also sync, and even if I save cards on file, I have to do it again if they want to purchase products separately. It should be saved the first time. While they have great features, there's still very important fixes still to be made. I'm only staying because I have so many cards on file, so I feel locked in.

Love it!
I love it! My only complaint is not being able to split the payment so my guests who want to pay 1/2 cash 1/2 on their card during check out

Great booking system
This is a great app to use for your business as an independent hairstylist. Easy to manage for your clients and yourself. I only wish they would make a few changes. 1 at checkout it only scans cards with raised numbers, most new cards have flat account numbers. 2. At checkout there is no way to take more than one form of payment. Some customers like to pay with a little cash and put the rest on a card. 3 There is no way of adding a dollar amount discount. I have to adjust the actual price. Which when it comes to writing it off in your taxes, there is no record. 4 when I run the report for sales tax it gives you a line item of just the tax amount. No total $ sales amount, and no grand total. You have to add up all the amounts and total it yourself. To file and pay sales tax you need the amount sold, the tax amount and the totals on each.

LOVE This app- One Complaint
I truly enjoyed using this app. It was really easy to use and I could have things the way I wanted. The only criticism that I had was that it does not offer waitlists to clients and that it is not multi-user friendly. The salon I'm at uses Vagaro and promotes all the small businesses renting there through it so I'll have to make the switch. The owner would when used this app if it was multi-user friendly.

New update!!
I've been using the app for over a year now. You update the app without updating the app with any new functions. We send in our ideas but still no update. If I received a booking Im only aware by receiving email/text alert. I should be able to look at recent activity in the app. There's no way of keeping track of cancellations, still unable to give a $ amount discount, no card reader, sometimes we have messages for clients we need a pop-up message box for when the client enter the site. We should also have an option to take deposits. I was with accuity I left because GlossGenius was more appealing and had a more professional setup but it's lacking a lot of options needed for bookings.

VERY easy to use - I just have 3 things I wish it had...
I love this app. It does all the scheduling stuff I don't have time to deal with. However, I wish there was a way to have custom gift cards made (Square offers this service) and have a card reader since taking a pic of the card - it very rarely works. Also won't accept Visa gift cards, which caught me off guard at the end of a very expensive service on a teen who had saved up for a year. I also wish there was a way to customize individual client settings...most love the text reminders & emails, and others can't stand them...but it's all or nothing. It would be awesome if there was a quantity option when booking an appointment - I have clients who come in as mother/daughter, both getting haircuts, but the only option is to double the price on what looks like one haircut. In the meantime, I have entered “Woman Cut 2”, etc to the service menu.
