New: Locking Invoices And Payments

StudioCloud now supports locking and unlocking of invoices and payments. Locking of invoices and payments is ideal for situations where you want to prevent the accidental editing of an invoice or payment by an employee and/or you want to make sure that your daily accounting is correct.

StudioCloud also provides an end of day close wizard to streamline locking the invoices and payments at the end of the day.

In addition, locking of invoices and payments also have the following features
  • Security roles for deciding which employees can and can not lock or unlock invoices or payments
  • Group operations to speed up exporting locked payments and invoices to a csv file for reporting purposes

New: Scheduling Employees

With the latest update of StudioCloud, version 3.1.360, the "Resources" tab in the new and edit session, appointment, and event window has been improved to speed up scheduling. 

Below are a list of the new improvements:

Automatically Hide Resources That Aren't Used

If a StudioCloud account doesn't have any equipment or locations then the corresponding tables under the "Resources" tab will be automatically hidden to provide more space for scheduling employees.

Only Show Available Employees For Same Day Appointments

The "Available Employees" table has been improved and only shows employees as available now if they meet the following criteria:

  • They have not been added to the scheduled table for the current session
  • They are not currently booked with any other session that overlaps with the current session that is being booked.
  • They are not currently marked as unavailable according to their business hours

If you would like to view a list of all employees click the "Show All Employees" checkbox at the top of the "Resources" tab and it will display all of the employees.

This new feature only applies to single day events and not to multi-day events. Multi-day events display the entire list of employees.

Requires The PartnerBoost or EmployeeBoost Subscription

Scheduling employees is only available for PartnerBoost and EmployeeBoost subscribers and, as such, this feature requires a PartnerBoost or EmployeeBoost subscription.
