This article will show you how to set up push notifications through Phorest Go for checked-in appointments
Mobile operating systems version 3.1.2 (Android) and 5.4.9 (iOS) now supports push notifications for appointment check-in events with Phorest Go. This includes your smartphone and your smartwatch, provided those devices support push notifications from apps on your phone.
After the update is complete, open the Phorest Go app. A prompt screen will appear to ask to allow or reject push notifications for Phorest Go. Click Lets Do It or No, another time to opt for your app preferences.
Note: Only Apple iOS devices will receive this prompt. Android devices will have push notifications enabled by default.
The staff member's device will now be tracked and connected to receive push notifications for their client's checking in for appointments.
Once a client is checked in on Phorest desktop or via Phorest Go, the staff member will receive a notification as seen below. This notification will only be sent to the staff linked with the first service in an appointment booking.
Once the staff receives the notification, clicking the notification will bring the staff into Phorest Go and the Client Card screen will appear on the Service History tab for the client checked in.
