This article will show you how to add client and appointment notes and where they can be viewed in the Client Card.
In Phorest, you can add two different types of notes for a Client:
Client Notes are general notes about a client that you would like to keep a record of. These notes could be anything from the client's interests and hobbies down to how they like their coffee.
Service and Color Notes are notes specifically relating to a particular appointment (e.g. color formulas, products used etc.).
