How do I remove a staff member from Phorest?

This article will show you how you can archive an active staff member in your Phorest system. 

There are a few steps to completely removing a staff member from Phorest. You will need to remove their access, delete their roster, reschedule any existing appointments, and then finally archive them from the system. Each of these steps is described below.

Note: You cannot permanently remove a staff profile as it is linked to historic data within your system, i.e financial sales, service history, etc.

Remove a Staff Member's Access

Go to Manager > Staff Members and click on the name of the staff member you wish to remove to bring up their staff card.


You will see an Email field in the staff members' profile. Delete the email from this box to remove their access to the mobile app, Phorest Go. Then click Save in the top right corner.


Remove a Staff Member's Roster

Go to Manager > Staff Rosters and click on the staff member's shift you want to delete


Then click on the Delete button at the bottom of the screen that will appear on the right-hand side


Select Delete multiple, click each day of the week, then select Delete


Reschedule Existing Appointments/Archive Staff Member

If the staff member has future appointments scheduled you will receive this message:


Click on Show Appointments to see a list of those upcoming appointments as shown here:


You can then go through your Appointments screen, moving and rescheduling these appointments as necessary.

Once that is done you can go back to Manager > Staff - Click once on the checkbox on the left side of the staff member you wish to archive and click Archive on the top of the screen  mceclip0.png
