How do I mark a staff member as being Requested in an appointment?

Sometimes a client will request their appointment to be with a particular stylist/therapist. This article will show you how you can mark services/treatments in an appointment as being requested with a specific staff member by a client.

Making a Booking in the Salon

Go to your Appointments screen and create the appointment.

After you've added services to the appointment, you can check the box under the RQ column to specify that the client requested this particular staff member when making the booking.

Once you've checked the RQ box, you'll notice an 'R' symbol appearing on the booking in the staff member's column. This is to indicate that the staff member was requested for this service.

Requesting a Staff Member in an Online Booking

When a client makes a booking online, they will have an option to choose a specific staff member from a drop-down list. If they pick a staff member, the booking will include an 'R' symbol on your Appointments calendar in Phorest to indicate that the staff member was specifically requested during the booking.
