How to add, edit, and use the different kinds of Notes in Envision

Daily Notes

Appointment Notes

Client Notes

Popup Notes

Service Popup Notes

Booking Alerts

Daily Notes

Daily Notes are only stored in the Edit Appointment window for that Client on that specific day. This note will disappear when you book another appointment under the same Client any day after the day the note was created. 

You can only edit Daily Notes when double clicking a Client's appointment through the Appointment Screen.

You can also view Daily Notes on the Appointment's Tool Tip:

Appointment Notes

Like Daily Notes, Appointment Notes are edited and stored in the Client's Appointment window. However, the Note will only be stored for that specific appointment (instead of the entire day).

 Like Daily Notes, you can view the Appointment Notes when you hover over an Appointment on the appointment's tool tip or on the appointment directly on the calendar:

Client Notes

Client Notes are great to use if you must store permanent information about a Client. These Notes will stay on file unless manually deleted.

You can add, edit, and remove Client Notes through the Notes tab in the Client's Record.

You can also find them in the Notes tab in the Edit Appointment window.

Booking Alerts

Appointment Booking Alerts are used to notify, prohibit, or restrict Employees from booking a Client's appointment.

The Appointment Booking Alerts feature is available in the Ultimate edition of the Envision program. To upgrade, please contact our Sales Team at 800.231.9445 or sales@ennoview.com.

The Reason Note field allows you to input an explanation for the Booking Alert. If a client is set to Deny All Booking, they will be unable to book online. 

To Create a Booking Alert:

1. Click to edit a Client from the Client List in the Clients main dropdown menu.

2. Select a Booking Alert Type to control booking restrictions. Then, add a Reason Note (in the example below, we use "2 no shows!").

If the Client has a Booking Alert, a caution sign icon will popup along with the Reason Note when an Employee tries to book their appointment. If you choose Deny All Booking, a red stop sign will appear instead of the caution icon. 

Note: You can bypass a red stop sign by exiting out of the popup and continuing booking.

This feature makes it easier to prohibit or restrict certain clients from booking appointments.

Note: When the feature is set to Allow Booking, Booking Alerts will not appear. If you want to Allow Booking but still include an alert when scheduling the Client's appointment, use a Popup Note instead.
