What are Client Types



Client Types are used to track client source and/or retention.  They are color-coded on your schedule screen as the bottom, right corner of the appointment box OR as the color of the appointment box itself (depending on your Schedule Colors setting).
 
    OR   

There are 4 Client Types that are pre-set in the system:
·        New Request: A NEW Client who has requested a specific Service Provider
·        Request: An EXISTING Client who has requested a specific Service Provider
·        Salon: An EXISTING Client who did not request a specific Service Provider
·        Walk-In: A Client who has not booked in advance before coming in
 
Custom Client Types can also be created to track other important data such as Groupon customers, Senior Discounts, Bridal Parties, etc!

Client Types also are shown when Printing the Schedule:
(Schedule > Print Schedule > Choose Dates > "Advanced Report" and/or "Only show scheduled blocks" [optional] > GO)
