automatically when you leave this page. The app current version number
is listed at the top of the page for reference.
Store hours and staff names are the minimum items that must be
entered when initially starting the application. You will be taken here
automatically if the store hours are missing. If the staff names are
missing, you should also enter them at this time.

24-hours providing you leave your email address.
Setting Store Hours
- Use the popup time pickers to enter the salon open time and close
time. Tap on the box for either Salon Open or Salon Close and a popup
window showing the time wheel (called a picker) will appear. The format
of the time will be displayed automatically in either in 12-hour time
or 24-hour time, depending on your location (locale); you can also
override the Time Format by tapping either the 12-hour or 24-hour
buttons. Currently, the time interval for appointments is fixed at 15
Entering Staff Names
- For each staff member whose name you want to enter, tap the Staff
Name popup picker until the position number appears in the "dial", then
enter either their first name only, or complete name in the text box to
the right of the position number. When finished with each name,
tap the Done button on the keyboard. The names will appear on the
top row of the appointment grid on the first page. You can have a
maximum of 12 staff names. Changes can be made at any time and are
saved when you leave the Setup page.
Selecting which Service to Use
- There are four (4) choices of services to use; they are listed
next to a checkbox, which you can tap to change to the different
service. You can see the results of your choice by going to
either the Appointments page and tapping on the Services textbox, which
will bring up the popup listing all of the services for the category
you have selected.
- The app comes with two (2) predefined services: one for Nail
Salons and the other for Hair Salons (including barber shops). You can
also make your own list of custom services by tapping the Custom
Services popup picker, just as you did for the Staff Names.
Starting with the first slot in the "wheel" (1), enter the custom
service in the box to the right. When done, don't forget to press
the "Done" button to save the service you just entered. Do the
same for any Additional Services, using the popup picker ("wheel") in
that section. When you leave the Setup page, the services you
entered will be saved.
- If you wish to keep track of activities (such as dinner
appointments, children's sports activities, etc.), tap the Manual Entry
button and you can enter unique one-time activities descriptions at the
time you are making the appointment.
- Do you wish to delete old appointments or keep all of them?
can enter the number of days that you want to keep all
appointments; every appointment that is older will be deleted.
If you decide to keep all of the appointments, you can selectively
delete them on the Appointment's page. However, the more old
appointments you keep, it's possible you will run out of memory when
running this app, especially if you are using photos at each
appointment. This app will warn you when the iPad gets low on memory.
- Several predefined color patterns have been designed to allow
to change the background colors of the Calendar page. Tap on one of
them and then go to the Calendar page to see if you wish to keep it or
revert back tot he default which is Saori.

synchronizing the database and settings between other devices (iPad)
who are all logged into iCloud using the <i>same</i> Apple
ID and password. Contact us using the Send Feedback button
