Full Slate is committed to making sure your company and client information is secure. One way that we’ve done this is by implementing our auto-logout feature, ensuring the invaluable safety of your client information and schedule.
Since then, we’ve made some great enhancements with the help of your feedback!
Here are some of the updates you may notice:
- We’ll let you know that you’re about to be logged out due to inactivity (with the chance to stay logged in!)
- Once logged out, we’ll let you know why the logout has occurred (no more feeling of uncertainty!)
- Finally, you now have the option to take on the responsibility of your account’s session security and opt out of auto-logout
Let’s see what this will look like! Below you’ll see the auto-logout notice; on it, we’ve included a timer as well as two options – “Disable Auto Logout” or simply continue your session by clicking “Stay Signed-In”.
If ever you’d like to view or edit your user settings (including auto-logout), you can do this by opening your “Account” in the top navigation bar.
When making the decision to disable the auto-logout feature, we recommend reviewing your device settings regarding screen locks to protect your data (in case you do forget to logout!). If you have any questions about this, please contact support via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at (888) 489-6543.
As always, we invite you to let us know what we can do to continue improving your experience with Full Slate!

While this is not an Extreme Makeover, we have managed a little nip and tuck to the way our Gift Certificates and Packages look to your clients.
For several years we have offered an additional service with Full Slate whereby you can create and sell gift certificates and packages. More on that feature can be found via our Help Center
While this is a great feature, we know that it was due for a bit of an upgrade, so we have added some changes to make them more visually appealing.
So what has changed?
Here is the what our certificates have looked like.
And this the new version
Starting today, your logo will now appear on the certificate. This is the logo featured in your company settings found via Setup > Company Details. Your company name will appear beneath the logo. Information about your Landing Page address, the redemption code, and the expiration dates will appear on the black bar.
A few other tweaks were made so that the vouchers look more streamlined than before. Another change was to limit the characters used in the description of the product and the length of your title of services. A character-counter was added, so when you are creating these items, the system will let you know how many characters you have left.
We are still hard at work on making this feature even better but we hope that you enjoy this improvement. If you have any questions about these updates or would like some help setting up this feature, please feel free to Contact Us at Full Slate Support.

Thank you for your assistance with informing us of the various issues you’ve experienced following this release. We deeply apologize for the inconvenience and frustration and appreciate your patience as we work through this.
We’ve heard several suggestions and requests to roll back. We’ve upgraded the way our system manages and encrypts its data (it’s much more secure); unfortunately, this also means rolling back would actually cause more issues than it would help.
In lieu of that, our team has been working tirelessly to address the issues that have been reported. We’d like to post an update so that you are all looped in on our progress with regard to the fixes:
Issues we’ve already released fixes for:
500 Internal Server Error On Booking Page
500 Internal Server Error On Packages History
Login Page Not Loading Properly
Issues we’re close to releasing fixes for:
Email and SMS Appointment Reminders Are Not Sending
Issues that we are still actively working on:
“Nothing to Pay For.” Error When Scheduling An Appointment
iPhone 6 Not Loading Appointment Booking Page Correctly
Error Selecting Dates for Booking Service on Mobile
Switching Company Doesn’t Refresh UI Properly
Finally, we’d like to apologize for not communicating and updating everyone as often as we ought to have. As mentioned previously, our development team has been extremely focused, working around the clock to develop and release fixes. We’re continuing to work through this list and will let you know as fixes are released.
Please continue to let us know if you experience any issues! The most helpful way to inform us would be by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org – this way, we can process the report more quickly as well as keep you directly up to date as fixes are released.
One question we frequently get in the world of Full Slate Support is, “When are you going to be releasing new updates?” We completely understand, as everything has room to improve and Full Slate is no different. But rest assured, our engineers are continuously hard at work making improvements and adjustments to Full Slate based on, in large part, feedback from customers like you!
One of the improvements we have made recently concerns the security of your account and the site. Our last blog focused on the importance of good password protocol. With that in mind, we will be updating our password protocol at Full Slate, and wanted to let you know.
What this means for you
Starting on Monday, April 10, we will all need to update our Full Slate passwords. We are making this change to better secure not only the Full Slate site, but your particular account as well. As we discussed in our previous article, one of the easiest and most effective ways to secure your personal information and account now is by strengthening your passwords. At Full Slate, we want to encourage each of our customers to take steps to protect their identities and businesses online – and one way is by launching our new Full Slate Password Protocol.
You can change your Full Slate password immediately, by heading to Account > My Profile.
Here is the new Full Slate Password Protocol
- 8 characters minimum
- One upper case letter
- One lower case letter
- One number
- One special character
Don’t worry if you forget to do this now. The system will prompt you to update your password once the protocol has been fully launched within the system.
