The Full Slate Care Team will be out of the office on Monday, May 25th, as we observe Memorial Day.
While this Memorial Day will be different, we wish everyone a Happy and Healthy Memorial Day.
Here are some tips for enjoying your Memorial Day weekend while observing the current health and safety guidelines.
With parts of the country slowly opening back up for business, you may want to consider adding a Wait List option to your booking page. A waitlist can give you a sense of just how many clients are eager to return, when, and for which services. You can also get a sense of which appointment types are in the highest demand to start building your schedule.
While we do not have a direct waitlist feature, we do offer a workaround that we hope can help. For more on this workaround, please see https://support.fullslate.com/hc/en-us/articles/203424809
We are excited to see our partners come back to work. If you want any help with configuring this workaround, please reach out to us at email@example.com
While it is hard to sometimes see the light at the end of the tunnel, some areas are slowly starting to come back to allow for businesses to resume activities, with some restrictions in place for everyone’s safety.
One way to get clients excited for your business reopening is to offer gift certificates and packages. Using this feature you can bundle certain services for a discount. This can be helpful for our salon and massage partners, as many clients will be looking to book several services in a session, and using packages can allow them to pre-pay for them, and adding the discount will further drive that decision.
You can send some incentives manually to loyal customers, as a way to let them know that you are ready to start scheduling again. This is done via the Sales tab on your Full Slate account.
If you want any help configuring this feature please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org

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 email@example.com 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!

The Full Slate Team
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.
Full Slate is committed to making sure your company and client information is secure.

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 email@example.com – this way, we can process the report more quickly as well as keep you directly up to date as fixes are released.
