Online Booking is an additional feature that allows you to place the easy-to-use booking form on your website, enabling new clients to instantly book an appointment online.
Online Booking is integrated with Strato, and you can view the appointments booked from the web-site in your Scheduler.  Only appointments types that you designate for online bookings will be available to the clients.

You can now enable immediate SMS reminders to be sent to the clients after booking their appointment. The reminder will be sent within one hour after the booking.
To enable this, go to Tools > Administration > Appointment Types and start editing an appointment. Check the Immediate SMS Reminder option and then click Save.

It is now possible to partially invoice items in the sale session. Partial invoices are useful if you, for instance, have several items that you want to sell to the client while renting the rest. This change applies to the client, insurance, insurance groups, and lend invoices.
The invoiced items’ status will change to New (invoiced).  Any additional invoices for this sale session are only possible for the already invoiced items.
