We are excited to release some features we have been working on over the past few months.  These updates range in a wide area of the platform and should help with business operations!

Blocking A Pet Owner From Making Reservations


We now have the ability to block pet owners from making reservations.  To do this you can access the "Owner Card" by clicking on the owner icon in the customer browser or within the pet card.  In the "info" tab of the owner card if you scroll to the bottom, you can now select the check box that says "Block Reservations", then click "Save".  Note this this will block the owner from submitting any of their own reservations.  They can still message the business and see past reservations.  Your staff can also override but there are numerous flags and pop up windows warning staff about the owner being blocked.  See this video for how to use this new feature!

Blocking A Pet From Making Reservations 


We also made a new block pet feature similar to the block owner feature above.  This feature is useful if a pet fails an assessment or if you do not want to book a pet for any future reservations but the owner has dogs you want to still be able to make reservations for.  To block a pet from making future reservations, click the pet icon to access the pet card.  Click the "info" tab and scroll to the bottom and check the "Block Reservations" checkbox.  When a customer goes to make a reservation their pet will be grayed out and unelectable for them to make a reservation.  Your staff can override this but will have numerous flags and windows alerting them they are making a reservation for a blocked pet.  See this video for how to use this new feature!

Updates To The Pet And Owner Cards


In both the pet and owner card we have replaced the icons in the top right corner to a drop down select with writing.  This makes it more clear and allows us to add more actions.  In the owner card (accessed by clicking the owner icon) we added "Send Message" in that drop down menu.  This allows you to send messages to the owner in many more places throughout the platform.  In the pet card we added a "Info" tab.  You can now easily update basic pet info directly in the pet card instead of having to click into the pet profile.  This will save a lot of time when making simple updates to the pet.  See this video for how to use this new feature!

Making Multiple Classes At One Time


From some great feedback from our pet trainers we have added the ability to make multiple classes of a course at one time instead of individually.  You can access this by going to the trainer dashboard and clicking "manage courses".  If you click "Add New Start Date".  When entering in your first class information, when you scroll down you will now see "Optional: Create Multiple Class Dates".  When you click this you can enter your repeating options and it will make all of those classes at one time instead of making each individually.  See this video for how to use this new feature!

Cloning A Class And Adding Current Customers To The New Class 


We have added the ability to clone an existing course by clicking the clone icon where the course appears in the "Manage Courses" area of the trainer dashboard.  Now when you clone a course it will show a list of current customers in that course.  You can select some or all of them to add to the new cloned course.  This makes it much faster and easier for classes that are on going and the same customers continue taking the same course.  See this video for how to use this new feature!

Upcoming Release


Along with these new features we have been working on some other big features over the last couple months and they are almost ready.  Here are some of the additional new features we have built and are testing before we get them released out.

  • Customer Communication and Marketing.  We are finishing testing this but have an open BETA test.  If you would like us to enable this for you and send you some training on how to use it email us at Support@pawpartner.com and we will enable it for you.
  • Pre-requisites for reservations.  The ability to require assessments before booking boarding or daycare.  Also the ability to require completing one training before booking another trianing.
  • Training and Roster Updates.  From feedback from some of our great trainers we are working on some updates to make it easier to operate.

As always thank you wall for your continued feedback and support!  If you have any questions about this release feel free to contact us at support@pawpartner.com
