Xmas Update – 01/12/2015

Well, do we have some updates to share!

It’s nearing Christmas and the entire Pabau team has been hard at work, updating bits and pieces of the program to be better than ever (and adding a few new features, as well!). There have been a lot of updates, big and small, so here’s just a little summary of what we’ve been up to.

Ready Yourself 

In the update, we will be removing the default ‘How heards’. This means that Website, Existing Customer and all other static items will be removed. But don’t worry, you will not lose any previous data, we are just allowing you to customise this list better.
