Welcome to the August 14, 2023 release of features. We hope you like the latest updates in this version, the highlights are as follows:

Productivity and performance report

You can now get a clear picture of how your staff is doing with our “Complete Productivity & Performance” report. This tool shows you everything in one place, helping you make smart choices to improve work, identify strengths, and address areas for improvement. This report is ideal for Alterations, Tailoring, and Bridal businesses.

In order to use this tool you need to setup each employees pay type (Hourly rate or commission base).

Here are the steps on how to set it up:

  1. Navigate to Settings > Users
  2. Click on the user’s name that’s being modified
  3. If an employee works on an hourly rate, enter the value in the “Hourly rate” field.
  4. If an employee works on a commission basis, then enter the percentage in the “Commission rate” field. Please note that there are two commission rate options.
    – Commission from transactions > An employee is paid on a percentage basis for transactions they place.
    – Commission from processes > The employee receives a percentage of the work they have completed. In other words a percentage of the work they have marked done.
