Slick allows you to create unique user logins for each staff member so they can access their schedule from home or on the go. You can choose different "permission levels" for staff access, restricting visibility of certain areas like financial or client information.
Each user will have their own username (their email address) and their own secret password, so to switch users, the current user would logout of Slick and the next user would enter their email address and password. This method is significantly safer than a 4 digit pin code to switch between users as these codes can be easily shared or copied.
Slick offers 3 levels of staff access:
Can: access and edit all areas of the system
Cannot: No restrictions
Can: create and edit bookings and clients, checkout clients, access cash up, view settings and stock, use stock scanny app
Cannot: access any financial reports or dashboards, change service prices, add/delete services, change product prices, edit stock levels in the stock manager
3 STYLIST READ ONLY iCAL SYNC
Can: Sync appointments from their column to their iPhone calendar on a read only basis with visibility of colour notes
Cannot: Create or edit their bookings, view client contact details for their bookings, access any other part of the system
Setting staff logins and access is done via "Permissions" and must be done by the Salon Manager.
To create a new staff member login with Manager or Receptionist level access, click 'Menu' in the top left corner:
Select 'Staff logins':
Click the purple button which says "Add new user":
Fill in your staff members Name, Email address and then click on the Permission Level drop-down to select an access level for them:
Then click 'Save' and this will send them an email with a temporary password which they can use to login and then create a new secret password.
The email should come through instantly, so please check your junk mailbox if you haven't received it within a minute. The new user can login by either:
- Clicking the link in the email, or
- Going to salon.getslick.com
The new user should use their email address and the temporary password to login. The temporary password is in the email and highlighted yellow below:
To setup staff access for the read-only view of their schedule, you'll be using our Calendar Sync function:
Please note, calendar sync currently only works for iPhone/iPad users as it syncs with Apple iCal. We're working on an Android version
To setup cal sync for a staff member, go to Menu, then Settings as before, and select Sync Calendar:
Click on the staff member's name you are setting up and enter their personal email address that is connected to their iPhone iCal and press "Send email". We’ll then send them a link to subscribe.
They will need to open their email on their iPhone or iPad and check their inbox for a message that looks like below. Tap the purple 'Click Here' button to start the sync:
Then tap 'Subscribe':
Then select 'View Events':
Once in your iCal on your phone, you can check which columns are subscribed in the calendar app, click on Calendars at the bottom of the page:
Then scroll down to where it says "subscribed" and check the one you want is ticked.
(If you no longer want to be subscribed you can untick them)
