It might be a little much to be constantly logging into Simple Salon throughout the day using your Username, Password and Company ID.
The 4 Digit PIN Quick Login feature allows you and your staff to quickly sign in and out of Simple Salon, to ensure that all activities are tracked per operator.
To begin the day, someone will first need to LOG IN using a set of login details—Username, Password, and Company ID.
Then throughout the day, your operators can SIGN IN using their 4 digit PIN numbers. This will ensure that all activities are tracked per operator i.e. appointment updates, appointment deletions, transactions etc. These activities are tracked in your Activity Report.
Enabling the Quick Login feature
You will first need to log into your Simple Salon account as an Administrator user. Then to enable the 4 Digit Quick Login, head over to your Settings, and into Application Settings.
Tick Enable Quick Login and select from the drop down menu your Quick Login—this is how long you want to stay logged in for while your Simple Salon is not being used. After this set amount of time, your account will automatically sign out to the PIN screen. Save these changes.
Note: Don't make the Timeout too short, otherwise you might find it signing out too soon, while you're in the middle of something. It will sign out if nothing has been clicked on the screen for the set length of time.
At any time you can also select the Sign Out option (top menu bar):
You will also have the Log Out option below the pin screen if you ever need to log out completely. You and your staff can simply enter their 4 digit PIN, and you're back in!
