10) Employee Set Up In Advantage Salon Software and Spa Software.


This is the screen that allows you to enter all the users/employees in the ADVANTAGE Salon Software and Spa Software program.  You can search for an existing Employee by Last Name or Employee ID.


n        You must enter an Employee ID for every employee.  It can be an alpha numeric ID but the ID does not have any need for special nomenclature.  An Employee ID must be a minimum of 4 characters long.

n        Make sure you select a User Group for the employee and enter a Password if you want the employee to have a Logon.  If you do not enter a Password, the employee can log on with just his or her name and will not need to enter a Password.

n        Make sure you set up the Services this employee can perform (select Edit Services).  This can only be done after you Setup Services (section 2.4).

n        You can change the status from Active to Inactive to exclude them from Point of Sale and the Scheduler.  You must assign a Status for every employee added to the list of employees.

n        The password entered in the Employee setup allows them to logon to ADVANTAGE Salon Software and Spa Software.  An additional password is used for the Point of Sale functions.  To setup POS Operators use the Setup Operators option under Point of Sale Setup options.  Please note that if you do not setup up an Employee as a POS Operator, he or she will not have access to the Point of Sale.  Remember that the password in this Employee screen is for Logging On to Advantage and is different from the password in the Point of Sale.

n        If you want this employee to show up in the Appointment Book as a service provider, make sure to select Yes for the prompt of Scheduler Yes or No.

n        If this employee is to be included in the Appointment Book make sure you select Yes next to the days they will work.

n        The Service Commission and the Inventory Commission amounts are percentages you want to pay an employee for providing the service or for the sale of an inventory item.  You can also enter an Hourly Rate for hourly employees.

n        Select the EDIT SERVICES button.  You will get a screen with two windows: the top pane is labeled – Selected Services, the bottom pane is labeled – Available Services.  The Selected Services pane (top) displays a list of services that the employee can perform.  The Available Services pane (bottom) displays a list of all services provided by your salon/spa.  For each employee, select from the Available Services window, the services he or she provides.  You may highlight more than one service during the selection.  Then click on the Select Service(s) button.  The Selected Services window should show the employee’s services.  You may edit a service’s price, length of time, or, commission for each individual employee at any time.  This gives the capability to provide different pricing for the same service based on the stylist performing the service.

Click OK in the Employee Services window to save the changes.
