🔥 Week 4 Updates 🔥
New option to include the account logo on all emails sent through Spark 📧
With this new option you will be able to choose whether you want to automatically include your logo on all of the emails sent through Spark or not no matter whether they're sent through an automation, a contact's profile, a mass action on a report, etc. You will be able to find this new option by going to your left side menu, Settings>General Settings, it will be the last checkbox on the right side of the page.
"Search Only Member" option added to the Spark Kiosk app 📱
With this new function on the app you will be able to control whether you want your trial's names appear on the kiosk app or if you want them to be hidden. By turning this new option on, you will be able to make it where when your active students enter their name on the Kiosk app to check in, they will no longer have to scroll through a potentially long list of trials to find their profile making it much quicker and easier for them to check in for class. You will be able to find this new option by going to the settings page o the Spark Kiosk app and turning this option on:
Fixed an error page on checkout pages when a purchase item is not properly set up with a membership.

🔥 Week 3 Updates 🔥
Credit Card Surcharge Column on the All Memberships Report 📄
We have added a great new column and drop down on the All Memberships report which will now allow you to not only filter the report based on contacts that have the credit card surcharge function enabled or disabled on their membership but will also include a new column which will show you each individual membership that has it enabled or disabled as well so you could accurately keep track of which contacts are being charged to surcharge and who is not.
Fixed an issue with an error message appearing when uploading a profile picture on a contact's profile.
Adjusted the automation groups to now include character length validation.

🔥 Week 2 Updates 🔥
Ability to send SMS messages for tuition payment declines and expiring credit cards 💬
With this new feature you will now be able to build your own payment decline and expiring credit card SMS message template which will be sent out upon either of those actions happening. This could work as en extension of your payment decline and expiring credit card emails you may already have set up which will provide you with a much higher chance of your students viewing the message and taking action whether it be updating their payment method on file or simply paying the fees they owe. You could also use it as a standalone message that could be sent out without the email needing to be sent as well in case you don't want to be sending your students the same message twice on two different platforms. You will be able to find these SMS message template boxes by going to your left side menu, Settings>Memberships, clicking on the 'Settings' tab at the top of the page, and scrolling towards the bottom to where you will find the SMS fields under each of your email templates.
New option to be able to display the expired/inactive checkout pages on the Member App settings page
You will now be able to view your inactive and/or your expired checkout pages on the Member App checkout pages tab. This will take out the guess work of where certain checkout pages are on the list and why they are highlighted by a red border on the page. The red border around checkout pages signifies that the checkout page is either inactive or expired and not available for purchase on the app.
Additional interactive contact information for the Lead & Trial Maximizer 📑
We have added each prospect's contact information directly underneath their names on the page which will make it much easier to send out a quick message or email to a prospect without needing to perform multiple actions to do so.
🔥 Week 1 Updates 🔥
New options for the "How many hours before do we stop allowing to book?" setting for the Online Scheduler🔥
We have been able to add more options to the "How many hours before do we stop allowing to book" setting in the calendar settings which will now allow you to prevent contacts from booking appointments before a certain amount of days. This will be perfect if you offer birthday parties and/or other events in your location that you may want to give yourself more time to set up for. You will be able to find this new option by going to your calendar settings and editing the appointment type of your choice. You will be able to prevent contacts from booking an appointment up to 15 days before the desired appointment date.
New options available when cancelling a membership ⚡
Three new options have been added to the cancel membership option on a student's profile which will now allow you to: remove all of the tags that the student has on their profile, remove the student from all of the rosters they are currently assigned to, and remove all of the student's future calendar appointments this way you or your staff members could have all those actions happen as soon as the membership is cancelled an not have to spend time performing these actions manually
Ability to schedule payments on existing unpaid or partially unpaid invoices 💸
We have now added the option to schedule out payments on existing invoices that still have an outstanding balance that is still yet to have been paid. To perform this action you will simply need to open the invoice you want to schedule the payments for, click on the green 'Add Scheduled Payment' button, enter in the amount to charge, select the card you want to use for the payment, and lastly, click on the 'save' button. Please bear in mind that you will want to select a date in the future to schedule the payment otherwise if you select the current day, the system may not run the payment; For those cases you will want to charge the payment like regular.
