New features and updates for January are here! Check out these awesome new features that we have added from the awesome suggestions you have been making to help improve Spark!

πŸ”₯ Week 4 Updates πŸ”₯

NEW Connected Contact Appointments field on Contact Profiles

With this new addition you will be able to much more easily see each connected family member's appointments through one singular family member's profile so instead of having to open multiple tabs/profiles to see who has booked an appointment in a family and who hasn't. You will be able to find all of those appointments in one place. This new field will appear right underneath the 'Appointments' tab on a contact's profile.

Bug Fixes/Adjustments:

  • Fixed an issue with students being added to full rosters when they buy a purchase item via a checkout page that is connected to a roster(s).
