Once the owner and manager of the business have determined how they plan to use the system, they would train their staff on the areas they would be using via the practice database.
When STX Support takes a back up of your database (scheduled 1-2 days before your Launch Day), any appointments, tickets or changes made after the backup will not be included in the conversion. Businesses either do not allow anyone to use the software or they plan to re-enter those changes on launch day.
Online Booking should be shut off no later than at the time of data retrieval.
