Using Schedule Templates

Image
Schedule templates are one of the more powerful features in ZenShows when it comes to managing your events.


One thing I should try to clarify as long as we are talking about templates is absolute vs relative times.  For some retailers we try to keep their open hours up to date in ZenShows.  If a location has hours of operation that you save a template from then that template can be saved as a "relative" schedule.  What this means is that the start and end times for the schedule are saved relative to open/close hours for that location.  And then when you load the template to a new location we use that locations open/close hours as the basis.

An example will help.

Keep Track of your Forms

As more and more clients are using our forms to get summaries, contracts with staffers, collect images, etc it becomes more and more of an effort to insure compliance.

We have installed a new report for all Vendors and Agencies that will keep track of all your outgoing forms and allow you to follow up on those that have not been completed.

Just select the form you are after, what date range you are looking for (including upcoming events) and sort.

As with all reports, you can customize the report and have it automatically sent to you on whatever schedule you choose.  We recommend setting it up so that you look at all incomplete forms for events starting next week and have that emailed to you every monday or so. 

Don't forget, we can also collect signatures on documents!
