What are subscriptions?
A subscription is a service which is completed over a defined time frame. For instance 25 Min Weekday Walk subscriptions which is one service from Monday to Friday of the week. In DoTimely the subscriptions are based on monthly calendar but you can define your own dates also.
Subscriptions can only be added by the business and cannot be purchased by the customer. They are different in DoTimely from packages because the count is not defined before hand but created dynamically based on the time period selected for the subscription. Also for a subscription the appointments are created on the calendar immediately.
How do Subscriptions work?
In DoTimely an admin can add a subscription for the customer account by defining the start and end dates of the subscription and selecting a subscription. An Invoice for that subscription in Draft mode is created and all the services are added to that invoice.
If you select Auto Renew On than at the expiration of the subscription another one will be purchased for the next month.
