3.7.1 Adding a new client
On the Client Page, you can Add a New Client but in order to do this, you must have “View All Company Details” (Superuser mode) switched to ON at the top right of the screen in Admin Login. Once you have created a Client, you can assign all their details, give them booking/edit delete permissions, assign certain Crew Members that can work for those clients. Clients also have the ability to Login to the Personnel Manager with their own Access where they can View Upcoming Shifts, Make Bookings (optional).
Click “Add a New Client Record”: Fill out the client details as desired.
Short Name: Short name is the name that will appear in all outgoing SMS’s (or email) sent to crew pointing out who the client is for that specific shift. This is also the “username” for clients when they log in online to make bookings to view them. See “Client Log in” for more information.
TIP: If no “password” is entered, PM assigns the “Short Name” as the password as well when record is saved.
Enable Online Client Booking: When enabled this client will be able to make bookings online. If not enabled, client will still be able to log in to “Client’s Page” but “Make a Booking” button will not appear (See “Client Log in” for more information).
Default Instructions, Client Payment Terms for Invoices: Each time an invoice is sent to clients PM includes a default message which looks like the following:

Any contact that has a “Green Envelope with check sign” would be in the invoice loop, which means their names will automatically be selected by PM before sending the invoice (See Sending Invoices under “Ops Home Page” for more info).
Add Client Booking Emails: Using this link new contact persons can be added to client records. Contact types are “Accounts” (usually to send invoices), booking person (booking person details which will appear on the “Online Booking Form” as one of the selectable booking persons) or Admin CC.
