Administrator : Service : Durations

Each type of Service must have one or more Durations.

This is an Essentials Check List item.

An Administrator Login is required.


The list at the top of the area shows all Durations for the currently selected Service type that have already been entered for your business. As new items are created, they are added to the list. As old items are deleted they are removed from the list.

A type of Service must be selected in the lefthand list under Service Detail. The Duration operations apply to the currently selected Service type.
