Some of us run businesses that involve shipping or delivery of products (rentals in my case). There are a number of areas in which Checkfront could be improved to make these procedures far easier:
- In the customer profile, it would be helpful to have more than a single address. I regularly need to use a different address as a delivery location while still keeping the same profile address as a billing address.
- Bookings that require a staff member (such as a delivery/crew person) have no way to assign those staff to the booking or manage otherwise staff as a resource. This problem should be resolved with the forthcoming "Resource Management" functionality whenever that gets finished.
- There's no way to add delivery/mileage/shipping charges without creating them as an inventory item. Using an inventory item for delivery is a clunky workaround and messes with the reports because it makes it appear I have far more "Items" booked than I actually do. For example, if I charge someone for 50 "delivery miles," the reports show an additional 50 items booked on that day. Ideally, I'd like to just add a custom shipping/delivery field that appears on the invoice after the subtotal.
