When you add appointments in your appointment book in Versum, their status is set to pending. Once the customer's visit is over, or if the customer has not come, you need to check out the appointment or mark it as cancelled, respectively. Owing to that, the appointment will be accurately taken into account in statistics as well as customer and staff appointment history.
Note: To get instructions on how to mark an appointment as cancelled (no-show), please go to How to set the appointment status to "cancelled"
