Client retention report allows you to check how many of your new customers decide to rebook with your business. The higher the retention rate, the better. You can also check the number of customers who had their first appointment with a given employee and then rebooked with the same employee. A high value indicates high service standards and customer satisfaction level.
Tip: You can also check the customers' satisfaction level and employee performance with the customer reviews features, which allow your clients to rate their service experience. You can enable the customer reviews feature in settings > reviews.
