Let’s say you want to create or track special discounts, or you treat clients on a sliding scale and you want Jane to remember their discount. In Jane, we call these Adjustments. Here’s how you can use them:
- Creating an Adjustment or Price Discount
- Applying the Adjustment or Price Discount to an Invoice
- Editing an Adjustment or Price Discount for a Specific Appointment
- Tracking Adjustments or Price Discounts with Jane Reports
Create an Adjustment
To create a new type of Adjustment, head over to your Settings tab and choose Adjustments from the list on the left.
Click New Adjustment at the top right and then begin by labelling your new adjustment.
Override will completely replace the price of the treatment with whatever you choose as the override amount. So if you set a $25 override on a $125 treatment, the visit will now be $25.
Percent Discount will reduce the cost by whatever percentage you enter. So a 10% discount will drop a $100 visit to $90 and a $50 visit to $45.
Dollar Discount will reduce the cost by whatever dollar amount you enter. So a $20 discount will drop a $100 visit to $80 and a $50 visit to $30.
Provider of Discount
Clinic & Staff Member will reduce the price of this visit on the compensation report to the adjusted value. So if a $100 visit is reduced to $50 then the staff member will be compensated for $50.
Clinic Only will not reduce the price of this visit on the compensation report to the adjusted value. So if a $100 visit is reduced to $50 then the staff member will be compensated for the full $100 as if the full amount had been charged.
Applying the Adjustment or Price Discount to an Invoice
From the Schedule
To apply the adjustment or price discount from the main Schedule, open the Appointment Panel by clicking on the appointment. Scroll down to the Billing Info area and open it up.
Click on the blue Adjustments button
Pro-tip💡: If you don’t remember the name of the adjustment or discount, you can hit the spacebar on your keyboard and Jane will populate a list of all the discounts and adjustments created under the clinic-wide settings.
If you hit the Adjustment + button, you’ll get a search bar that you can use to find and select the Adjustment you’d like to provide.
Note All Adjustments are applied to the Pre-Insured amount. So if you are discounting a service, this discount will be applied to the price of the visit as a whole and then the insurer portion will be calculated. This is to ensure that insured percentages are being honoured.
From the Patient Profile
If the invoice is already created, you can add an adjustment or price discount by heading over to the Patient or Client’s profile, and then on the Billing tab within the profile. Jane will display a list of all the invoices created for them.
You’ll want to click on the word View to the far right of the desired invoice line:
From there, scroll down to the Adjustments section and type in the name of the adjustment or price discount:
Default Adjustments and Price Adjusttments
Once your Adjustments and/or Price Discounts have been set up, you can assign it as a default to an existing patient profile. This way, the Adjustment is automatically applied to all upcoming appointments and purchases for this patient. This nifty feature automates a sometimes tedious task, saving your team some time from having to manually edit those invoices to give them a recurring discount.
Like a load off, right? 😌
To add a default Adjustment, head over to the Patients or Clients tab in the top menu, and then click the patient’s name from the left side. With their profile opened up, you’ll see a Default Adjustment heading on the lower right side.
Click +Add and choose the appropriate Adjustment from the list.
The Adjustment will then appear in the Billing Info section of the patient’s future appointments and generate those discounted invoices automatically.
Editing an Adjustment for a Specific Appointment
If you need to remove the Adjustment from a specific appointment, you can do so using the blue X next to the Adjustment name in the Billing Info section. Removing it from a single appointment will not affect future appointments if you have a default Adjustment set up for a patient.
At any point, you can also override the discount to a different amount: Once the Adjustment is applied to the appointment, you can click directly on the name of the Adjustment to open up an Edit window.
From here, you can change the type of Adjustment, the Value, and the Provider.
Find the Adjustment report in your Reports tab.
You can report on Adjustments by location, staff member and date range.

Frequently Asked Questions
The provider of the discount was set to the wrong method by mistake, how do I change it?
If you need to modify how your adjustments are set up, you can do so under the Adjustments area in Settings, where we had originally set it up.
It’s worth noting that if you make a change to an adjustment from this area, this change will apply to any time this adjustment is added moving forward – but Jane has safeguards to protect previously generated invoices and as such, existing invoices will not be affected.
💡Pro Tip: If you need an updated Adjustment to be reflected on a previously generated invoice, you can remove the adjustment by clicking the “x” on the purchase and re-add it.
Are default price Adjustments applied to Group Appointments?
Yes, under one condition. If the Primary Client has a default price Adjustment on their profile (for example, a sliding scale arrangement), then that Adjustment will be applied to the cost of their Group Appointment. Price Adjustments on Secondary Clients’ profiles will not be applied to Group Appointments.
