Set Up Step 2: Disciplines

Next, you’ll want to set up your discipline(s). This is where you let Jane know your area of practice.

The Role of Disciplines in Jane

Disciplines are used to group your staff throughout your account. The online booking site is organized by discipline, the staff columns in the main schedule can be grouped by discipline, and most of the reporting throughout Jane can be filtered by discipline.

Keeping that in mind, disciplines in Jane don’t always need to be a literal medical discipline and you can use them in a way that makes the most sense for you and your practice.

For instance, let’s say you run a medical aesthetics clinic. Although “Medical Aesthetics” could be a discipline you use to set up your account, perhaps you would rather make multiple disciplines for the different categories of medical aesthetics instead.

This way you could categorize your staff members into more specific categories depending on the types of services they offer and also organize your online booking site in a way that is more digestible to your clients.

Note: After setting up your Disciplines, you’ll need to let Jane know which staff members offer this type of therapy. You can assign staff members to a Discipline in the “Staff” tab. We will cover the steps to assigning staff members to a Discipline category in Set Up Step 4.
