This guide will give you an overview of steps to take in order to have your Operate fully configured for the best experience:
Getting started - Setup Checklist
When you first log into Operate, we will take you through a Setup Checklist, which shows you some of the basic information that the system needs in order for you to be able to start adding clients, members, rooms (products) and other details.
You can access the Checklist from the navigation bar at the top of the screen. If you have permanently hidden the Checklist and want to bring it back, navigate to Settings > General / Getting started > Advanced features
Further configure your Organization
This is a key section to complete, as it represents the core of your system information. Here is where you decide your client types, the currencies and exchange rates you work with or the tax rates that apply to your business.

Configure System Settings
