Customer Questions allow you to have additional input fields when a customer or staff member adds a customer to Qudini. These can be used to help staff in-store by obtaining more information from the customer before an appointment or before they reach the top of the queue.
For example, if Qudini was being used in a doctor’s consultation to manage queues and appointments, you may need to know if it is the patient’s first time at your clinic prior to them being seen by a doctor. Therefore you could add a Customer Question to your online booking interface asking the customer to answer Yes or No to the question about whether this is their first visit.
