I am setting up a loyalty card system where every plastic card printed has a unique customer barcode on it.
To hack this functionality into the current Loyverse system, we are putting the customer's unique loyalty card barcode number after their name (eg - John Smith 476387358854) . When the customer sign ups, we enter their name and then immediately scan the card that we are giving to them so the barcode number appears behind their name.
We can then quickly add the customer to future orders by scanning their loyalty card barcode into the customer search field.
I have tested the above and it works, but it's a bit of a dodgy workaround. It would be very nice to have a dedicated field for this so you can search for your customers by name, phone number, or their barcode number and keep these details as separate fields.
Is there any chance you could add a new searchable field to the customer database for storing a unique customer number (eg for a loyalty card barcode) ?
I am sure many other uses would appreciate and make use of this feature too as it's a pretty common loyalty method.
The name + number workaround works in the meanwhile if anyone else wants to implement it right now 😉
