Import your cliniko data to Splose

1. Log in to your workspace, go to Settings, then Import and click + Import and select cliniko.

3. Complete the process of mapping locations, practitioners and services. It is critical that you create all of your practitioners and locations prior to completing this step. If you have not added these, close the import and start over.

The time to complete the import is based on the amount of data you have. You can continue setting up your workspace while the import is in progress. We'll send you an email when your import is complete.

Debtor management

If you are a Xero user and your debtors are in Xero, we recommend keeping them there and managing them using the Aged Receivables report. If your debtors exist in cliniko we recommend creating the debtors in Splose along with the outstanding balance. Create an invoice and add a "Custom" invoice item line and the amount. You can enter the issue date and due date, then email follow-ups right using email templates. Continue debtor management using the Aged Debtors report in Splose.
