When you first sign up for a Mangomint account, your account is in Demo mode. Demo mode adds sample data to your account so you can try out Mangomint’s features in a test environment. A Demo label is added next to any sample data.
When you're ready, you can turn off Demo mode from the Get Started page in your account. Turning Demo mode off does not automatically begin a paid subscription.
When Demo mode is turned off:
Data with a Demo label is deleted.
Appointments are deleted. It is important to turn off Demo mode before transferring any appointments from a previous booking software into Mangomint.
If you add the following new information to Mangomint in Demo mode, the information will remain in the system after Demo mode is turned off:

Importing your data
If you are transferring to Mangomint from a previous booking software, our team is happy to import your data. For most booking systems, we can import the following:
Clients (including contact details): It takes about 24 hours for our engineers to import your clients once we receive all your client information.
Products, inventory, and gift cards: We will import your products, inventory, and gift cards a few days before your launch date to ensure you have more accurate stock levels and gift card balances.
Depending on your previous booking software, we may or may not be able to import client notes, formulas, and histories such as previous appointments or previous sales. Your Onboarding Manager will discuss this with you during your onboarding session.
Note: For most booking systems, we cannot transfer future appointments into Mangomint. You will need to transfer them as part of your onboarding process.
Deciding on a launch date
Your launch date is the date you will start to use Mangomint as your day-to-day software and turn off your previous booking software (if you have one). Picking a launch date will help you determine which future appointments from your previous booking software you will need to transfer into Mangomint. You only need to transfer future appointments from your launch date onward into Mangomint.
Here are some things to keep in mind when deciding on a launch date:
Most businesses pick a launch date somewhere between 1-2 weeks after they begin their onboarding process.
A good launch day is usually a day after your business was closed. If your business is open every day of the week, consider choosing one of your slower days as your launch day.
Transferring future appointments
If you are transferring to Mangomint from a previous booking software, you will need to manually transfer future appointments (only from your launch date onward) into Mangomint.
If you are importing your client list into Mangomint, please wait until we have finished importing clients before transferring appointments.
During the transfer process, keep the appointments in both your previous software and Mangomint up to date. Any change to a future appointment (such as rescheduling or cancellation) should be made in both systems.
Disabling automated messages
To transfer future appointments, begin by turning off your automated messages in Mangomint so that your clients don’t receive notifications as you work through the transfer process. To do this, go to Settings > Automated Messages > Appointment Booked. Select the gear icon next to the default automated email message.
Disable the Send for appointments booked by a staff member toggle. You will re-enable this toggle closer to your launch date.
You can now begin transferring your appointments from your previous software. Learn more about creating appointments.
Starting your subscription
If you are the Billing user for your account, you can manage your Mangomint subscription by selecting Subscription from your profile menu. Once you’ve started your subscription, you can use your subscription page to change your plan, modify your plan add-ons, and update your billing credit card. Visit our website to compare Mangomint plans.
Once you’ve set up your account, learn the Mangomint basics, including how to create and check out appointments.
