A series of controls that will help you to customize your schedule for the requirements of your specific business.

Daily Email Of Staff Schedules

You can email your staff (automatically overnight) with a copy of their schedule. This setting controls how many days into the future that you want the schedule to cover, (options are 1-7 days). You can also optionally set it to "0" which stops schedules being emailed to staff.

To change this setting:
  • Navigate to: Admin > Settings > Schedule Settings > Options > Daily Email of Staff Schedule For Next.
  • Set the value of "Daily Email Of Staff Schedules For Next" as required.



Sort Schedule

Choose to sort your schedule by either "Staff by time" where all services are grouped by staff member and then for each staff member the services are further sorted in time order, or sort it by "Time" where all services are sorted in time order, irrespective of which sitter the service is scheduled to.

To change this setting
  • Navigate to: Admin > Settings > Schedule Settings > Options > Sort Schedule By
  • Set the value of "Sort Schule By" as required.



Show Time Default

The "Show Time" function enables administrators and schedulers to either “show the time” when a service is scheduled to start or ”not show the time” as required. The Show Time Default function enables this option to be defaulted as "Yes" or "No" depending on whether you routinely show the time or not.

To change this setting
  • Navigate to: Admin > Settings > Schedule Settings > Options > Show Time Default
  • Set the value of "Show Time Default" as required.



Default Service Detail in the Schedule

The "Detail" function is a + / - control in the top right hand corner of your schedule which allows you to set the level of detail you wish to see in the schedule. 

The "Default Service Detail" function provides administrators with a way to set a "default" level of detail for when users access the schedule (List View / Column View or Compact View) for the first time. 

To change this setting
  • Navigate to: Admin > Settings > Schedule Settings > Options > Default Service Detail
  • Set the value of "Default Service Detail" as required.



Display Client and/or Pet Name in Schedule

You can choose how your client name is displayed in your Schedule (List, Column and Compact View). Some people prefer to use the client name, some the pet name and others prefer to see both.

These options are:
  • "Client Name and Ref” displays both the client first and last name, and the client reference (which is usually contains the pets names).
  • “Client Ref” displays the client reference only. As most Pet Sitter Plus users store the pet names in the client reference field (sometimes referred to as “schedule ref”) choosing this option means that ONLY the pet name(s) will be displayed in the schedule.
  • “Client Name” displays the client name only, with no pet name.

To change this setting
Navigate to: Admin > Settings > Schedule Settings > Options > Display Client in Schedule
Set the value of "Display Client in Schedule" as required.
