Enable Vaccination Flags

Modified on Wed, 07 Dec 2022 at 10:02 PM

The Vaccination Flag appears on the Service Request tab when clients use their Client Portal to request services online.


This is useful to identify the status of a client's pet vaccinations and to highlight if one of these has expired or is unvaccinated. The vaccination flag icon will be displayed in red if one of these conditions is applicable.


Note: Vaccination Flags can also be set as Service Item Specific. See Enable or Disable Vaccination Flags for Service Items.

Types of vaccination flags in Dog walking Software

The Vaccination flag is indicated on a Service Request and is relevant to the Pet Types set for each Service Item. The Vaccination Flag function checks the service item's "Restrict to Pet Type" entries and cross references this with the "Pet Type" for the Client's registered Pet. In doing so, the vaccination status is checked for only the relevant Pet Types making the Vaccination Flag more accurate.

 

Case Use 1 - Client Requesting a Dog Walk

 

If a client has a dog and a cat registered with you and sends in a Service Request for a Dog Walk, the Vaccination Flag function will only indicate the vaccination status of the dog.

 

Case Use 2 - Client Requesting a Home Visit

 

If a client has a dog and cats registered with you and sends in a Service Request for a Home Visit, which involves ALL of the pets in the household, the Vaccination Flag function will check the vaccination status of all the Pets and show a vaccination flag for each one.
