Step 1: How do I Add a Staff Record?

Tammy has a sitter called Janet Price, who she wants to help her with scheduling and invoicing as well as dog walking. Jan is also on a higher compensation rate than the other sitters. Tammy needs to add her to Pet Sitter Plus.


1. Click the "+ New Staff" button.

2. Type the First Name "Janet" and the Last Name "Price". Click "Create Staff".

We will enter a "DiaryRef - Staff Short name (Appears in Schedule)" for Janet. As this setting governs how their name will appear in the schedule it should be simple and easy to identify them. This can be the name they are known by if that makes it easier.


3. Type Janet's name into the DiaryRef  "Jan"


4. Continue entering the following into Janet's staff record:


  • Home Phone: "904 123 4567"

  • Work Mobile: "904 987 6543"

  • Work Email: ""

  • Personal Email: ""

  • Preferred Contact: Choose "Any"

  • Email Schedule (sent to work email): toggle the switch to "ON" (this will ensure Jan is emailed her work for the next day)

  • Address: "12200 Main St N, Jacksonville, FL 32218"


Click "Update" to save.

Next, enter an "Emergency Contact" for Janet.


5. Click the "Emergency Contacts" option in the sub menu on the left.


Enter the following into the first contact:

  • First Name: "Steve"

  • Last Name: "Price"

  • Relationship to Staff: Choose "Husband" from the dropdown.

  • Email: ""

  • Cell Phone: "904 586 5454"


Click "Update" to save.

We will check and set the "Location" map for Janet. This is a useful skill for using on your client records.


6. Click the "Location" option in the sub menu on the left. Check that her address is displaying in the field above the map area. Click the "Search" button to view Janet's home location on the map.


Click "Update" to save.

We will add a setting to ensure Janet is paid compensation at the "Pay Level 2" rate.


7. Click the "Settings" option in the sub menu on the left.


On the dropdown for "Staff Type" choose "Pay Level 2".


Click "Update" to save.
