Control for online job requests within "X" hours of the service start time.....
Many pet sitting businesses operate different policies when it comes to the online service ordering. Some pet services businesses prefer to receive bookings online only when a few days notice has been provided. Others would prefer to receive online bookings on the day the service is due to start (same day booking).
Prior to release version 5,0, Pet Sitter Plus had a single setting of 24 hours which was not user definable. This meant that the system would prevent any order for service that was made less than 24 hours prior to the first service start time from being processed by the client. However, new in release version 5.0, it is now possible for the pet sitting business owner to define the number of hours within which the system will accept an online order for service.
The new control is located in ADMIN > SETTINGS > Client Portal Settings and is labelled "Prevent Job Requests within (Hours)".
Setting the value of "Prevent Job Requests within (Hours)" to "3" will mean clients can book services no later than 3 hours prior to the services start time of the first service.
Setting the value of "Prevent Job Requests within (Hours)" to "72" will mean clients can book services no later than 72 hours prior to the services start time of the first service.
