< Understanding the Planner < Example: Boarding Services

Boarding services are where the pet stays at the pet sitter's home overnight and is returned at the end of their stay. To monitor this in the Planner you should have set the resource cost for the service item plus the capacity for the staff member. See Setting up the Planner and Setting Capacity for Staff for more information.

ON DESKTOP:

Navigate to Scheduler > Schedule > Planner
STEP 1

 

How Does a Boarding Service display in the Planner?

By default, the planner displays the current month. You can move between months by using the forward and back arrows next to the month.

Capacity

  • The "Cap" column indicates "Capacity".

  • If the Planner is being used to monitor boarding services, the "Capacity" is set to the maximum number of dogs that any given pet sitter can accommodate on any given day.

  • Note that "Capacity" is only for indication purposes and does not prevent additional bookings from being processed when a pet sitter is oversubscribed.

STEP 2

Planner quantity indicators:

  • A number in any date column indicates that there are one or more bookings allocated to a pet sitter on any given day.

  • When the Planner is being used to monitor "Boarding" services, the indicated number also represents the total number of dogs boarding for the day.

  • Blank space indicates that the staff member is available but not booked.

  • Clicking on any of the numbers will display the booking detail below the planner.
