Navigation Scheduler > Schedule > Planner

The Planner enables administrators to monitor the availability of staff that provide a particular type of service within the business. Typically the staff being monitored are providing either boarding or overnight services. The planner has been designed to show:

  • Periods when pet sitters are available to provide additional boarding or overnight services.

  • Periods when pet sitters are full or oversubscribed.

  • Periods when pet sitters are not working due to illness, vacation, holiday etc.

  • Details of overnight bookings including start and end dates.

See Time Off for further information.

Setting up the Planner >

To monitor a service in the Planner, the value of “Resource Cost” (for the service you want to monitor) must be set up  on the service item first. 

Setting Capacity for Staff >

The Capacity setting controls whether or not a staff member will appear in the Planner so is essential if you wish to use this function.

Understanding the Planner >
