<      Planner < Setting up the Planner

When setting up your Pet Sitter Plus system, it is possible to monitor a particular type of service in the Planner, usually overnights (where staff stay in the client's home overnight) or boarding (where the pets stay in the pet sitter's home overnight).

 

To monitor a service in the Planner, the value of “Resource Cost” (for the service you want to monitor) must be greater than 0. Resource cost is a setting on the service item itself. 

ON DESKTOP:

Navigate to Admin > Services > click on the service item > Advanced
STEP 1

    • Set resource cost to 2 when you want to monitor a boarding service for 2 dogs.

    • Set resource cost to 1 when you want to monitor an overnight service. Even if the client has more than 1 pet you are caring for on an overnight, the resource cost covers the number of homes you are staying at, which can only be 1.
