Pet Sitter Plus should be pre-configured with a timezone, time and date format to suit the location of your business. However, you may wish to reset these.


In this section, you will learn how to edit the time and date settings in your software.


Step 1: How do I Change the Timezone in Pet Sitter Plus?

1. Click "Date & Time Formats" from the sub menu on the left.

2. Either choose your timezone from the dropdown by "Time Zone" to select your timezone, or click "Set timezone based on your current location".

Step 2: How do I Change how the Time & Date Displays in Pet Sitter Plus?

Tammy's software is pre-configured to show am and pm times, but she prefers to confirm job times using the 24-hour clock (Military time). She also prefers to display the year as just "17" rather than "2017".


3. Choose "24-hour format" from the dropdown by "Time Format" to change your time settings to the 24-hour clock (Military Time), so "1.00pm" now displays as "13:00".


4. Choose "mm/dd/yy" from the dropdown by "Date Format" to change your date settings so "09/25/2017" now displays as "09/25/17".

If you look at the service order you created for Linda Macauley, you will see the original date & time settings displaying, eg. "09/04/2017" and the time as "2:00pm-4:00pm".

With the changes, you will see the date & time settings displaying in their new format, eg. "09/04/17" and the time as "14:00-16:00".

Congratulations! You have completed this stage.
