Pet Sitter Plus has a powerful online service ordering component that enables clients to book pet sitting services from any device. This important functionality forms part of the Client Portal.
The job request processing function is first and foremost a "holding place" where requested services can be viewed, edited, added to and made subject to an approval "workflow" prior to scheduling.
When a service is booked via the Client Portal, it is seldom the case that you would want that service to be added directly to your live schedule, so the job request processing function allows you to ensure the order is correct and that you are available to provide those services, prior to accepting and scheduling the work. At this point you can also decline the request if your sitter is unavailable or you simply do not wish to provide the services.
To access the job request processing queue click DIARY & SCHEDULING > JOB REQUESTS from the main menu.
Alternatively click "X clients with outstanding job requests" from the HOME screen.
Or click on the red Job Requests box to access the list of job requests that are awaiting processing.
The red icon indicates the number of online service requests that need to be processed.
All of the columns can be sorted so you can view the Job Requests by order of preference.
How do I sort the columns into order?
Click on the yellow bar above the column you wish to re-order, eg.
Click on "Client (Diary Ref)" and the list will be re-sorted into alphabetical order
Click on "Start Date" to view the list in date order
