In many larger pet sitting businesses, employed administrative and scheduling staff are given access to fewer functions in Pet Sitter Plus than their more senior colleagues or the business owner.

It is important therefore that these junior staff are not able to adjust their own access permissions, potentially giving themselves greater access to the system.

It is also important that these same people are not able to create additional administrative logins and potentially even lock business owners out of the system.

In release 5.8 it is now possible to lock users out of the part of the program that creates and adjusts admin user rights which (effectively) creates a junior administrator role in Pet Sitter Plus.

Such users ARE ABLE to create login information for pet sitters (who themselves have limited access) but ARE NOT ABLE to create login information for administrative users or adjust the access rights for administrative users.


It is now possible to grant access to ADD STAFF LOGIN andADD COMPANY ADMINISTRATOR functions independently of one another.


This means you can either:

  • Block access to all USER MANAGEMENT functionality such that a given user is unable to create login information for anyone. Typically a new starter in a junior admin role.

  • Grant access to ADD STAFF LOGIN but revoke access toADD COMPANY ADMINISTRATOR such that a given user can create pet sitter logins (who themselves have limited access) but cannot create administrator logins (who have global access). Typically a more trusted junior admin role.

  • Grant access to both ADD STAFF LOGIN and ADD COMPANY ADMINISTRATOR. Typically a trusted senior admin role or business owner.
