Setting "Capacity" for Staff.


Capacity is a setting found on the staff record which controls whether or not a staff member will appear in the Planner. To set the value of Capacity do the following;


Navigate to ADMIN > STAFF then click on the staff member's record you wish to edit. Then choose SETTINGS from the menu on the left.


  • Set the value of "Capacity" and click "Update"


  • Set the value of "Capacity" to 0 if the staff member should NOT appear in the planner. 

  • Set the value of Capacity to 1 if the staff member provides boarding services and can board a maximum of 1 dog. 

  • Set Capacity to 2 or more if the staff member has "Capacity" to board 2 or more dogs.

  • Set the Capacity to 1 if the staff member provides overnight services. The value of capacity will never be more than 1 for overnights as staff can only provide an overnight service for one house at a time.


Understanding The Planner - Example: Boarding Services


The Planner can also be used to monitor available resources and bookings for Boarding services. 


  • The "Cap" column indicates "Capacity",

  • If the Planner is being used to monitor boarding services, the "Capacity" is set to the maximum number of dogs that any given pet sitter can accommodate on any given day.

  • Note that "Capacity" is only for indication purposes and does not prevent additional bookings from being processed when a pet sitter is oversubscribed.


A number indicates one or more bookings

  • A number in any date column indicates that there are one or more bookings allocated to a pet sitter on any given day.

  • When the Planner is being used to monitor "Boarding" services, the indicated number also represents the total number of dogs boarding for the day.

  • Blank space indicates that the staff member is available but not booked.
