To log into Pet Sitter Plus, all staff need to have a staff account. They can set up their password for the first time, and after that, they can login to view their services for the day, to mark services as acknowledged/completed, and to send feedback to clients. They will be able to login and view the staff dashboard on a desktop PC or log in on their mobile phone.

Step 1: How do I set Staff Permissions for access to Pet Sitter Plus?

Navigation: Admin > Staff > Permissions > Staff Permissions

Scenario: Tammy needs Janet to be able to log in to the software so she can check her schedule for the day. Janet doesn't need any extra permissions to schedule work for others, or admin access.

First set staff permissions under "What can this staff see?"

1. Under "Can See Client Information," choose "Only when staff is assigned the service."
2. Switch ON the option for "Can See Staff Time Off Summary." Jan will be able to see the whole company time off planner.

Next set staff permissions under "What can this staff do?"

3. Switch ON the option for "Can Be Scheduled." Jan will appear in the sitter dropdown for assigning services.
4. Switch ON the option for "Can Assign Keys." Jan will be able to assign a key to another sitter if she gives the key to another staff.
5. Switch ON the option for "Can Request Time Off." Jan will be able to ask for time off.
