Changing the Schedule Color for a Service Item

Modified on Mon, 24 Oct, 2022 at 3:39 PM

To help to quickly differentiate between services, eg. walking, visits, boarding, daycare, etc, services can be given different colors in the schedule.

What is a service item?

A Service Item is a description and price for a service you provide, such as dog walk, pet sit, boarding, overnight, dog training, etc. Service items create your Schedule, Service Orders, and Invoices. A Service Item that is set for a time and date is assigned to a staff member to create the schedule.

Tip: You could choose to give groups of services a particular color, eg. blue for walking, green for visits etc. Or you could give teams or an area a color.

How Do I Set a Color for a Service Item?

Step 1

  • Click on the service item to edit.

What is a hexadecimal color?
  • Hexadecimal colors start with a hashtag # followed by 6 digits and/or letters
