How Do I Set Capacity for Staff Members?

Modified on Sun, 02 Oct 2022 at 04:39 PM

Capacity controls if a staff member appears in the Planner and sets how many of a service that staff can accept. To display a Staff member on the Planner, the Staff's "Capacity" needs to be a number greater than 0.

More About the Planner

The Planner displays capacity and current scheduled services for a particular type of service, such as boarding, overnight and daycare services. The Planner is also helpful to identify which sitters provide services and to locate which sitter is available to accept a service, indicated by no work or work below capacity on their Planner.

    • Set "Capacity" to 1 if the staff member provides boarding and can board a maximum of 1 dog. 
    • Set "Capacity" to 2 or more if the staff member has "Capacity" to board more than one dog.
