Show Client and Pet Name in the Schedule

Modified on Fri, 14 Oct 2022 at 04:58 PM

You can choose how your client name is displayed in your Schedule (List, Column and Compact View). Some people prefer to use the client name, some the pet name and others prefer to see both.

These options are:
  • "Client Name and Ref” displays both the client first and last name, and the client reference (which is usually contains the pets names).
  • “Client Ref” displays the client reference only. As most Pet Sitter Plus users store the pet names in the client reference field (sometimes referred to as “schedule ref”) choosing this option means that ONLY the pet name(s) will be displayed in the schedule.
  • “Client Name” displays the client name only, with no pet name.


Tip: If you don't like the way the Schedule looks when you log in, simply change the default settings to how you prefer to see it.
