The ability for your clients to request a service (such as a dog walk) on a specified date is an optional function within your Client Portal, which you can choose to make available to your clients or not. To find out how to switch this function on or off from Pet Sitter Plus, please refer to the Client Portal Settings help page.


Next you need to decide which of your service items you want your clients to be able to request and ensure they are made visible in the client portal - see the Advanced sub menu in each Service Items settings.


Please note that the client is only "requesting" the service at this stage - you will be notified by email of the "job request" and can the choose whether you wish to schedule it or communicate the request to the client and/or sitter to clarify any details. See What Happens After a Booking is Made Online? for details on what to do next. 


NOTE: Only if you have enabled your clients to make online bookings (request services) will there be a green "Request Services" button shown under the account number towards the top right of each screen in the client portal, as shown in the screenshot of an account summary in the portal below.
