< Service Item Time Blocks < Adding a Time Block


Click ADMIN > SERVICES > SERVICE ITEMS > ADVANCED  from the sub menu. 


You can add as many time blocks as you wish and choose your own intervals. For example, you could give your clients the option to choose their service in hourly or 2-hourly intervals, such as:


9:00 am - 11:00 am

11:00 am - 1:00 pm

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm and so on.


If you want to offer clients more control over the time they select for the service, you can offer smaller time blocks:


9:00 am - 9.30am

9:30 am - 10:00 am


How do I add a time block?

  • Firstly, make sure you have selected 'Time Block' from the Time Type option.

  • Click "Add time block".

  • Drag the sliders either to the right or left to set your time interval.

  • Add all the time blocks the service item requires using this method.

To make life easier when scheduling, the service can be scheduled at a time represented by the mid point of the time block. However the scheduler is further able to change the specific time of the service to indicate to the sitter an earlier or a later time to start the service within the time block. You can amend the time when adding a job to a service order or change it using the edit jobs function if you want it to be carried out at a different time to the default.


How do I default the time to the middle of the time block?


  • Check the box by "Default Time to Middle of Time Block".

  • When you have finished, click "Update".
