Worked Example: How to Add a Charge Condition that applies to the Days of the Week


A pet sitting company charges $12.00 for a 20 minute dog walk Monday to Friday but charges $15.00 for the same service at the weekends. 

In this example its useful to avoid creating a new service for weekend 20 minute dog walks. This will clutter up your service list and make the system less easy to use. Instead we set up a charge condition and apply it to the standard 20 minute dog walking service so that a higher rate is automatically calculated when the service is scheduled at the weekend.


  • Click "Add a New Condition"

  • Select "it is a weekend" in the left hand drop down menu

  • Type 15.00 in the box labelled "Then charge"

  • Click "Add".

This has created a rule which you can now see on the Charge Conditions list for this service item. This rule will automatically charge $15.00 for any 20 minute dog walk that you schedule on a Saturday or a Sunday. 

This example where the charge conditions are applied to days of the week apply to the following "If" statements:


  • If it is a public holiday - where you can set up any public holidays in your planner where you might change how you deliver your services on those days

  • If it is a weekday - will apply to Monday to Friday inclusive

  • If it is a weekend - will apply to Saturdays and Sundays

  • If the day is - where you can uncheck any days of the week where you may deliver your services at a different charge
