<      Column View Headings < Changing the Start and End times of the Columns

  • When services are added to Pet Sitter Plus, they are given a "time" and the values you assign to the "start time" and "end time" settings in "Column View Headings" will control which schedule column your services will appear in. 

  • Each of the 4 columns of the Schedule in Column View (seen in Scheduler > Schedule > Column View) represents a period of time which can be given a label, for example your "Morning" column could represent a period of time from midnight to 10:00am or 8:00am to 11:15am.

  • Column 4 is the "catch all" column which means that any "time" during any 24 hour period that is not defined in columns 1 2 and 3 will be assigned to column 4. 

    • ​Example, if you define your morning column as 7:00am to 10:00am, then the period of time from midnight to 7:00am (which is NOT defined as part of column 1) will become assigned to column 4. This means that any service assigned a time of between midnight and 7:00am will appear in column 4. As this is generally not what you would want to happen, it is strongly advised that;

      • your morning column (column 1) should always start from midnight and

      • that the start and end times assigned to the first three columns should be contiguous (ie with no gaps in between start and end times).

ON DESKTOP:

Navigate to Admin > Settings > Schedule Settings > Column View Settings 
STEP 1​​

  • Enter the times you wish each column to represent.

  • Click "Update".

In your Morning column, it could represent a period of time from 8:00am to 11:15am.

The "time" a service is given when it is scheduled will control where it appears in the schedule in column view.

Note that even though services can also be configured with a "time block", it is the value of "time" assigned to a service which controls which column it appears in.
