Worked Example: How to Add a Charge Condition that applies to Schedule Periods

 

A pet sitting company charges $12.00 for a 20 minute dog walk in the morning or at midday but $11.00 for the dog walk in the afternoon. 
 

In this example it's useful to avoid creating a new service for an afternoon dog walk. 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 walk service so that a lower rate is automatically calculated when the service is scheduled in the afternoon.

ON DESKTOP:

Navigate to Admin > Services > Service Items > Charge Conditions

STEP 1
  • Click the service item you wish to edit.

  • Select "Afternoon" from the second drop down menu

  • Type 11.00 in the panel labelled "Then charge"

  • Click "Add".

STEP 4

This has created a rule which you can now see on the Charge Conditions list for this service item. This rule will automatically charge $11.00 for any 20 minute dog walk that you schedule in an afternoon throughout the whole week.

This example where the charge conditions are applied to diary periods apply to the following "If" statements:

 

  • If the time period is - you are given the option of Morning, Midday, Afternoon and Other and these periods are as set out in your Schedule Column View or Compact View. These periods can be altered to suit your pet sitting business and are found under Admin > Settings > Schedule Settings > Column View Headings.

ON MOBILE:

STEP 1​​​​

  • Tap the Navigator, and select Admin > Services > Service Items > Charge Conditions

STEP 2

  • Tap the service you wish to edit.

STEP 3

STEP 5

  • Select "the time period is" in the left hand drop down menu

  • Select "Afternoon" from the second drop down menu

  • Type 11.00 in the panel labelled "Then charge"

  • Click "Add".

STEP 6

This has created a rule which you can now see on the Charge Conditions list for this service item. This rule will automatically charge $11.00 for any 20 minute dog walk that you schedule in an afternoon throughout the whole week.
