Released on August 22nd, PPS has expanded our mobile application to include client access, in system chat features, and general enhancements to the UI and flow of action. Below are the most common questions from both Admins, Sitters, and Clients.
Chat, push notifications (of chat messages and email of completion), and allowing clients to see the collected GPS and Timestamp information are conditional; you must first enable Mobile for Clients.
Once you have, you’ll see the three feature options populate below.
You can enable Chat for All Sitters, All clients, or for both. All profiles in your business will automatically adjust their permissions to match whatever selections are saved in this area. This allows you to, for example, enable chat for all your sitters, but not all your clients. You can individually mark which clients you would like to have this, in their profiles.
Access ‘Conversation Report’ in your Reports tab. You can sort by date, client, sitter or service.
No. The conversations are tied to the individual visit. This also means you will not see a ‘Chat’ button for anyone you are not personally assigned to.
Not as of yet but PPS is hard at work with our developers to bring this finishing touch to the Chat feature. We understand how important pictures for Pet Parents are!
Sitter and Client FAQ’s
Not at all! PPS has built this in such a way that no data or text SMS is used in the chat feature.
You see on your appointment list page, all the visits that are scheduled for today. Depending on if the business owner has enabled the Chat feature, you will see the ‘Chat’ button on any viable visit, where both Sitter and Client are able to chat.
Simply tap on the chat associated with the current visit and start chatting away!
Not as of yet, no, but PPS knows how great that feature will be and we’re planning on expanding towards the ability to schedule via app!
