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

 

A pet sitting company pays its dog walkers $7.50 for a 20 minute dog walk Monday to Friday but pays $8.50 for the same service on a weekend. 
 

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

ON DESKTOP:

Navigate to Admin > Services > Service Items > Compensation Conditions

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

STEP 2​​

  • Click "Compensation Conditions" from the menu.

  • Then click "Add a New Condition".

STEP 3​​

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

  • Type 8.50 in the panel labelled "Then compensation is"

  • Click "Add".

STEP 4

This has created a rule which you can now see on the Compensation Conditions list for this service item. This rule will automatically calculate compensation due of $8.50 for any 20 minute dog walk that you schedule on a Sunday.

This example where the compensation 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 pay sitters for 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 pay more or less for your services on those days

ON MOBILE:

STEP 1​​​​

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

STEP 2

  • Tap the service you wish to edit.

STEP 3

  • Tap the "Compensation Conditions" menu.

STEP 4

  • Tap "Add A New Condition" menu.
