Adding A Service

Adding a service is simple in Time To Pet! In this help article, we will review the steps to add a service to your account. To add a service, first select the "Services" tab on the sidebar and select "Services & Holidays":

Next, click the "+New Service" button:

Services have a lot of “bells and whistles” in Time To Pet and we have a great help article detailing all of the aspects of a service  here. In this article, we will focus on the basics of a service.
Each service has a default name. This tends to be whatever your service is. We will use "30 Minute Dog Walk":

The default duration is where you choose how much time this type of service takes. Remember, our service was a 30 minute dog walk so we will set this to 30 minutes. That means whenever we schedule this service, it will take 30 minutes on our calendar:

Services can also be “Selectable By Clients”. If checked, this means a client can request this service from the Client App or the Client Portal. If you have a service that you don’t want clients to request (and you just want to schedule it for clients) - you can uncheck this box.

Let’s skip down a bit to the “Rates” section of the page. A service will have a default cost that your customer pays you. Keep in mind that you can adjust this rate on a client by client basis if you have special pricing for certain clients:

If you are required to collect sales tax, you can also mark your service as “Taxable”. Check out out help doc on sales tax in Time To Pet for more information on this feature.
If you plan on using Time To Pet to track how much you pay your staff members, you can set a Default Staff Rate for your service. This can be a flat dollar amount or a % of the client rate. We will set this to $10 for our 30 minute dog walk service. If different staff members get paid differently, this can also be adjusted on a staff by staff basis:

Time To Pet also supports automated extra pet fees. These are fees that are automatically added to your client's invoice when multiple pets are selected. You can also choose whether or not you pay your staff for extra pets here as well. Check out our help article on  Extra Pet Fees for more info.
As a reminder, these are just the basics. We also have a full help article on  Services you can review. We've also put together a short video showing you how to add a service:
