One common request we’ve heard from sitters and walkers is that you’d like the ability to modify stays that are already booked without having to call in to customer service. Our development team here at Rover has been working long and hard on finding the right solution, and I’m excited to share with you all a huge progress update!
Now, all sitters will be able to modify already-booked-stays on their own - without having to call into customer support for assistance. Sitters can make updates to dates, pets, number of walks and drop-ins, and even issue refunds by selecting the “modify booking” button on a current or upcoming stay.
To read more about how this new function works, check out this Help Center article. (Just a heads up: The feature isn’t accessible within the Rover app quite yet.)
What do you think of this new feature? Will you use it?
@AndreaH The new update looks great BUT I have most of my clients on the recurring booking option, are there any changes to this? I have recently asked if we could modify to allow zero days for a specific week or to have a toggle to put the booking on a temporary hold while either the client or the sitter is on vacation - anything to report?
Hi @WaltG - Recurring bookings are outside the scope of this specific update. However, we hear your concerns. Many people have shared similar feedback, and our Product and Design teams are actively looking at improving this workflow. While we can't give any specifics around timing, we know what a big deal this is for customers. Stay tuned for more updates!
Update as of 8/20/18: Users with iOS version 3.77 and later will be able to use edit a booked stay on the app!
