Calendar

I came over from Dogvacay from the merge. I really miss the calendar they used on the front of the dashboard. It would have a the week at a glance. The name of dogs and their services. When they were coming or leaving. That was so helpful. Has Rover ever thought of adopting any of the tools they used?

Rover please don't be mad at me for saying this, the whole DogVacy user interface was much easier to use.  The calander system was spot on.

Re: Calendar

Agree wholeheartedly here, I currently use a whiteboard system to keep track and my handwriting is effectively illegible. Never used dogvacay but a calendar on the dashboard with pups and services and maybe a daily census would be awesome.

Re: Calendar

Used both calendars Dogvacay & Rover.  Once familiarized with Rover calendar I appreciate it more.  I like having ability to customize the quantity of dogs accepted on a per day basis.  

As for tracking appointments, I use iCal which can then sound alerts for arrivals which I set to remind us at 30 mins prior to arrival time. Yahoo calendars work well too.  All of my business is done via my iPhone. Easy peasy. 😎

Re: Calendar

Separate walking and boarding calendars would be SUPER helpful, in addition to the ability to migrate those calendars to Google and iCal. I have a physical handwritten calendar on my fridge that I keep track of my clients on and if I'm not at home, I often have to ask my clients to wait until I'm in front of my calendar to check my availability. The Rover calendar doesn't offer me info at a glance and doesn't integrate with other apps, at least on mobile,which is primarily where I access it.

Re: Calendar

 Completely and totally agree! I really really wish we had DogVacay his calendar I cannot tell you how much I dislike Rover‘s calendar… Sorry guys! 

 And I know I can get the same effect if I go to Google calendars however that’s extra step and I would really preferred just to be able to stay on the same website or app etc.  it would make it so much easier to keep track of who’s coming that day or who is leaving that day.  For that matter much easier to count your stays at a quick glance for that day.

Re: Calendar

I'm going with an unpopular opinion but actualy prefer Rover's calendar, but do with there was one place (within the Rover platform) that lists all of the services (boarding/daycare/drop ins/overnight) for that day.

Re: Calendar

@CocoaMilo really? that was the only thing but I strongly desliked with DV.  you either have to be available for everything or nothing. there was no way to customize it.

For ex: you either had to offer walk every single day or not at all. I couldn't skip Tuesday.

I much prefer Rovers calendar where you can customize each individual service availbility for each day.
