Merging runs

Merging runs

When making a board appointment, there is an option to Merge runs.  This allows you to merge two or more runs into one in order to track them on the schedule as a single reservation.  This feature is most commonly used by facilities that have cages with dividers that can be removed to turn two small runs into a larger run.


On the boarding appointment screen, you must first choose a run.


Next, click on the Merge button.

In the run column on the boarding schedule, the run will be listed as M:number to signify this is a Merged run.


On the Run Glance, the pet will show in all merged runs for the date range.
