Sitters! Do you ever use the Find A Sitter page?

Happy Friday sitters!

We are looking at the sitter navigation currently in the Member Experience team and we have a quick question…

Do you ever use the Find A Sitter page?

If so, why?


Yes! When I want to find a particular person, when I want to see who is active in a particular area, when I want to see the profiles of people who have left reviews, when I am feeling curious :smiley: and when I want to see how others are setting up their profiles who have been very successful.
Great question.

Hi! :wave:t4:


@ArjunaTHS Yes, I do sometimes. Why?

  • To try to see the experience owners have when viewing sitters. I do that on both the website and the app, and with different browsers. I’ve recently found that different browsers seem to give different displays. :thinking:

  • To see what affects the order of sitters displaying in my local area.

  • To see if I know anyone locally who is also a sitter, and I did find someone I know but didn’t know they are a sitter here.

  • To see how my friend is doing since she joined - whether she’s enjoying her sits (as sometimes we forget to catch up on our sits as we have so much else to talk about).

  • To see if people who have asked me locally about being a sitter have ever joined. Yes, some have, and I was pleased to see that.


Yes, I use it for all sorts of different reasons.


Yes, to show others who are considering joining what sitters are in their general area and so they can see their reviews.

Yes, as others have already said, for a myriad of reasons: to compare local sitters in same area as we are; past sitter reviews; to review more experienced sitters’ profiles; to review our profile so we know what it appears like to HOs; etc.

Absolutely! And for all the reasons @Amparo and @Snowbird have mentioned! You will see I started a new thread when I noticed the Find A Sitter layout had changed when using my computer - not for the better for either owner or sitter (I have a combined membership) and my reasons were expressed there.


Thanks for all your replies over the weekend.

Sounds like there are some uses to it on the sitter-side which is good to know. :slight_smile:

We are always looking to look at ways of improving the navigation on the site, and want everything within it to be relevant to our members.
