Website won't let me change the sit dates or send a private invite with the sit dates I want

Hello I tried to update the House Sit dates on my listing from 9/3 to 9/8 but the website tells me:
“An error occurred, your changes were not saved. Please try again.”

Also, I actually already found a house sitter and I’m trying to send her a private invite but it’s not working either. Can I get some help or guidance?

Hello @stewartlikeshousesitting and good to see you in the forum again. I’m going to tag @Therese-Moderator here to help you but I think the answer will be useful for other members. I believe (although not 100% sure) that it’s because the day is so imminent. But I know Therese will set us straight.

Hi @stewartlikeshousesitting
The reason this sometimes happens is if there were recorded dates previously and there may have been an overlap, the dates will not be accepted.
I have activated this, so please do contact the sitter so you can confirm the sit with them.
Hope this helps and please let me know if you need any further help.


Thank you! I did see I couldn’t repost the same day as a start date. But I was able to start it for the next day originally. Now I can’t put the start date for any day until September 12th (the day after the end of my original sit dates) so it seems there is some hidden calendar blocking everything.

@stewartlikeshousesitting I have removed all the Sept dates registered, so you should be able to go to the inbox … and private invite now for the dates you want.


Amazing thank you!
