Once you have found your sitter you need to unpublish your ad so that no new sitters will contact you unnecessarily. You will also need to inform the rest of the applicants that they were unsuccessful and thank them for applying.
When you unpublish your ad it will no longer be seen in the home owners list and a "sitter found" message will be displayed on the ad page. Although the ad itself is unpublished you can continue conversations with the sitters you have been chatting with from your 'Messages page'.
You can unpublish your ad using one of the following methods:
- Method 1. Click your name near the top right of the site and in the menu that appears choose 'My control panel'. On the next page in the one line description of your ad look for the heading 'Action'. Beneath that click the 'Unpublish' link. The ‘Status’ will change to ‘Unpublished’ and your profile will no longer be visible.
- Method 2. On the Mindahome website in your members control panel click the 'Main listing' link and then scroll down the page to the 'Visibility' button. Click the 'Unpublished' button and then click the red 'Submit changes' button at the bottom of the page.
