If you only want to offer specific services on certain days, you can also manage this in the Calendar section of your account.

On the left side of your screen, select the arrow next to a service and check the boxes next to the days you're available.


Note: If you frequently don't book requests you receive for days you're available, some of your services may be automatically set to Away mode. This is why it's important to keep your calendar up to date. To learn more about keeping your profile and services active, visit this article from the Rover Blog.
