In certain cities where we operate, you may see the option to book a Tasker for the same day.
The main difference between same day tasks and future date tasks is that for same day tasks, you are not able to choose your Tasker. The option you can select is called "Quick Assign".
A Tasker will be assigned if they have the experience and availability to help out.
You can book an on-demand Tasker using the web or your iOS mobile app.
Once you hire your Tasker, you will have the opportunity to chat with your Tasker about the details regarding your task so that both of you can make sure that the task is a good fit. Please note that your Tasker may forfeit the task if you do not respond to chat messages. You can find more information about chatting with your Tasker in this article.
How to Hire for Same Day on your Mobile App:
From the homepage of your mobile app, please verify your task location in the upper left corner. The task location will automatically default to your current location. You can update this by simply tapping the task address field. For convenience, you can save frequently used locations such as your home or work.
Next, select your task category. If you do not see the category you're looking for, scroll to the bottom of the page where you will see a search field.
Once you have selected your category, you will have the opportunity to add your task details.We recommend including as much information about your task as possible for the best results. Under the Instant tab, you will find the estimated arrival time listed.
If you have a promo code, use the field below Task Details to apply it to your task. And lastly, tap Continue to book!
After booking, you will see a screen that shows we are currently searching for available Taskers. Once a Tasker accepts the request, you will be notified by SMS and by email. The screen will change to a chat window where you can communicate with the Tasker and confirm the details of the task.
To review your task details, select Task Info. From this tab, you can review your task, add a promo, or cancel the task.
How to Hire for Same Day on the Web
Please visit us at taskrabbit.com (or taskrabbit.co.uk if you're in London). To begin the booking process you will need to select a task category. You can start by using the search bar to browse categories or you can select from one of the templates below.
Next, enter details about your task, including when you'd like it done and where the task is located. Please keep in mind that on-demand tasks are automatically projected to at least one hour in the future.
After you click Save, you will be shown the Quick Assign option instead of allowing you to select a specific Tasker. This option is at a set hourly rate. Please note the price will vary based on your task category, location, and Tasker availability.
When you select this option and hit Confirm and Book, notifications are sent out to a Tasker who has agreed that they are right for your task.
At this point, a chat thread will open and you can communicate with your Tasker via chat.
You are not able to chat with your Tasker or view their profile until the task is picked up by the assigned Tasker.
After booking, the task remains available to the Tasker community for a total of 2 hours. If there is no Tasker available for the task, the job will automatically close out at the 2 hour mark and you will not be charged.
