Employee guide - weekly availability

This article includes the following topics:

  • Recurring Availability
  • Once Off Availability
  • Updating your availability after a roster has been published

What is the availability system

The availability system allows you to select times that you are unable to work informing your manager of times you can work.  

Why is this important 

Once the roster has been published, or the deadline has passed, you won’t be able to submit availability for that week. 

Contact your manager to check your deadline for submitting a request.

Availability period always matches roster period.

Recurring availability 

1. Recurring availability occurs every week.  

2. User recurring availability if your availability doesn't change very often or will be the same for a long period of time. 

3. Click the availability tab
