Great news for ipoint users. We’ve introduced a digital ID badge to our app. As requested by our users, this handy feature is ready to use. It’s important to note, you’ll still need to carry your physical ID badge with you, but now you’ll always have a back-up badge in your back pocket.

Here’s a quick how-to:

  1. Log in to ipoint
  2. Tap the menu icon on the main dashboard screen
  3. Select ‘My profile’
  4. Tap the ‘Badge’ option at the bottom of the screen
  5. View your digital ID badge

Availability calendar

  • Edit preferences at any time by selecting ‘Edit my Notifications’ in the ‘My Profile’ section  

When a shift matches your preferences, you’ll receive an instant alert ensuring you’re always first to the best shifts.

Finding shifts

ipoint has thousands of shifts available each day, so you can always find the shifts you want. With ipoint you can search all shifts – or just the ones that match your specific criteria.  

Search and filter by:  

  •  All shifts  
  •  Hospitals and wards  
  •  Data range  
  •  Band  
  •  Skills  
  •  Distance  

If no shifts are found, try widening your search and updating your availability. If you’re still not seeing any shifts, please contact us on ipoint.servicedesk@acaciumgroup.com.  

Once you’ve found the perfect shift, simply click the ‘Book’ button to secure it.

  

Compliance

Expired compliance will stop you from booking shifts, so it’s important that you’re able to access these documents.  

ipoint allows you to view all your current, expiring and expired compliance documents so you never lose a day of work. To update your compliance, you can email or call us from the app.  

Direct booking a shift

If you prefer to book your shifts directly with the hospital and then let us know, you can now do this via ipoint. The Direct Booking feature is available via the main dashboard and ‘My Shifts’ section.  

Simply give us the details of the booking and we’ll make sure it’s on our systems. If you can’t see this feature or the specific trust, hospital or unit please get in touch on shifts@pulsejobs.com.  

Timesheets

It’s vital that you have control over your finances, so ipoint lets you view your received and processed timesheets. You can see shift details such as start and finish times, so you have full peace of mind that you’re paid correctly.  

If you have any queries relating to your timesheets please contact our payroll team for further information:
