Availability Calendar

The benefits of adding your availability are:

  • Filters through thousands of shifts
  • Only shifts that match your availability will be shown
  • Receive messages about your favourite shifts

You can update your availability using the calendar.

Using the availability key, you can add when you’ll be available – whether it be for days, nights, morning or afternoon, it’s all there.

Our auto-matching function will use your availability to notify you of any new suitable shifts when they’re added to ipoint.

Holiday mode tells us when you’re not around - meaning we won’t contact you until you return.

Notifications

We want you to be aware of the latest shifts available. Using your availability, we’ll send you notifications with recommended shifts.

We’ll send you a text with your number one recommended shift, plus an email with all recommended shifts that have been added that day.

Recommended shifts are based on your history working at either a hospital or ward.

If there are no shifts available at your preferred hospital, or if you are new to Pulse, we will recommend shifts as close to your postcode as possible.

You can control these notifications and frequency by contacting your consultant. The number of messages and delay between messages that you receive can be tailored to your preferences.

Finding a shift

There are a range of filters to help narrow down your search when finding a shift.

Availability

  • The ‘match my availability’ filter shows you any shifts which align with the dates and times you have inputted when you are free to work in the calendar.

All shifts

  • You can now view all shifts available. When using this filter, you will be prompted with an additional filter, ‘shift type’, to help narrow down your search.

Hospital and ward filters

  • Hospital and ward filters are multi-selectable.
  • The ward filter will only appear if only one hospital is selected.
  • If no hospital, or multiple hospitals are selected you are unable to search by ward.

Date range

  • To search for shifts within a specific date range, use the Dates filter.

Band

  • The band filter is multi-select but will only show bands you are skilled to do.

Skills 

  • The skills filter is multi-select and will only show those applicable to you 

Distance

  • Distance is shown in miles from your home address.

*If your postcode needs updating, please inform your consultant.

Confirming a shift

Once you have booked onto a shift, it will show as provisional until your consultant has confirmed you’re working with the client.

Upon confirmation, your booking will show as booked in ipoint, in the “my shifts” section.

You will also receive a text to confirm your shift has been booked.

If you are booked directly onto a shift by your consultant and your shift is showing as provisional, you will need to call your consultant to confirm your shift.

In this section you can see all of your booked shifts, the shifts you have worked and those that we recommend for you. 

For worked shifts highlighted in yellow, this means you have not yet been paid. For worked shifts highlighted in black then you’ll have been paid.
