How to Use
Set a Candidate's Permanent Shift Availability
In many instances, a candidate is available for certain shifts on an on-going basis - for example someone may say that they are available for Day Shift on Mon to Fri and Afternoon Shift on Sat & Sun etc.
To set this "Permanent Shift Availability" go to the Candidate's record and click on the Casual Management & Shifts - Permanent links.
It is worth noting that Shifts (Day, Afternoon, Night) are subjective terms and should be used by your agency to imply particular times of the day that are relevant to your business. Also, Candidates have the ability to set their permanent shift availability in their Candidate Portal.
Shift Availability Report
To see a candidate's availability for the next 30 days - click from their record, click on the Casual Management & Shifts links.
