You can add Availability as a way of notifying your supervisor that you're able to work at a set time and date. You can use the Availability feature from within your Team Xpress app.
Note: The Availability feature will only be available if you've been given access to use it.
In this article, we'll look at the following on Availability in Team Xpress:

Locating your Availability in Team Xpress
You can find the Availability feature located in the Schedule section of your Team Xpress app.
Managing your Availability
If you want to manage your Availability efficiently, we encourage that you check the date and times inside your Availability, and ensure that you've submitted exactly when you can work. If you don't, you may not be selected to work any shifts.
Let's look at how you can add Availability.
You can click Add new to Add a new Availability.
Inside, you'll be able to define:
End Date (On date or Never)
Days available (recurring days you're available)
All day (24 hours)
Type (Availability types defined by supervisor)
You can Save when you've completed the form.
On date or Never
You have two options for your End date.
On date - You choose a date that your Availability record ends.
Never - Your Availability is continuous and doesn't end unless you delete the record. You will not be able to select an End date using this option.
Recurrence patterns are created when you choose a sequence of days to recur an Availability record.
You can click the View recurrence option to see your list of recurrences.
You can click View recurrence to see any Availability recurrences (patterns) you've submitted.
Inside, you'll see the list of recurrences you've submitted.
You can choose Continuous duration option if you want your Availability to roll day-on-day. This option means you won't specify the days you want to work; you'll be available every day.
Note: You must choose Never for this option to be available.
Multi-selecting sites and services
You can define multiple sites and services you're available to work at by multi-selecting them. You can click on either of the dropdown options below.
You can then check mark the sites/services you want to be available for, and Save.
Submitting your Availability
Once you've completed the Availability form, click Save to create the record.
Your supervisor will then review your Availability and select you to work at these sites/services if shifts are available.
Let's look at how you can Delete or Edit Availability records.
Deleting or Editing Availability
If you want to Delete or Edit an Availability record, you must click the record to enter it.
If you click Delete, you'll be asked to confirm that you definitely want to delete the record.
If you click Edit, you'll be taken back into the Availability form to make changes to your initial record.
