Direct invites are a fantastic way to help ensure your shift can be filled and fast!
You can send direct invites to both your favourite nurses/carers and those recommended to you. Favourites will be those that you have worked with before, whereas recommended individuals are our suggestions as they will be a close match for your shift.
When posting a shift, you will have the option to send a direct invite through one of two methods. The first is ‘send invitations for me’. This option will automatically invite your favourites, followed by recommended workers. There is also the option to ‘manually send invitations’. This will leave the choice to you of who you would like to invite. For more information on this option, please see 'How to send a manual direct invite'.
When sending a direct invite, this acts as an extra alert to those that receive this. They will be able to view the information for your shift and if they are interested in working, they can accept the invite. When a nurse or carer accepts an invite, they are then automatically booked for your shift. You will not need to approve their application.
Do make sure that when posting a shift, you select the option that you are most happy with. If you would prefer to invite only a select few to your shift, the option to ‘manually send invitations’ would be best for you.
Once an invite has been accepted, you will receive an email to notify you of this and the shift will then appear under ‘Booked Shifts’.
