Step 2: Submit your availability

It's important to understand the difference between Availability and Time off

Availability:  This is how you communicate to your manager which time of day, or which days of the week you prefer not to work due to classes, other jobs, etc.

Time Off:  Use this to ask your manager for days you need to take off.

Now, here's how to submit your availability:

1. Go to Availability in the side menu. 

2. Tap the ‘+’ to add your availability.


3. Choose the type of availability you are submitting - Weekly or Repeating. 

4. Choose the dates you are and are not available.

Once you are done, tap 'Save' and your manager will be notified of your availability request.

NOTE: If you can't select weekly availability, it means that your manager disabled this option.
