Welcome to StaffSavvy! 

This is a quick start guide to help you update and setup your account quickly.

Note: this is a generic guide for all organisations using StaffSavvy. You might have some features disabled or might be prevented from updating some information.

Your Details

You might be required to update your details when you first log in. You can update your details at any time under the My Account menu at the top of the page.

Your basic information such as names, email addresses and phone numbers are under My Account > About Me > Update My Details.

You also have further information that we call Private Details. This includes your next of kin, bank account details, addresses etc. This is under My Account > About Me > My Private Details.

Your Availability & Time Off/Holiday

There are two ways to provide your availability. Both are under My Account > My Availability in the menu.

The weekly preferences page allows you to request not to work certain times during the week subject to restrictions and limits set by managers. You can update this information any time and we strongly recommend you keep it up to date as often as possible.

It won't affect the shifts you currently have but it will affect new shifts assigned to you. It will also stop the system from notifying you about optional shifts if you have said you are not available.

Time Off/ Holiday is where you can book your longer periods of time off or use your holiday entitlement. This will be sent off to managers to approve. 

My Shifts

You can view your current shifts under Shifts > My Shifts. Here you might also be able to request cover or exchange shifts with colleagues. You can view the details page for more information about the shift.

Under the Actions menu in the top right of the page, you can find a link to the iCal feed. This allows you to have your shifts automatically sync'd to your device calendar.

Available Shifts

This is found under Shifts > Available Shifts and will list all of the shifts that you could choose to work. You can then choose to take a shift or offer to work a shift from this page.

You can turn on email notifications for available shifts under you Edit My Details page.
