Calendar availability and management
By default on the NISTR service the availability of a substitute teacher is set to unconfirmed.
The onus is on the substitute teacher to login and manage their availability changing 'unconfirmed' to 'available' (or unavailable). The system will allow management of the next 30 calendar days from the current login date. Automatic emails will be sent from the system to remind substitute teacher users to manage availability.
Bookings can be made when a substitute teacher is marked as 'available' or 'unconfirmed'. This permits the creation of current, future and retrospective bookings.
Sort Order Advantage
When a school creates a booking the matching teachers sort order will be by substitute teachers who have marked themselves as 'available' first and then by and 'unconfirmed'. This default order will show schools a more accurate list of substitute teachers who are actively available to work in the short term.
