Please note that blocks can only consist of shifts based at the same location.

Firstly, you’ll need to navigate to the ‘Shifts’ tab located in the top left-hand corner of the main navigation panel.

Once on the ‘Shifts’ screen, you will see the sub-heading ‘Shifts’ under the ‘All Shifts’ heading on the tabs on the left-hand side. Click here.

You’ll note the ability to manipulate the shifts that display by utilising the filterable options available such as ‘Date Range’, ‘Job Type’ & ‘Region’.

You’ll also note the ‘+ Add Filter’ option, at this stage you must click here to display the following drop-down menu.

From the drop-down menu, you must select the option ‘Search By Locations’. Once the filter has been added, click on the relevant location within the drop-down menu.

Now that the location has been selected, you’ll be required to check the checkbox on the left hand side of any shifts you wish to add to your block as displayed below:

Once you have selected the relevant shift(s), click on the green ‘Options’ button. To reveal the below drop-down menu:

At this stage, you’ll select the option ‘Make Block’. Once selected the below modal will display:

Here, you’ll be required to select whether or not you wish to create an ‘Optional’ block (Locums can select which shifts within the block they wish to apply for) or a ‘Mandatory’ block (Locums can only apply for the entire block).

You’ll also be able to edit the shift visibility by unchecking the ‘All Tiers’ checkbox to display the following options:

It is however advised to enable all tiers as this will boost shift visibility and aid in successfully fulfilling the shift.

Once you’re happy with the selected information click on the green ‘Make Block’ button. The block can then be viewed by clicking on the ‘Blocks’ tab located under the heading ‘All Shifts’.
