The 'Availability' screen allows you to set in advance when you’re free to respond to call-outs or not. This information is particularly useful for times when a team needs to be formed quickly, where there may not be enough members with certain qualifications responding.
The ‘Weekly’ tab will be open by default when you tap on ‘Availability’ from the main bottom menu.
In the weekly tab, you will see a table which is split up into days and hourly blocks. By tapping on a block, you will change your availability status for the corresponding day and hour.
By default the status cycle option will be selected, which will set a specific status depending on the number of times you have tapped a cell:
Tapping a block once will make it green, which indicates that you are available
Tapping a block twice will turn it red, indicating that you’re not available during this time-slot
Tapping a block a third time will turn it purple, which indicates that you are on premises
Tapping a block a fourth time will turn it yellow, which indicates that you are a delayed response greater than 20 minutes
Tapping a block a fifth time will turn it orange, which indicates that you are available for Emergencies only (ie. Section 44’s, State of Emergencies)
You can also select a specific status instead of cycling through, by using the ‘Status Picker’ option.
Tap on the 'Availability' item in the main bottom menu
The 'Weekly Tab' will be open by default
Tap on the ‘Status Picker’ paintbrush icon in the top left-hand corner of the table:
A popup will appear, listing each availability status - select a status from the list
Tap on your choice of table cells for any time and day, and your selected status will be set
Please Note: You can use the status picker to select the classic ‘Default - Cycle’ option.

Within the status picker popup, you can also select from some additional options:

To view the availability of your team mates, tap on the ‘Members’ tab at the top of the screen.
