A crucial element of being a successful sitter on the app is the accurate maintaining of your availability. bubble automatically prioritises the babysitters who regularly keep their availability up to date.
If you’re ready to receive job requests, you need to ensure that:
1. Your DO NOT DISTURB Switch is set to OFF.
Having this switch on means you are offline and will not receive any sit requests.
2. If you’d like to receive Express Booking requests (how?) then make sure your Express Book Toggle is ON.
The app has a 2-week availability calendar so that you can set your availability every day on a rolling 2-week basis. You are required to turn yourself ON for the slots you are free, and OFF for those where you’re not.
The availability is structured into the following three periods of time;
- Morning (until midday),
- Daytime (before 6pm)
- and Evening (after 6pm)
Keeping your availability up to date will mean more sit requests, more jobs and more new families to meet so it's well worth the couple of minutes required a week to keep it accurate. :-)
