Locumate 2.0 Update(Locum Edition)

Hey Locumate Community, 

We hope you’re doing well!  

You might have noticed a few changes on the app over the last few days and that’s because we recently released Locumate version 2.0! We wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude for your patience and support as we’ve been hard at work bringing you these significant updates. 

With any major product release, there may be a few bumps along the road. Your patience and cooperation during this time are invaluable to us. Rest assured; our dedicated team is working diligently to address any issues swiftly. 

So, what can you expect from the latest version of Locumate?  

  1. Pay Rates: We know how confusing it can be when you are trying to calculate your total compensation as well as your super contributions. To make this easier for you, we updated the rates advertised for each shift to now be displayed without super. You can review your super contribution when you receive your invoice, when you submit your timesheet and via your Earnings Dashboard on the app in your profile section.  

 2. The Apply vs Accept Shifts feature: You might notice that some shifts will have a blue Accept button while others have a yellow Apply button. We built this feature to give you more flexibility and options for managing your schedule and time.  

  • Shifts with the Accept button can be booked immediately, while the shifts with a yellow Apply button require you to submit your resume or CV to join the pool of candidates being considered.  
  • Once the pharmacy reviews your application, you will receive a notification via the app and email to communicate the outcome. If you receive an offer, make sure you respond to it within 24 hours. 
  • To ensure you can use the Apply feature, make sure you have an up-to-date resume or CV uploaded to your profile on the app. You can do this via the Documents section.  
  • If you Accept a shift that falls with the date range of another shift you have Applied for, any pending applications will be automatically withdrawn.

    3. Block a pharmacy: If you prefer not to see shifts from a particular pharmacy, you now have the opportunity to block them. And you can reverse this just as easily.  

    4. Hourly email notifications for new shifts posted: We want to make sure you’re across all the latest opportunities without inundating you with emails and messages. That’s why we’re introducing an hourly email notification which will give you a list of all the shifts that we posted within the last hour, giving you full visibility on demand. This feature has been paused for now while we iron out a few minor kinks. Once it’s back on the system, we will let you know.  

We really hope these updates make your Locumate experience even better! And your feedback is always welcome so please feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] with any questions or suggestions.  

Thank you again for your patience, support and for being part of the Locumate Family! 

Kind regards,  
The Locumate Team
