Why use Impact to run an Avail Check?
Avail Checks are the bread and butter of getting a production off the ground! If you're interested in hiring someone, you must first check if they're available to work on your show! Impact makes it easy for hirers to reach out to crew candidates and see if they are free to work for a set range of dates.
The "HIRING" tab is an all-in-one tool that allows hirers to quickly search for the qualified crew, contact them to confirm availability, and track responses all in one spot. If you have several productions or various roles you are hiring for, they will all be viewable in one place. You can reach out to the crew regardless of whether or not you have their direct contact information!
How to send someone an Avail Check
To send someone an Avail Check, select the "Check Avail" button within their profile headline. From there, a dialogue box will appear asking you to select from the jobs you have created, or you can create a new job by clicking the “Add a Job +” button. You may also include an optional personalized note for each candidate. Once this is done, select "Submit."
To learn more about creating a job, you can check out this help guide.
No need to worry about a potential candidate missing your Avail Check. As long as contact information remains up-to-date, Avail Checks will also send in the form of the email! The sample email will include your name, the role you are hiring for, the title of the production, shooting location and of course, availability dates.
Review Your Avail Check List
Once a candidate selects either “Yes” or “No,” your job listing within the "Hiring" tab will be instantly updated to reflect whether they are “Available," “Not Available” or have yet to respond. If they are available, you will then be able to see the candidate’s contact information and reach out to them for the next steps.
And there you have it on submitting Avail Checks! If you have any further questions or have a particular concern that was not addressed in this article, please reach out to Impact Support.
