If a Hub wishes you to self-assign to shifts in their rota they will turn this feature on for their Hub.
This means you will see shifts that you are eligible to self-assign to within your Schedule. These you can click on and easily self-assign.
Doing this creates an Assignment in your Schedule and solves that shift for the Hub – no-one else can self assign to the shift once it is claimed in this way.
Here is a short video showing how to ensure you can see self-assignment shifts in your Schedule.
The back story
GPnetworks was the inspiration of a GP. Back in noughties, a GP, working as a locum had the idea that an online network that connected all the locums with all the Practices would benefit everyone (except the agencies).
The GP teamed up with a techie mate and together they devised the first version of the system.
Needless to say, it was a great success and more sophisticated versions followed.
