Tap to select a day or days (by dragging your finger) when you are available for work or unavailable.


The event details page loads.

2. Add a contact

Add any agency and business contact you like working with…

Click the menu button (three horizontal lines top left to add and view contacts).

Add the email address of anybody you want to share your latest availability with and to get offers from.

Add as many contacts as you want, there are no restrictions.

Only contacts you add to your contacts list see when you are unavailable or available.

Your contacts can see your latest availability at anytime by using the portal or simply clicking the link in the email alert they are sent.

Any agencies or businesses can use the subscription based API to get your updates directly (if you added them as a contact) into their systems accurately without any data entry,  so they know instantly when you are available saving you and them time and effort.

Once you’ve added a contact click the Red Share button top right to create your account and authenticate your details.

You’ll be asked to enter your unique email address.

If you are new to updatedge you’ll be asked to sign up for a new account.

You can use your social media account which is nice and quick or create an updatedge specific account.

Update your latest availability

Share to let your selected contacts know when you are available or not…

Add your future availability days or when you are unavailable and click the red share icon when finished.

Your contacts don’t see any confidential details.

Your contacts only see when you are:
“Available Now” or
“Working I’m unavailable” or have
“Private Unavailable” commitments, such as holidays, or
“Private Unavailable but offers considered” events. That could be changed for the right offer.

Your contacts can see your latest availability at anytime using the free portal or following the links in each of the email alerts.

Get More Job Offers

Receive more offers from your contacts…

The larger your network of contacts you share with and the more often you share the more job offers you will get from your preferred hirers and agencies.

Sharing often gives your contacts confidence you are available.

Apply to offers & nominate your preferred agencies

When you apply for an offer you can add which agencies you like to work through or if you want to go direct.

When the offer is confirmed you are notified and the mutual agency is notified at the same time.

Supply teacher

updatedge saves me loads of time, I’m no longer getting endless text messages, emails and calls asking if I’m available.

Every time I get a request I add that person to my contacts list and they instantly get my latest availability.

I’m getting more supply teaching assignments from my agencies and directly from schools too.
