An availability check is when you ask a staff member if they are available for a specific period of time. For example: “Hi, this is Nowsta. Are you available to work an event on December 12th from 3:00pm-8:00pm?”

In an availability check, staff can be in “Not yet messaged”, “Responses pending”, “Declined”, or “Available” status.

Not yet messaged is self explanatory.

Responses pending indicates the staff member was asked, but has not yet responded to your Availability Check.

Declined indicates the staff member received your message and stated they are not available for the time period specified in your Availability Check.

Available indicates the staff member received your message and stated they are available for the time period specified in your Availability Check.
