Your Cover Requests Settings will make sure that all your requests are completely targeted and specific to you. There are 4 sections of your cover request settings – Your Class Categories, Location, Availability and Minimum Pay rate.
Class categories – this is where you specify which types of classes you can cover. Choose the categories that best suit the classes you teach. One category may include multiple classes for example if you teach TRX classes these will fall under the Strength / Fitness category, whilst an aerobics or dance fitness class would fall under Exercise to Music. If you teach Les Mills classes, make sure you select all the classes you teach. You should select all the categories you are qualified to teach. You will only receive requests for classes in the categories that you have specified you teach.
Location – You must set your location range of where you would like to be considered for cover. You can write in an address or choose your current location and then you will be able to choose the distance around that location that you would like to cover for. You can set this range as big or as small as you want to.
Availability – You are able to set your availability so that you only receive requests for classes that you may be available for. If you know that you never want to receive requests for Monday mornings or Friday evenings for example, then you can just turn this availability off. You can, however, keep your availability set to ON for all days/times which means that you will receive all the requests and then can choose whether to accept or decline them as they come in.
Minimum rate – This is where you can specify the lowest pay rate you would like to receive requests for. You can set this for 60 min classes, 45 mins classes and 30 mins classes. If you set your minimum rate for a 60 mins class to £25, then if there is a cover request for a 60 mins class that is paying less than £25 then you won’t even receive the request. You receive requests for anything on or above the minimum rate you set. Alternatively, you can keep your minimum rate at £0 which means you will receive all the cover requests and you can choose whether to accept or decline them as they come in.
