Talent Frequently Asked Questions

App Features

The POURED App is crashing. What should I do?


If the app crashes, please try to hard-close out of the application & open it again. If the problem persists, please email ef@poured.app and provide details.




How do I approve a shift in the app?


See video on how to Approve Shifts below. To approve a shift, go to “Shift Approvals”, which can be found in the menu bar (top left of the screen). Once in Shift Approvals, you will see a red check mark for all the shifts you need to approve. Once you have approved them, they will turn green. If you see that the times are incorrect, please click on the question mark to edit the shift times.




How can I contact the talent to ask questions?


You can contact and chat with our talent by clicking on their profile and pressing the “message” button. From there, you can access all of your conversations through the “Chat” tab. The talent will receive a notification when you send them a message, and will respond as soon as they can!




How do I know if the talent has accepted my shift request?


Click on the “Bookings” section, this will display 3 tabs, “Denied”, “Pending”, and “Confirmed.” Pending shifts mean that either the talent needs to take action, or, in the case of community bookings, you need to take action and select your choice.




How can I book the same talent for every shift?


You can book talent individually from your Roster, instead of sending out to the whole Roster. This is best for when you want to send a shift to a specific person. In order to do this, go to your roster, click the checkmark on their profile picture, and then select confirm. From there you will enter in the details of the shift and submit the shift. The talent will have the opportunity to accept or decline your shift. For a video on how to send an individual booking to someone in your roster, see below.




What is the Roster used for?


For a video on how to build a roster, see below. Think of the Roster as your starting line up! Your Roster will contain your favorite talent to work with, making them easily accessible to send shifts and contact when needed. You can add and remove talent from your roster through clicking the heart on their profile picture. This will kick off a Roster Request notification to the talent in which they can accept or decline your roster invitation.




How do I book talent for a shift?


To watch a video on how to book talent, see below. While using the POURED app, you have three options for booking talent: Community booking, Roster Booking and Individual Booking. The best way is to create a roster of talent and send bookings to your roster. The fastest way is to send a community booking, this option let’s the community opt in to the shift & you get to choose which one you would like. Community Booking - Phase 1- Create Booking: Under the “Create” tab, start by selecting “community”. Next, select all the dates that you are needing talent to work. Then enter the shift times for each day, the position that you are wanting to fill, and how many positions are open for that shift. Next, please add any shift details that the talent should know to be prepared for their shift and submit the community booking. Phase 2 - Select your candidate. In Phase 1, you successfully entered your shift dates and details to the POURED talent community in your area. Each talent will get a notification about the shifts and they will express interest in the shift. Please allow a few moments for talent to express interest. To see the status of the shift, click on the “Bookings tab”, then click on the Community Booking under “Pending”. Here, you will see all the talent who are available and interested in the shifts you created. They will be officially scheduled once you have clicked on the green “Accept”. **If you do not click on “Accept”, then you have not scheduled any talent for your shift. Roster Booking - In order to send a roster booking, you first must create a roster. This can be done by selecting the heart button on the explore page. Once you have created a roster, go to the “Create” tab, and select “Roster”. Then, enter the shift times for each day, the position that you are wanting to fill, and how many positions are open for that shift and submit the shift. Once you have submitted, the positions will be filled by your roster on a first come, first serve basis. Individual Booking - You can also book talent individually from your Roster, instead of sending out to the whole Roster. This is best for when you want to send a shift to a specific person. In order to do this, simply go to your roster, click the checkmark on their profile picture, and then select confirm. From there, you will enter in the details of the shift and submit the shift.

If a freelancer calls out of their shift, how can I find a replacement?


If POURED talent calls out for their shift, the best way to refill this shift is by sending out a community booking, or if you have another talent you would like to book that is in your roster you can book from roster. A community booking (“How to” video below, minute 1:25) is a great way to quickly find a replacement.

If the shift was confirmed and the talent did not show up to their shift please FIRST, send out a community booking (“How to” video below, minute 1:25) for the same day. You will need to adjust the time to give other talent time to respond. After sending out a community booking, please contact your POURED brand manager.
