Knowing how to navigate the Sidekicker dashboard is essential if you're wondering how you can apply for shifts, whether you have a shift coming up, or how many shifts you have completed.

The tab on the top that says "Categories" will allow you to filter your dashboard based on specific roles. To see all jobs you have access to, ensure you have selected "All".

Open Projects

When a job is first posted, it will appear in the "Open" section of your dashboard. All jobs located in this section are jobs you can apply for. Please note if a job doesn't appear in the "Open" section of your dashboard, this means your account hasn't been activated to work in the required category set out by the client. In this instance, you won't be able to apply for the job.


After you submit your application statement to a job, it will move from the "Open" section to the "Applied" section. Your application will sit in this section until it has been reviewed by the client. 

If the client accepts your application, the job will then move to the  "Active" section of your dashboard and you will receive a notification. If the client chooses not to select your application, it will disappear from the "Applied" section and you will be notified by email.


If the client accepts your application, the job will then move to the  "Active" section and you will receive a notification.

The "Active" section is also where you can see all the details of your shift and log your hours once you have worked the shift.

Awaiting Review

After you complete your timesheet the job will move into "Awaiting Review". This is where the client reviews and approves your hours for payment and they can leave a review and star rating.

Sometimes it can take longer than usual for a client to review your hours, but please know you will be paid regardless.


Once the job has passed through the previous sections, it will move into the "Completed" section. This allows Sidekicks to view the shifts that they have previously completed on their profile.


When you click on a job in your open projects, it will give you an option to pass or apply. If you click pass, the job will be sent to your "Passed" section. This removes the job from your "Open" section, allowing you to filter the jobs that you prefer.
