Getting the Application
The Android release of the Medirota app is compatible with most mobile devices running Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) onwards. It can be accessed here, or by searching for “Medirota” on Google Play. An iOS version for Apple mobile devices is also available.
When opening the app for the first time, you will reach a login page. The server is a version of the URL you use to access the full Medirota website appended with '/app' (i.e. for https://example.medirota.com the server would be example.medirota.com/app), your Medirota email and password remain the same.
Tap the ‘R’ icon in the top-left of the screen, or swipe inwards from the left hand side to reveal the main menu options
Throughout the app you can navigate forwards and backwards to view different days or weeks by swiping the screen left and right. You can also tap on the date at the top of the screen to bring up a date picker that allows you to jump directly to any particular week.
Swiping downwards will manually refresh the page if you have an internet connection. The rota can still be accessed through cached data if you re-open the app without a connection, but the information may be out of date as a result.
My Rota shows your activity for the current week.
Session information displayed includes the activity, session title, and any other clinicians included in the session. If a note has been attached it will be displayed here as an icon. The rings around each session are colour-coded in the following way:
- Dark green: available
- Light grey: standard
- Dark grey: oncall
- Light green: alias
- Black: blocked
My Oncalls shows your oncall activity one week at a time.
Activities provides an overview of all activity across the department, ordered by activity. The Filters icon in the title bar allows you to restrict this view to a certain group of activities only.
Oncalls shows who is allocated for each of the oncalls for the selected day.
People shows sessions for each staff member in alphabetical order, so you can see where your colleagues are working. Like the Activities view, you can use the Filters icon to show only certain groups of people.
Detailed session information

My Leave provides an overview of all of your upcoming leave bookings. You can tap into each one to view the details.
