Add a Custom Trade


To add or delete trade names from the company's Admin tool.


Adding trade names to your company allows you to associate companies in the company or project Directory with specific trades. Once you do this, you can filter your company record when creating and managing a bid in the project's Bidding tool. A company record can have as many trade associations as needed.
