To add a worker to the Employees list in the project's Crews tool for use with Procore's Field Productivity tools. 


For projects using Procore's Field Productivity tools, you can add workers to the project's Crews tools. The workers you add here are used in both the Crews and Timesheets tool. When you add a worker to Procore, the worker's record is also added as a contact in the 'Contacts' tab for both the Project Direct and Company Directory.
