Add a Worker

Also available on    


To add a worker to the Field Productivity tools Employee list.


This feature allows users to add workers (e.g. craft workers, temp laborers, and seasonal employees) without an email address to the Field Productivity tools Employee list. These workers do NOT need to have user accounts created for them in the Project or Company Directory. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • Admin level permission on the Project level Directory tool.
    • Standard level permission or higher on the project's Crews tool AND 'Read Only or 'Standard' level permissions on the Project level Directory tool with the 'Create Contacts' granular permission enabled on your permission template.
  • Additional Information:
    • The workers added will be displayed in the Employee List on the Crews and Timesheets tools.
    • Once a worker has been added to the Crews tool in one project, a user can begin to enter that worker in another project and the First Name, Last Name, and ID of that worker will auto-complete.
    • Workers can be viewed in the Project and Company level Directory tools in the 'Contacts' tabs. See Switch Between Views in the Project Directory and Switch Between Views in the Company Directory.
