In Trades Assist you can add labour bands and qualifications to your workers to make it easy to select the right worker for the job. If the band or qualification doesn’t already exist, you have the ability to add it in.
This article will show you how to add a new band or qualification using Master Data in the Admin Console.
Tip: Make your Bands generic with descriptions that indicate the specialisation and experience of your workers, like Apprentice Plumber or Senior Electrician.
