To create a crew in the Crews tool.


Laborers on job sites are managed into groups called crews so they can be more easily organized. Each crew consists of workers who perform one or more scope of work (such as a crew of concrete workers) and is lead by a Crew Lead or Foreman, who is responsible for the crew’s work.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • ‘Standard’ or ‘Admin’ level permissions on the project's Crews tool.
      • To see workers added to a specific project:
        • 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the project's Crews tool.
        • 'Standard' level permissions or higher on the project's Crews tool AND 'Read Only or 'Standard' level permissions on the project's Directory tool with the 'Create Contacts' granular permission enabled on your permission template.
      • To see all workers across all projects, 'Standard' level permissions or higher on the project's Crews tool, 'Read Only' or above on the Company Directory tool and the configure setting "Can company employees be tracked on all projects?" enabled in the Company level Timesheets tool.
