Connections in Tradify are defined as someone who is not in your company, such as a subcontractor. When you create a connection in Tradify, you and your connection can:

  • view basic contact information
  • share job information  
  • schedule each other for appointments

You can add a new connection through your Connections tab, via the scheduler when creating an appointment, or via the staff and connections list when sharing job information. 

How do Connections work?

Adding a Connection

To create and manage your connections, you can use the Connections tab. To add a connection:

  1. Head to the Connections tab in the navigation bar to the left of the screen.
  2. Select Create a Connection.
  3. Enter the email address of your new Connection. 
  4. When you're ready to send the Connection request, select Send Invitation to Connect.

  • Pending Connections

Note: At this stage, you cannot remove a pending Connection. 

Deactivating a Connection 

To deactivate a connection:

  • If I am subcontractor and I want to add the Main contractor to connection it will work ?

    How correct would this way be or do we have to proceed in another way?

  • Hi there! You can share the details with anyone you're working with, the language isn't specific to whether they are the subcontractor, or the main contractor. 

    The only when scheduling appointments, the email says 'has scheduled an appointment in for you' so if you're just sharing the appointment with them, it sounds like you're scheduling the appointment in for them. 

    Let me know if that helps!
