2. Nail Down Those Compliance Requirements (~ A Quick 3 Minutes)

Super important alert! 🚨 You've gotta make sure your contractors are cleared to take on work.

  • Mark 'em compliant to green-light work.
  • Pick the types of jobs they can do.

Got that down? Great! If you're feeling extra, dive into Settings > Compliance to set up document requirements like insurance or licenses. This bit's optional but can really rev up your HeyPros mastery.

3. Dispatch Work Orders Like a Boss

Ready to send work flying out? Here's where the magic happens.

HeyPros will then send out a magic link to the chosen ones, and before you know it, you'll have contractors lining up!
