Why the Job board is useful

The Job board is a feature within Rentman that streamlines the process of filling job positions for your crew. Instead of individually inviting crew members to specific gigs, you can post job opportunities, and your team can proactively apply for these positions themselves.

In some projects and for some functions, the crew planner does not need to assign specific individuals to them. This is where the Job board comes in handy. Using the Job board means you don't have to manually pick and invite crew members for each job, which ultimately saves you a lot of time and effort.

The Job board is a versatile tool (also available on Rentman's mobile app) that enables you to effortlessly communicate job openings to your team, who can then plan their involvement in upcoming projects. In essence, the Job board simplifies and accelerates the job allocation process by empowering crew members to self-select and book themselves for the jobs that match their availability and skills.

Getting started with the Job board

To use the Job board, you first need to create a project and add crew and transport functions to your project.
