When getting started with Rentman, you need to add or import your crew members to the Rentman database. Before doing this, you need to create your own folder structure so that you can keep a good overview of your crew.
You can add your crew members manually in the Crew members module, or import all of your crew at once by uploading a Crew members file (Excel or .CSV) that contains all of their information.
When your crew members are in the database, you can choose to group them by using tags.-
Create the right folder structure
A good folder structure is essential to stay organized and find your information faster. In Rentman, you are free to set your own folder structure in the Crew members module, like this:
We advise setting up a logical and consistent folder structure in the the Equipment, Contacts, Crew members and Vehicles modules before you start adding or importing your data.

You can create tags for specific skills of a crew member.
It's not possible to group your crew members by using the folder structure, because it's only designed to store your crew members in the Rentman database.
