Industry Label

The list of contents:

What’s the benefit of using the industry label? 

The industry label helps you customize the term used to describe your fieldworkers depending on the nature of their work and the industry your business operates in. So instead of having a category with the name “Fieldworkers” on the left side menu, the category will be holding the new name you’ve entered. For example, Drivers, Painters, Technicians, or Babysitters. So, “Drivers” can be the name of the fieldworkers’ category for a car-hailing business and so on. 

How to set your industry label?

Go to Settings > Company Settings > Business Details

How to set the industry label

Scroll down to the “Industry label” > Enter the name as a singular and plural

The term you entered as plural is the one that will be on the left side menu representing the fieldworkers’ category. For example, the fieldworkers’ category name is “Hairdressers”.

How the industry label affects the customer experience? 

Your industry label will be visible to your customers when they use the customer portal. That’s why updating your industry label reflects positively on your customers’ experience, as they will view the fieldworkers’ category name while booking. When the customer portal opens, the name of the fieldworkers’ category appears among the other 3 tabs on the top of the page, so if your fieldworker’s category name is “Drivers”, there will be a “Drivers” tab on the top, next to sign up and login buttons. So the fieldworkers’ tab can be checked before logging in or signing up. 

The fieldworkers' category name

If your customer logs in to the customer portal, the fieldworkers’ category name will be listed in the dropdown menu on the top right of the page.

Select the fieldworkers category nameThat will take your customers to a new page, including all your fieldworkers.


The customers can view all the listed fieldworkers’ profiles. When a specific fieldworker is selected, there will be a “Book Fieldworker” button under the profile photo. So by applying the same example, the customer will find a “Book Driver” button.

*Please note that your industry label doesn’t affect the customer portal and the app from the fieldworker’s view, which means when a fieldworker logs in to the customer portal or the app, the fieldworkers’ category name won’t be visible from that perspective*
