Accepting a WorkForce Sub-Contractor Invitation

    When a host contractor company wants to work with you through WorkForce, you will receive an invitation through email. Accepting this invitation is important so that your host company can assign work orders to you that were generated on the ServiceChannel Service Automation platform. You, in turn, can then assign work orders to your technicians or sub-contractors.
