How Do Affiliate Accounts work ?

Affiliate Accounts Basics

  • You Can Pass jobs to Other vWork Accounts to Complete. These jobs can pass to as many sub contractors using vWork as you desire.
  • Once the job is complete, the completed job is recorded in all accounts.
  • As the source account you set the permissions of your Sub Contractors.

How Do We Set This Up ?

  • You need to be on a vWork Enterprise Plan.
  • All Sub Contractors must use vWork.
  • You need to enable this in your Account as below and you must set your sub contractors permissions.

1. Go To Settings > Affiliates > Create Affiliate

3. Add the sub contractor vWork email and other details (the email must be registered in their vWork account)
