Manage your leads better with the hipages Job Board app

There are a number of ways for you to receive leads: via our Job Board for Tradies app, email, text or through the Tradie Portal. While they are all useful, the most efficient way are push notifications via our Job Board for Tradies app.

The app lets you claim a lead, send and receive instant messages and images with customers to discuss job details, request recommendations and payments and much more.

I want the app – what do I need to do?

If you own an iPhone

1) If you don’t have it already, download the hipages Job Board for Tradies app for iPhone via the App Store.

2) Enable push notifications:

  • Go to your device’s Settings
  • Scroll down to find Job Board and tap
  • Tap Notifications
  • Toggle on Allow Notifications to enable push notifications.
  • Choose Alerts as your preferred push notification setting.

 

Turn off text notifications, so you don’t receive each lead on your phone twice

If you own an Android Phone

1) If you don’t have our app already, download the hipages Job Board for Tradies app for Android via the Google Play Store.

2) Enable push notifications on your phone Settings:

  • On your Android device, launch the Settings app
  • The icon for this app varies from device to device
  • Tap Application manager
  • On some devices, this might be called Apps
  • Scroll through the list of apps and tap Job Board
  • Depending on your device, either tap Show notifications to turn push notifications from Job Board on or off – or tap Show notifications and then Block All to turn push notifications from Job Board on or off.

3) Enable push notifications in the Job Board for Tradies app (you only need to do this, if you’ve previously turned off push notifications, otherwise they will be on by default):

  • Open the Job Board for Tradies app
  • Select Settings – either in the top right corner, or the bottom left corner, depending on the model you have.
  • You will then see Notification Popup with a box next to it. Click on this box to ensure it is highlighted in orange.

I want to turn off SMS – what do I need to do?

Turn off text notifications, so you don’t receive each lead on your phone twice.

  • login to your Tradie portal
  • click on invitation settings on the left hand side
  • Disable “Send SMS Invitations”
  • Click “Update Settings”

This will ensure that you’re getting lead invites faster via app notifications, plus you can manage all your leads and customer conversations within the app. You can claim your leads, exchange instant messages and images with customers to discuss job details, request feedback after a job has been completed and much more.
