What is an office lead?
An office lead is an employee within your company who is the designated point of contact when others join your company without an invitation. The office lead receives an email notification when individuals join your company on BuildingConnected so they can confirm or deny employment. This feature is designed as a security measure to ensure all company information remains internal to those employed by your company.
How to find and designate office leads
The first person to create the company account or any new offices is automatically selected as the office lead. Each office is required to have at least one office lead, but there is no limit to how many office leads can be selected.
To find and designate an office lead, begin by clicking on your company name in the left-hand menu.
If applicable, click on the office you would like to designate a lead for.
Office leads have the boxed checked in the “Lead” column on the “Employees” tab. To designate or remove a coworker as an office lead, simply check or uncheck the box accordingly.
Please note that office leads can be altered by anyone in your office, and any changes to office leads will automatically save across the platform (this information is visible to your company only). Individuals who are added and removed as office leads will not receive an email notification.
If an office lead denies employment to someone attempting to join your office, the individual will appear on your “Employees” tab but will not have access to company information or any pages on the left-hand menu. For instructions on how to remove individuals from your company on BuildingConnected, please reference the article, “How to add and remove coworkers from your company on BuildingConnected.”
If you find that your existing office lead(s) is no longer working with your company and you are looking for verification, please contact BuildingConnected Support and we can help advise on further steps to verify your account.
