Routing an Assignment

Engage workers through assignments

WorkMarket provides several different options for routing and inviting workers to your assignments -




  • Post to Marketplace - This option makes your assignment available to WorkMarket’s general marketplace. Any worker on the platform will be able to access and apply to your assignment as long as they meet the requirements.
  • Send to Specific Talent - You have 3 different options for sending to specific talent. You can select whether the worker must apply or if they will be automatically assigned. Use any combination of the 3 to best fit your needs -
    • Talent - Route to individual workers
    • Labor Clouds - Route to any of your Labor Clouds
    • Vendors - Route to companies looking for work, rather than the individual worker 





  • Auto-Invite - Using WorkMarket's matching algorithms, this feature will invite the best workers based on criteria such as their job title, skills and scorecard. You won't need to spend time vetting each individual worker, as auto-invite will do the work for you.
  • Browse Talent Marketplace - This option will send you to the "Find Workers" page, allowing you to use the search tool to find the exact workers you need.


Additionally, from your assignment dashboard, you can select up to 50 assignments at once and apply the same routing conditions to all and send at one time. The interface and functionality is the same as sending at the time you create the assignment.

I am trying to invite a worker to an assignment but I am receiving an error message, why?

You can invite a maximum of 200 workers to a single assignment and 100 workers to a bundle. Once you have reached the maximum, you will need to copy the assignment to send it to any additional workers. You may cancel the initial assignment prior to copying if you need access to the allocated funds or terms.
