The Community tab in your Housecall Pro app is a place where you can send and receive jobs and grow your network in your area. You want to make sure your profile is 100% set up and optimized so you can increase your likelihood of getting jobs! You wouldn't buy an item or book a service without seeing a picture of it, right? Same goes for referring a customer to another Pro. You would never refer a customer who trusts you to another service professional without knowing who they are and the quality of their work and vice versa!
