Base allows you to add multiple agents on a mandate, as shown below.
If the 2nd agent displayed here should be in the 1st position, simply remove the 1st agent by clicking on the remove cross icon, and relink the agent again to move them into the 2nd position. Press save and allow the listing to be updated on your website.
