Projects/Jobs


The Projects/Jobs module allow the user to group transactions in the system for the purposes of reporting and tracking. Usually, a project/job is created for a short term grouping need. For grouping transactions for a more permanent purpose, see classes.

To add a project to a document for tracking purposes, it must first be created and associated with a customer. Each project may have one customer but one customer may have many projects.
