1 What does the project module offer?

With the project module, you record all elements of your project. You indicate how long a project will take and set a total number of budgeted hours and budget. You also define the project milestones, each with its own start and end date, hourly budget and budget. You can immediately record all activities related to the project or link them to the milestones. You can also record external costs so that you can keep an eye on the budget.

Overview of your project

  1. By creating the project, you define the budget, hours and start and start dates.
  2. The project members are the employees within the organisation working on the project, the stakeholders are the client’s employees or other external parties.
  3. In the Project dashboard, you can see the status of your project at a glance.
  4. The milestones are displayed at the top of the project. Also, each milestone has its own tab with its own overviews.
  5. Record hours, activities and external costs.
  6. Invoice directly from the project.
