What is a Project?
A project is a way of grouping multiple orders together, a bit like a folder. With a project, you can:
Set an account, dates, address, contacts and activities against the project
Add Orders to the project with different accounts and rental periods – this is great for when multiple customers are working on a collective project
Note: The Projects feature is currently only available for Pro+ subscriptions.
