Create Clients

Add, remove and edit clients

Clients are used in connection with reports, rate cards, and budgets to give you the best possible means of managing your projects. Additionally, creating and assigning clients to projects is a way to structure and extract client related information and insights. Adding a client to your client list does not invite a client into Forecast. At the end of this section we show you how to invite a client as a guest.

There are two ways of creating clients, the first is through the Admin Settings (requires Admin permissions), while the second one is from within projects and is available only to Managers and Controllers.

If your Permission Level is Admin

Step 1: Access the Admin panel and select Clients.
