Add, remove and edit clients

Time to read: 5 minutes 


Main Takeaways:

  • Clients are used in connection with reports, rate cards, and budgets to give you the best possible means of managing your projects
  • 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
  • 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

Establish Client Guest

When editing a clients profile, below their detail information section, you have the option of inviting a client as a guest user into Forecast. These guest users can only access the projects the client is assigned to and in those only the tasks that they were assigned to (as Assignees, Owners or Followers). (18)-Sep-08-2020-09-23-46-24-AM
