As we have projects, we can plan the functionality and tasks. we can able to make a list and prepare the functions from the customer requirement and needs. Here in our Project Management, we can Create a new project with its cost, type of billing, and the person who are all assigned as members to it. The members can have the access to see the project and work with it. They can't able to change any financial informations here in their allowed project. If the staff has administrator access. They can able to edit, and update the project.
