GOOD TO KNOW!!!

This feature is only available to specific permission levels. The default position/permissions setting provides access to supervisors or managers but not employees. **Custom permission levels can be set. (Pro Feature)

In any of the platforms (iOS, Android, or Web), you can continue to add as many subprojects as you'd like. You can also add subprojects inside of subprojects to get more analytical reports. You will be able to see reports showing the amount of time spent on each project and all subprojects.

If the address is added to the project or subproject, employees can get driving directions with their driving map app. You can also add Location-Based Reminders/Geolocations to subprojects as well.

Don't have an address? You can also copy and paste the longitude and latitude coordinates from google maps into the first address field. Click here to learn how!
