Projects are the core of MyClientSpot. They help users organize and manage their work by allowing teams to break down a larger goal into smaller, more manageable tasks that can be assigned to team members and tracked for progress.
Both expenses and time entries are recorded against projects and can be summed to provide a running total of the effort and expenses that have been accrued.
With projects, users can set deadlines, establish priorities, and collaborate with others to ensure that work is completed efficiently and effectively. Projects also provide a way for users to monitor their progress and identify any potential roadblocks or issues that may arise.
The project has many properties that can be configured. Most are optional and can be left blank if uneeded. Of particular importance is the “Responsible” setting where users are assigned to the project. This give a clear understanding of who is doing what and enhances accountability and makes it easy for team members to know their responsibilities.
Users listed as responsible will always be able to view the project it’s related records.

Breaking a project down into tasks helps to clearly define and understand the project’s scope. Each task represents a piece of the project’s final deliverable, so having these clearly defined helps everyone involved understand exactly what needs to be accomplished.
Tasks can be tracked, monitored, and controlled efficiently. Project managers can determine if a task is completed or not, identify which tasks are behind schedule, and allocate resources as needed.
