  • Staff of Team

At the time of project creation by default Company Relationship Manager and Team Leaders will be selected as project manager and you can definitely deselect and select anyone as project manager.


Archive/ Unarchive Projects

Responsible project manager will be able to archive the project. Generally project should be archived at final status of project i.e. Collected status, but project manager if they wish to archive the project before he can do so for example project and completed and billed and payment is not recoverable then at Billed status also project manager can archive the project.

Project managers can always view the archived projects selecting archive filter. Further if he wish to unarchive the project he can do so, doing so the project will be available for working on it.


New Filter- Open ToDos

Open ToDos filter available on projects list page will help project managers and executives to view only those projects on which some ToDos are pending to work. By default open ToDos filter will be applicable and project list will display project on which some tasks are pending. However deselecting Open ToDos will display projects on which all ToDos are finished and it will also display projects on which you have not created any ToDos.
