People & Teams on Projects

Each project requires a  Project Manager , a team of additional contacts is optional. You can add further people to a project or job so that they receive notifications and get involved with the online project collaboration.

Adding team members (Staff or Clients)

Brightpearl will allow you to set one or more clients for a project if you require so that multiple staff members in your client’s company can follow project progress, or perhaps you want to invoice to a number of different clients in one project.

Each member of the project can be set with different permissions and each person  will be added as a member and listed in the People information box.
