In Business Central Dynamics 365 with the Progressus Advanced Project Accounting extension, you can perform common project management tasks, such as configuring a project and scheduling a resource, as well as providing the information needed to manage budgets and monitor progress. You can track machine and employee hours on the project by using time sheets. As a project manager, you have a good overview, not only of individual projects, but also of the allocation of employees, machinery and other resources being used in all projects.
Before you can use Progressus Advanced Project Accounting to manage projects, you must set up resources, time sheets, and projects.
The following table describes a sequence of tasks, with links to the topics that describe them.
