Project management is one of the Business Central modules available under a standard user license. A few characteristic functionalities in the field of project management are listed below.
An important element of project management is the skilful use of resources. In the case of Business Central, the resource can be understood as a person (human resource) or a device / material. The functionalities included in Business Central allow you to combine resources into groups, register and edit their prices and track their location.
