The following article outlines how to add a project directly in Nexonia.
If your Nexonia account is integrated with your ERP or accounting platform via web services - Intacct, NetSuite, QuickBooks - your customers and projects must be imported directly from those platforms. Any new customers and projects must be added in your ERP and then synced into Nexonia. Please refer to the following article:
- Synchronizing the Nexonia Configuration with Intacct
- Synchronizing the Nexonia Configuration with NetSuite
- Synchronizing the Nexonia Configuration with QuickBooks Online
- Synchronizing the Nexonia Configuration with QuickBooks Desktop via Web Connector
Adding the Project
Nexonia's Customer module manages a hierarchy of customers (parent) and projects (child). Depending on your configuration, these values may be repurposed to reflect other reporting dimensions - such as clients and jobs or locations and business units. All Nexonia modules require at least one customer and project to be in place for the users.
Administrator-level role permission is required in order to manage customers and projects.
To start, log in to Nexonia as the Administrator and click on the Customers module in the top menu bar.
Under the Customer tab, scroll to the customer you want to add the project under and click on the link that is the customer's name.
You'll be inside the Customer record now and see a General and a Projects tab. Click the Projects tab.
To add additional projects, either click the Add button or you can clone an existing active project (clone icon to the left of the project) and modify it.
You'll see a General tab of information to fill in for the project. The following values are commonly used:
Name (required) = project name
Type (required) = select the project type
Manager (optional) = project manager, can be used in configuring approval workflows and in setting role permissions
Timesheets/Expense Reports = enables the project to be used in the Nexonia modules you subscribe to; must be set to "Yes" in order to enable.
Timesheets/Expense Reports Billable (required) = default billable behaviour for this project in the listed module (i.e. timesheets or expense items):
- Yes = always defaults to billable
- No = always defaults to non-billable
- Overridable = allows the user to change the default in the timesheet entry or expense item
Timesheets/Expense Reports Memos = memo requirement for this project. Defaults to follow the memo requirements for the task or expense category
Regions (required)= must be enabled for at least one Region
Status (required)= Active or Inactive, must be Active to be used
Number (optional) = internal ID for the project, can be used in reporting or exports
Click the Apply button to save and create the project.
To Edit a Project
From inside the Customer record, click the Projects tab.
Locate the name of the project you wish to edit, and click it.
Click the Edit button, which will open the fields for editing.
Make your updates to the project and click Apply to save your changes.
