Restricting Projects by Department in AP


Certify AP enables companies to assign projects to certain departments. Some companies may wish to restrict some projects to certain departments.

To enable these restrictions, use each department's list of assigned projects. When a department is not assigned to a project, employees in that department cannot use that project.
