Restricting Projects by Department in AP

Certify AP enables companies to assign projects to specific 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. 

This article shows you, a Certify AP employee with the Configure Budgets permission, how to assign projects to departments.

1. On your Certify AP account homepage, click Budgeting.



2. On the Budgeting tab, under Projects, select Department/Project Restriction.



The Associate Projects to Departments page contains three sections:
