Create a Project (A&E Edition)

Adding a Project in CMap can be achieved by adding a Lead and converting it to a Live Project, or if you are not using the Leads module, a project can be added directly into the Projects area. 

  1. From your Dashboard, head to the Projects tab. Click the icon at the top of the grid and a pop-up box will appear.


    A Project can be standalone or a Project Extension. Click here to learn how to create a Project Extension. 

  2. Click Project and you will be taken to the Add your new Project form.

    Capture the estimated price when the project is at an early stage before you have enough information to complete a fee estimate.

    Estimated End Date

    The predicted end date of the project. 

    Note: This will determine the month CMap will finish forecasting fees.
