Subprojects are used within TimeChimp to split large projects into manageable parts. This is useful when you have both an overall budget and a budget for each subproject.

Attention! In order to create (sub)projects, you need to have the role of administrator or project manager of all projects.

When to use subprojects?

The use of subprojects can be extremely beneficial when managing large and complex projects. By working with subprojects, you link new or existing projects to an overarching main project. You still record your hours on the subprojects and if you invoice, you invoice from the subprojects.

So, you use the main project for an overall overview. This is useful when, for example, you work with both an overall budget and a budget per subproject or when you work on a project for different customers.

How to use subprojects?

You can work with subprojects in the following way. Under projects, choose +new project. Set subprojects to 'yes' and then link the subprojects.

Under projects, you see an overview of all projects. You can group them by customer or by main project if you like. By clicking, you can open the project and navigate through the project structure.
