Create and Edit Field Values


Field Values is a broad category consisting of five smaller categories:

  • Project Type, 
  • Contact Type, 
  • Team Role, 
  • Staff Dept, and 
  • Credit Cards.

You'll access these categories to add information about your projects, contacts, and team. You can also add company credit cards and grant staffers access to them, so they can create credit card expense entries in BigTime.

This article will explain how to access Field Values and describe its five categories. We’ll also provide links to detailed articles for each category discussed.
