How do I create a project?

If you have an access role that allows you to create a project you can create a new project by clicking on the New Project button when looking at a list of projects. Additionally, if you have the Quick Add module installed you can create a project from anywhere within JForce.

How do I delete a project?

How do I create a person?

You can create a person within JForce by clicking on the People button on the top toolbar. Here you will see a list of people. If you have access to create people you can click the create new button to create a new person. Note that you will need to associate this person with a company and you can either create a Joomla! user for them at this time or link them to an existing Joomla! user.

How does JForce use Joomla! users?

JForce uses the standard Joomla! users table to store the email address, username, and password for each JForce user. This means that JForce works seamlessly with any other component that utilizes the Joomla! users table. JForce does NOT use Joomla! permissions (e.g. a Joomla! Super Administrator does not necessarily have admin privileges within JForce.) JForce allows you to assign users to specific JForce access roles that you can create and customize in the admin panel of JForce. We feel that this allows you to have the flexibility you require for your Joomla! users. You can create a Manager, or even Admin level access roles and assign a Joomla! Registered User that role without compromising the rest of your Joomla! site.
