Step 4: Set up Projects

The Project level in FunctionFox is the secondary tier of organization within your account. If the term 'Project' doesn’t suit your name conventions, you can customize your naming preferences for your account (common examples include: Phase, Job, or Campaign).

To add new Projects:

  1. Navigate to 'Projects > Manage' in the left menu.
  2. Select the client from the drop-down menu you wish to create a project for.
