Our customer project feature lets you organize and view invoices by project when a customer pays by credit card or charges a purchase to their account. During the checkout process you can assign a project and even add one on the fly.  Later, you can filter a customer’s sales history by project in the Recent Sales History viewer or in the Transactions Report. Customer projects can also be created and managed in the Customers module.

With this update, we’ve enhanced our customer projects to include a short project description. You can add a description to new and existing projects in the Customers module and during checkout in the Invoice/Quote module.
