Client Management

PlanningPME enables managing your meetings and on-site activities on clients’ premises. The number of clients is limitless.

Why use the “client” function?

This function needs to be activated if you need to assign a client each time you create a new task and you wish to see the name of the client with whom you are working displayed on the screen.

How to activate the "Clients” function in PlanningPME Web Access

First activate the option in the menu Parameters -> Options -> Data and select "Activate customers".
You now have a "Client" menu under "Data".

Adding, modifying and deleting clients

To create a new client, click on "Add". Here you can enter all the information contained in the client record: Company name, contact person, physical address, e-mail address, etc.

To delete a client, select the name in the list, tick the box and click on "Delete". To modify a client, click directly on the client name in the list and modify the content

Importing your client database

In order to facilitate the operation and settings of the planning tool, you can now import your own data directly, such as resources, customers and projects. This will allow you to integrate your elements into the schedule and will save you precious time.
