Standard Projects vs Advanced Projects

Use project records to organize your resources and manage the time required to complete tasks for company projects.
Note: You must be on NetSuite Limited or NetSuite Mid Market in order to upgrade to the Advanced Projects module.

Standard Projects are used to track projects independently from customers including activities, time tracking, and billing.

Advanced Projects are used to track projects during your sales process, define and manage project plans, assign resources, and integrate project activity into your order-to-cash process.
