NOTE: It is strongly advised that businesses using ]project-open[ internally agree on protocols and standards for the inputting of basic data. The data of any field is used not only in this screen, but is accessible to other operations throughout ]project-open[. Even though the fields are the most basic, subtle differences in user inputs could cause unexpected problems. Standardization improves our ability to handle these differences and allows for the most effective usage of ]project-open[.
