A ]project-open[ indicator is a specialized variant of a report that is concerned with quantitative queries into the database.  An Indicator report will return one numerical value, that value thus being the "indicator".  Like a Report, knowledge of SQL is a prerequisite to use Indicators. 

Indicator Fields

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[.  Ex. billing forms can be automatically generated with client information, reporting documents containing links to contacts within the client company, clicking on phone numbers allows automatic phone dialing with VOIP services.
