Submit a project change request [in-depth guide]
Guide contents: Who can submit a project request for review? | Using a project change request form | Next step
Project change requests allow members of your internal team or your clients to initiate a change of scope or content of a project. The project change request allows you to make changes to current spec sheets & project custom fields or request the addition of different specs.
Each project change request form will also have a custom approval process defined for it. This approval process may involve several different people reviewing and adding additional information to the change request, or a simple email notification to team members of the existence or approval of a change request.
Who can submit a project request for review?
Free & paid users can submit project change requests, however, there is some setup involved prior to this step & possibly some limitations based on which user is logged in.
NOTE: Free & full users can add files at the end when submitting a project change request, however, you can limit who can add additional pre-defined spec sheets at the end of the request form based on security group rights.
A free user in Workamajig is defined as a contact whose record has login credentials populated, is an active contact, & has 'free login' checked. Free users will submit project change requests via the client portal, a condensed single page centered around the creation of new requests or for access for information on ongoing projects.
When a free user submits a project change request, Workamajig will automatically match it to the client record they are linked to.
Free users can submit project change requests for projects where they are on the project team.
What if things change? For example, if you change which client the contact is linked to, then the free user contact will no longer have access to old jobs for the previous client, but they will for the client they are currently linked to.
A project change request can be submitted from the client portal, click on 'project' to show project details then 'change request'.

A full user in Workamajig is defined as either 1) an active employee record with login credentials or 2)an active contact record with login credentials & 'free login' NOT checked. Both of which are counted as paid users in the system.
Full users can create project change requests for any client.
Full users can access all prior project change requests and projects.
