Click Project management and accounting > Common > Projects > All projects. On the Action Pane, on the Project tab, in the Set up group, click Project group.

Use this form to select a different project group for your project. You can either decide a project group for another type of project, which will change the project type, or you can decide a project group that covers the same type of projects as the original project group.

If you change a project group for a project, the posting setup of the project changes.


If you change from an investment or internal project type that has no attached invoice project, you must enter an invoice project for the new project group.

The following table provides descriptions for the controls in this form.

Project ID
