ML Work Orders™ Users with Administrative Permissions have the ability to Manage Projects. Projects allow you to group multiple work orders together. 


For example: A project may require one work order for the electrician, one work order for the carpenter, and one work order for the mechanic. This will allow you to run reports on specific projects, including all associated work orders.
