This is the area where admin and designers can Create New Customers, Create Projects and view all the projects on the Project Board.

This is the area in the back-end or front-end of your WordPress install that helps keep your projects organized using a list of Clients and Projects. It also will display all of the versions of a design under a project. If clients are logged in they will be able to see their projects, and only their projects.

The name of the project. This is also what DAS uses to attach design posts for organizing purposes. When you create a new design post you will have to select this. For example, the Project names are in blue in the thumbnail example.

A post attached to a Client and Project. The design post page is where the design will be attached. This is also where the client will go to approve the design, make comments about the design or check out and pay for.

DAS Client
This is WordPress role we have created to help give your clients the restrictive capabilities when logging in to see and approve their designs. This role does NOT have to be selected for your clients. You may want them to have a different role in WordPress for other special capabilities. **NOTE** If you use something other than DAS Client please be sure to create a test client account and make sure they only have access to what you want them to.

DAS Designer
This is WordPress role we have created to help give your Designers the restrictive capabilities when logging in to see and approve their designs. This role does NOT have to be selected for your designers. You may want them to have a different role in WordPress for other special capabilities. **NOTE** If you use something other than DAS Designer please be sure to create a test client account and make sure they only have access to what you want them to.
