Adding an External Partner or Client

  • Updated

Partners form the basis of CENTRL's external collaboration. In CENTRL's platform, you can easily view and add Partners if you have the appropriate permissions. By default, System Administrators have the ability to add partners. Users with Add/Edit Partner Access enabled in their user profile, also have this ability from Partner Space.
