Subcontractor groups are used to cluster subcontractors that share important features and/or attributes. Examples of grouping include roles (e.g Project Managers) or geographical location (e.g London) or a combination (e.g Project Managers in the London area).
It is possible to add a user as a Partner Responsible for each group. The user needs to have access to the Partner module. You are free to choose how you wish to group your subcontractors.
