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 London area).
It is possible to add a user as Partner Responsible for each groups. The user needs to have access to the Partner module.
