Projects have many applications but are primarily used in event-based activities. These can range from bespoke workshops to final major projects.

A unique feature in the smarthub Project tool is the option to make them restricted; meaning when active, only associated users have access to equipment attached to that project. The tool is also time based, meaning you can set the parameters for when and what is to be used.

Open projects let users link their bookings to a project without restricting access to any equipment. This works in conjunction with booking form approval and therefore can be very useful in controlling equipment usage as part of a course module or unit.
