Form - Project Groups

Project groups


Groups make a complex project, such as the total restoration of a classic car, manageable because they divide the project into many smaller individual areas. How you group your project is up to you.

A good approach is to take the grouping from the parts catalogue. This already groups all parts into manageable assemblies. If you have entered the parts catalog in Easy Classics, you can simply copy the groups from it using our copy function.

In addition to the groups from the parts catalogue, you can add other groups that are important to you, e.g. <General, Tools, etc.>

Wichtig IMPORTANT! The groups from planning are the same groups that you use during project work. Otherwise, a target/actual comparison would not make sense or would not be possible. So make sure you're okay with the grouping!

Link to parts list

If you have taken over groups from a parts catalogue, then these are already linked. If you have created the groups manually, you can subsequently link a group to a group from a parts catalogue.

After the description field you will see an area that allows you to manage the link to the parts catalogue.

The name of the parts list is displayed in the first field, if not linked <Spare parts list not linked> is displayed. The name of the group in the parts list is displayed in the second field; if not linked, <Parts group not linked> is displayed.
