4. After clicking "Next" you can fill in the "Project Parameter" such as "Start" and "Estimated Completion Date". Click "Next" to continue
In this step you have the option to assign "KPI targets" and add "Custom Fields". If you are just getting started with ManagePlaces you won't have any "KPI" and "Custom Fields" defined, in that case leave the default selection "No" for both options and continue with the project creation. You can add "KPI" and "Custom Fields" at a later stage.
