Ndizi lets you select a front-end page of your site, where your clients can authenticate and view their details, invoices, projects (including time totals for each, but not the individual time reports), and each task (with status) assigned to their projects. They can also add new tasks, which are then added to the back end for you to modify, clarify, and assign as-needed.

Currently, Ndizi supports storing:

  • Clients
  • Projects (which belong to clients)
  • Tasks (which belong to Projects and can be assigned to a WordPress User)
  • Time Entries (which belong to Projects and can be assigned to a WordPress User)
  • Invoices (which belong to Projects, and [soon] can be assigned time reports)
  • Messages and File Attachments, (which will shortly be) attachable to Projects and Tasks
