If all or most of the jobs in your project are located at the same address, enter that address in the Project location field. It will be automatically used for all phases and jobs of the scheduled project. You can modify this address by phase or by job.
If your project requires only a few moves, do not enter the address in the Project location field. You will be able to enter by phase or by job the address to which your colleagues will have to move.
The addresses entered in the Location fields are inherited: Project Location -> Phase Location -> Job Location.
