User roles:  ✔ Application Administrator   ✔ Project Administrator   

The Project Labels & Field Names page allows you to customise the terminology used within the Projects module, aligning it with your organisation's unique language. On this page, you can change the names of different parts of the Projects module to match the words your team uses every day. This means you can call each field by a name that makes sense in your company. It is all about making the software easier and more straightforward for everyone in your team to use.

To access the Project Labels & Field Names page, navigate to the  Administration Console from the drop-down menu under your Avatar.

From the Administration Console, navigate to the Project Settings section of the page and select Project Labels & Field Names.
