Creating and Using a Project Engagement

You can create a project engagement in two ways. One in the Dashboard on the Projects page of each client, or in the SmartVault Connected Desktop.


  1. Ensure you have customized your default project template(s) to fit your workflow and document storage needs. (learn more)
  2. If you have multiple project templates, ensure they have unique names.
