Next enter the Primary report categories fields. These project fields do not appear if they are marked "Hidden" in Configuration.
Next enter the Account restrictions fields. By adding restrictions, you have more control over what accounts can or cannot be used with this project.

If you have previously set up account restrictions that you would like to use again, you can save time by copying those restrictions from another project.
