Creating and editing customers requires the Tempo Account Administrator permission.

You can connect your accounts to customers. For example, if you have multiple accounts containing data for a single customer, you can create a new customer and assign those accounts to it.


Customers are an important partner to Tempo accounts. By creating customers in Tempo, you can associate customers with your accounts. This in turn allows you to filter by customers within Tempo reports – and to consolidate customer-specific data across many different accounts when reporting on logged or planned time.
