Subprojects always belong to a parent project and are like projects in the sense that they are also a way to group resources together dynamically. However, they differ from projects as they do not affect billing instead relying on their parent project for billing purposes. Subprojects cannot have other subprojects attached - only parent projects (a.k.a. projects) can have subprojects.


A great example of how subprojects can be useful is when acting as an application service provider (ASP) for Sinch Products. The ASP can create a subproject for each new customer and simply remove the subproject if the customer leaves. Usage for each customer is measured separately. 


Accessing and managing Subprojects

You can access subprojects from the Projects top menu or from the Projects page in the Sinch customer dashbaord:
