When a project moves between stages, Projector optionally sends a notification email to the PM Team and a subset of users determined by cost center. This is useful for tracking the progress of projects as they move through the project life cycle. You manage these notifications and whether they should be sent via the Stage Editor. Each email lists the affected project, its engagement, the original stage and the new stage.

Emails are only sent when an existing project is updated. Not when a new project is created.
