Link Portfolio Financials and Project Management Projects for Quick Navigation

For accounts with access to Procore's Portfolio Financials and Project Management products, Project Admins can now link projects between the two areas of Procore. After a project has been linked, an 'Open' button shows on the Home page of both products, which will allow users to quickly switch between areas without needing to log in again or manually navigate to the other site. See Steps - Linking Projects below. 
Note: Linking Portfolio Financials and Project Management projects together does NOT transfer, copy, or show project data from one area to the other.

Add Users from the Directory Tool to Portfolio Financials

Instead of needing to add users in two different directories for a project that exists in both Portfolio Financials and Project Management, users with 'Admin' permissions to the project's Directory tool can now add users from the Directory tool to Portfolio Financials. See Steps - Sharing Users below.
