A-SCEND Tip of the Month 

“I cannot access my project because the Manage or Select button is missing.” 

If your engagement is in the Report Creation status or is otherwise out of sync with Salesforce, the ‘Select’ or ‘Manage’ buttons no longer show on the engagement list.  This might make you think you can no longer access the project, but that is not true. You still have access to that engagement and this video tutorial will show you how! The following tutorial will walk you through how to access those engagements.
