Our accounting department uses project numbers that we need to add to all our reports. Currently we would need to set the project name to "12345678 project name" in order to have the number on all reports. The problem is that on the time sheet view, it will only show "Customer / 12345678 proje..." making it harder to use for our employees when entering their ours in the correct project, since the task names are often very similiar or even identical.
Would it be possible to add a project number field to each project that is shown seperatly?

somehow missed your comment. Sorry about that. Currently our accounting department has an admin account as well (not great either - maybe another role would be nice that just can generate reports and not change everything like the admin can) and just generates the reports they need themselves. The problem is, I don't think there is a way to show the project description on our reports alongside with the project name right now.

How do you pass this information (project number) between MrTickTock and your accounting department? Is this manual process or something automated?
How about storing project number in description on MrTickTock side?
Description is available from project popup window and not visible directly in other places so it does not pollute UI and does not make it harder to read.
