Using enterprise fields, organizations can customize project management based on their own structure and processes. All users in the organization have access to a standard set of enterprise fields, allowing operations to be done across entire sets of projects.

Enterprise fields (including their definitions and lookup tables) are stored in the enterprise global template. Values assigned to a task, resource, or the project in an enterprise field, however, are not stored in the enterprise global template.
