Cause

Multi-Customer Project supports revenue recognition which means that you assign accrual methods on project tasks directly.

On project tasks there is no concept of products as you have on sales order items. Please don't get confused by products that you plan on project tasks which are normally the products you consume for the fulfillment of particular tasks.

Resolution

You do not assign product/product category to the revenue type 8 - Multi-Customer Projects, then it can be saved successfully.
