Working with user-defined enumerations

You use the User Defined Enumerations page to create, edit and delete user-defined enumerations, which are lists of values that are grouped under a given name. For example, you could have a user-defined enumeration called 'Region', which contains all of the regions in which you work.

To access the User Defined Enumerations page from the Powerproject Vision Home page, click Admin then click Enumerations.

Once you have created a user-defined enumeration, you can use it as a project, programme or user-level field - for example, to specify the region in which a project takes place or in which a user works - and to control security or workflow rules. You can also display up to five user-defined enumerations on the Projects page, and use them to filter the projects that are displayed in the list on that page.

As well as creating standard user-defined enumerations, you can create 'categorised' user-defined enumerations. These are user-defined enumerations that are associated with each other. When you create user-defined fields based on categorised user-defined enumerations, the value that you select in one field determines the values that are available in the other. For example, you might want to create a series of user-defined enumerations that define the location of a project in terms of country, county and town. Each categorised user-defined enumeration has a grey square icon to the left of it.
