Viewing your portfolio as a bar chart

You use the Portfolio Overview page to view your Powerproject Vision projects and programmes in the form of a Gantt chart - a bar chart that illustrates a project, or projects, graphically.

To access the Portfolio Overview page from the Powerproject Vision Home page, click Projects, then click Three blue and white horizontal bars, stacked vertically.

The bar chart displays each project and programme on its own row, with a spreadsheet displaying project and programme information. The spreadsheet displays the name, start and finish date and duration of each project and programme, plus the same columns that are displayed on the Projects page.

Projects are displayed like this: a bar with downwards-pointing projections at each end; programmes are displayed like this: a rectangular bar. The colour of each project and programme indicates its current status:

  • Grey - 'Checked out'.
  • Orange - 'Submitted' or 'Awaiting Approval'.
  • Green - All other statuses.

A red, dotted progress line, with the report date set to the current date, appears in the bar chart. The distributed percentage complete of each programme is displayed as a black progress bar; progress is displayed on each project as the average of the progress dates for each of the project's programmes:

Progress information is only displayed in the bar chart for programmes from which Business Intelligence data has been extracted since the latest version of Powerproject Vision was released.

Depending on your access rights, you may not be able to carry out all of the actions described below.
