Working with projects and programmes

You use the Projects page to manage your Powerproject Vision projects and their programmes. The projects are displayed in a list, with each project's programmes available to view in drop-down rows immediately beneath the project. You can filter and sort the projects in the list and change the width of columns in the list.

To access the Projects page from the Powerproject Vision Home page, click Projects.

The Projects page displays only those projects that you are able to view according to your user group's access rights; if you are the Admin user, all projects are displayed.

A Green flag icon appears in the Status column against all programmes against which comments have been recorded.

A Exclamation mark icon appears in the Status column against a programme if an error has occurred.

A Notes icon appears against all projects against which notes have been recorded. Click this icon to view and edit a project's notes.

If a project-level user-defined field has been selected in the Project Hierarchy UDF field, on the Project Hierarchy page, a summary bar is displayed in the bar chart for each value in the selected user-defined field, and projects are grouped according to what has been selected in the user-defined field for each project. For example, if you select a user-defined field that is used to specify the geographical location of each project, a summary bar is displayed for each location and the projects that take place in that location are grouped beneath the summary bar:

The hierarchy of a 'location' user-defined field, displayed on the Projects page

You can expand and contract the hierarchy of the selected user-defined field in the same way you expand and contract the project and programme hierarchy.

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