Add Programs


How to add programs (i.e. project groups) to better organize your projects. 


A project is a construction effort with a defined start and end date with specific goals and objectives that, when obtained, signify completion of the project. A program is a group of related construction projects that provide your organization with benefits from managing projects as a group, over managing projects individually. There are countless ways to organize your company's projects into programs, such as:

  • Region. For example, you might create programs for the four (4) regions of the U.S., such as 'Northeast', 'Midwest', 'South', and 'West.'
  • Sector. For example, you might create programs for the different construction sectors, such as 'Buildings', 'Infrastructure', and 'Industrial.'
  • Project Management. For example, you might create programs for 'Internal Projects' and 'External Projects'. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • To add programs, 'Admin' on the company's Admin tool.
    • To view programs, 'Read-Only' or higher on the company's Programs tool.
      • In order to view a project that is associated with a program, you must be granted access permission to that project. 
  • Prerequisites:
  • Additional Information:
