 In Beta
This tutorial details a feature that is only available to participants who opt-in to the Beta Program for the new Change Events line items view. For details, See (Beta) Change Events: New Change Events Line Items View.

Objective

To view, organize, and manage all your project's change events and change event line items.

Background

The Line Items tab in the Change Events tool displays a high-level summary of all of your project's change events. In this tab, change events can be grouped, filtered, searched, and edited. Columns can be displayed or hidden based on predefined views or your own customized configuration.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Read Only' level permissions or higher on the Change Events tool to view change event information. 
    • 'Standard' level permissions or higher on the Change Events tool to view and edit change events you created.
    • 'Admin level permissions on the Change Events tool to view and edit all change events.
  • Additional Information:
    • The custom view only appears once an edit has been made within one of the predefined views. The custom view always displays the most recent edit you have made and is unique to each individual user and project.

Prerequisites

Steps

  1. Navigate to the project's Change Events tool.
  2. Click the Line Items tab.
