Different Project Filters for Different Project Sorting Needs

Silverbucket offers different ways to categorize projects depending on your needs. You can get the overview you need by choosing the right program, portfolio, category and project tag. These are not mandatory to use, but they can be handy when you want to filter projects.

Program is best used for projects that are considered as sub projects. Program is usually perceived as an "umbrella project".

Portfolio is the best option when you have project portfolios and you want to sort through portfolios.

Category suits well for organizations who want to individualize projects, for example "development projects" or "maintenance projects".

Project tag is a more free-formed way to categorize projects. For example project tags could be "Major projects" and "Small projects".

Choose the right project filters to get the desired overview.
