Programs

Programs are used to collect multiple projects under the same group. Programs allow you to

- keep track of multiple projects' financial numbers in one place
- see the current allocation situation from multiple projects' perspective
- act on these projects straight from the Program's Dashboard if necessary.

Programs have dashboards just like projects do; you can search for your program by using the Quick Search or by navigating over to Projects > Programs view.

Programs are located under the Projects header in the main navigation bar


In the opening view you get a list of multiple programs in your environment. You can filter the results as you wish; in the screenshot below we have listed all the programs that have the phrase 'RAM' in them.

By clicking any of the program's name you are forwarded to the corresponding Program's Dashboard.

6 results with the search phrase 'RAM'

In the Program's Dashboard we have four features available (make sure you have them visible by using the sliders under 'Select visible areas'):

- Basic information, which collects all of the linked projects' data together and shows it together

Basic Information section

- The S-Curve, which shows the current situation in form of a graph

S-Curve gives a neat glance on the resourcing situation and budgets


- Timeline, which lists all the linked projects as bars in the graph

The start dates and end dates are based on individual project's schedules


- Program Numbers, which collects together important financial data in numerical form

A very capable table about numbers for the program and its projects


- Program Allocation View, which is used to resource personnel and see their current situations in each individual project. The Program Allocation View allows you to make changes on the fly if you see any resourcing conflicts or anything that needs adjusting. By clicking on the chevrons next to the project name you see all the project members and roles attached to it.

Program's Dashboard separates active projects and passive projects automatically in different sections
