Prospect Projects

Handling prospect projects in Silverbucket is usually done with

1) Probability value in Project's Dashboard
2) Soft booking (=tentative allocations)

Probability Value & Prospect Projects


Every project that is marked with a probability of 0-99% is considered a prospect project.

The value can be adjusted in the Project's Dashboard

The probability-value can be used to represent the chances of the project happening, for example.

As projects are marked as prospect projects, you can use Silverbucket's filters to further differentiate these projects from actual, in-production projects by using the project type filters.

With these filters we can sort all the projects that are marked with <100% probability


The project > listing and project > allocations -views indicate the probability of the project

Soft Booking & Prospect Projects


If you don't feel like fiddling around with the project probability, you can always use Silverbucket's soft booking -functionality to indicate the prospect-side of the project.

Resourcing the project with tentative allocations indicates that the resourcing is not set in stone and anything can happen with that project.
