Add Project Groups


How to add project groups to better organise 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 project group 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 organise your company's projects into project groups, such as:

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

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • To add project groups, 'Admin' on the company's Admin tool.
    • To view project groups, 'Read-Only' or higher on the company's Project Groups tool.
      • In order to view a project that is associated with a project group, you must be granted access permission to that project. 
  • Prerequisites:
  • Additional Information:
    • There is no limit to the number of project groups you can create.
