Edit Project Data

System Generated Project Fields
Decision Lens automatically creates a handful of fields for additional project data. You will see these fields on the Projects Page and can hide them from Column Settings if you do not need them.
- Dependencies: Add a dependency to a project from its details view. Dependencies are factored in when utilizing Strategy Navigator to understand when one project depends on another.
- Status: A field used to distinguish where a project is within its lifecycle and if it is pulling from the Budget(s) or not. Statuses can be customized from Portfolio Settings.
- Start: Indicates the Month and Year a project is requesting/will be requesting from the Budget.
- End: Indicates the Month and Year of a projects last request/will no longer be requesting from the Budget.
- Tags: Create Tags to group or classify projects. Projects can have multiple tags, where as the Category field only enables a single selection.
- Attachments: Attachments can be added from a projects details view at the bottom of the window.
Portfolio Owners can lock projects to ensure data is not modified. Projects can be locked in the Project Details view or from the ellipses menu next to a project name in the Projects, Score, Budgets, Schedule or Spend Plan pages.
Once a project is locked, its data cannot be manually updated. Owners can override data through import but will be warned on the Review Step of any projects that are locked and will be updated after import. Additionally, if a rank field was updated and cascading took effect, a locked projects rank would be updated accordingly.
