Creating Projects

  1. To create a project, you need to be an Administrator or a Project Manager (Administrator or Project Manager user right enabled by your user account).
    In the example below, we are going to create a new project, with an Administrator user (in our example ’John Smith’).
  2. Please click on 'Project' in the sidebar on the left side to go to the Project Management module.
  3. Click on '+Create Project' on the top.



    The wizard helps you to set up your project in the quickest possible way. All you need to do is to complete 6 steps.

  4. In the 'Project information' step, please fill out the following fields: Name, Identifier, and as an optional fields Sub-project of, DHF and Description.
    The Project name and the project identifier need to be unique in your qmsWrapper instance. Please note, that the "PXXXXXXXXX" (X - numbers only) identifier format is reserved for private projects. For example, it's not available to create a project with the identifier 'P00001' outside your private project. However, it's available to create a project with the identifier 'PP0001'.

  5. In the 'Issue types' step, we are going to associate issue types with the new project.

You can also add all issue types with the double-arrow button. Click Next.

  6. In the 'Members' step, we are going to select members to assign them to project roles.
    Under 'Roles', we see the project role names and the number of assigned members. Please select a role.
    Under Non-members of the role, we can search and select users for the role. Please select a user and click on the 'arrow' pointing to the right. You can add all users with the 'double-arrow' button.
    Each role needs to have at least one member to proceed to the next step. If you skip this step, all 4 roles will be assigned to the creator user. In the example below, we are going to assign ‘John Smith’ to the role of PTO (Project Technical Officer).
    The project creator gets the Manager role automatically, if no users are assigned to the Manager role.

    Members

    Reporter – Users with Reporter role are allowed to manage only the basic functions and basic Issue Workflows. A Reporter is not able to manage a project, they cannot control Project Settings, nor the My Team functions, nor Processes. A Reporter user cannot be assigned as a Project Lead (Project Owner). 
    Developer – Users with Developer role have the same basic functions as Reporters. Developer users can change more Statuses in Issues, but a Developer user can’t manage a project. They cannot control Project Settings, nor the My Team functions, nor Processes. A Developer cannot be assigned as a Project Owner of a project.
    PTO (Project Technical Officer) - Users with PTO role can manage Project Settings, Processes, they can be assigned as Project Lead, but can’t control the My Team feature. PTO users control a wider Issue Workflow.
    Manager – Users with Manager role have full access in the Project module, they are allowed to manage both projects and teams through the My Team feature, they can control Project Settings, Processes, they can be assigned as Project Lead. Manager users have the widest Issue Workflow by default.

  7. In the 'Groups' step, we are going to select particular Groups which should be part of the project in order to be able to start Processes within it.
    Under ‘Groups’, wee see the Groups within company and the number of assigned members. Please, select a Group.
    Under ‘More members from group’ we see users who are part of that particular Group. Select users from group who will be part of the.
