InLoox PM 8 allows you to share the information between different projects in a very simple way. Your multiple project management is thus much more effective. Insert the individual projects with the planning, so called the collection of projects, into a single one to organize them easier. You can view all the information from the inserted projects and analyze how it affects the whole multiple project management. Each new project that you add to the project group will be called subproject.
Create a new project or open an existing one to add a new project group.
For more information on how to create a project see Create a project.
As an alternative, you can click the plus sign next to the subprojects. Use also Drag&Drop to drag a project to the area below.
A project can be assigned only to one group.
Now you can see the added project with its own color in the new project group.
All subprojects that were inserted to the project group will be displayed as a summary task with its own color in the Gantt chart. The subproject will be subordinated in the activity list. You can change its position by clicking arrows Move up or down, in the Action group, on the Project group tab. These features can also be fined on the side panel next, in the Project group area. as a subproject is a summary activity in the chart you are not able to edit or dissolve it. You can expand the outline to show all planning elements from the subproject. You can edit or format each element from the outline. Link the planning elements from the different projects together.
Any editing or formatting made in the colletion of the projects to the subproject will be displayed in the subproject's source. The editing or formatting information you have applied in the subproject's source will be updated in the colletion of the projects.
If the user is authorized to read a project or a planning, he can view only the start and end date of the projects in the project group.
