This article details the basics of how to create new Projects and manage Projects within your organization.
Projects Menu and Projects List
The Projects menu provides access to the Projects list screen. From the Projects List screen, you can select a Project to manage or take action on, search for a Project, or create a new Project.
NOTE: Only Administrators can access the Projects menu and can manage Projects within your organization.
By default, only active (or open) Projects are displayed in the list. Use the Search tool to find inactive or closed Projects.
