The Projects Pipeline
The Projects Pipeline is designed to make it easy for you to track the progress of your Projects at a glance. You can clearly see which Projects are nearing a close and which are languishing and therefore intervene to move them along.
You can also filter the Projects Pipeline by various criteria for example if you have multiple ongoing Projects with one customer you can filter the Projects Pipeline to only show those Projects and thus at what stage each respective Project is at.
The Pipeline view is intuitive and interactive, each circle represents a Project and the larger the circle the greater the value of the Project. By clicking on each Project you can view and edit its details and you can also drag it up or down the Pipeline to a new stage.
Filtering the Projects Pipeline
- To begin click on the ‘Projects Pipeline’ panel on the left hand sidebar
- Now click the Add filter button
- A drop-down list of various filters will appear, in this example we will filter Projects by the total of value of the Project being greater than £100,000
- So we will click on the filter ‘Value >’ and enter ‘100000’
- Then simply press enter and the filter will be applied
Note: All Projects conform to a pre-defined type which you can name. If the Project Type selected in pipeline view is not the one you want then simply change it to the correct Project type by selecting it from the Project Type option:
After you have selected the relevant Project type you can then further filter down the Projects as above.
Editing or changing the order of Stages
