Getting Started with TeamDynamix Project Types

Overview

A project type is a main (and required) component of a project and is meant to classify the nature of the project. For example, is the project a new Software Implementation? Or, is it a Construction-related project? You’ll primarily use a project type to categorize your projects and you will likely create reports that use the project type field. It is common to create a pie graph showing the percentages of active projects by project type, as an example.

Additionally, the Project Type serves as a way to review project requests. Each Project Type can have a defined evaluator that is responsible for reviewing the project request of each type. A more advanced approach can also be taken for any Project Type where, based on the Project Type, the project request can enter into a workflow where it is evaluated by multiple people in sequence. All project requests need to go through a workflow evaluation before become actual projects. However, the complexity of the workflow can vary by Project Type. Strategic, complex, and high-budget projects may go through an advanced governance process. Alternatively, less complex and lower budget projects may just have one or two steps to an evaluation before getting approved.
