Add a Custom Programme

Objective

How to add programmes (i.e. project groups) to better organise your projects. 

Background

A project is a construction effort with a defined start and end date with specific goals and objectives that, when obtained, signify completion of the project. A programme is a group of related construction projects that provide your organisation with benefits from managing projects as a group, over managing projects individually. There are countless ways to organise your company's projects into programmes, such as:

  • Region. For example, you might create programmes for the four (4) regions of the U.K., such as 'England', 'Wales', 'Scotland' and 'Northern Ireland'.
  • Sector. For example, you might create programmes for the different construction sectors, such as 'Buildings', 'Infrastructure' and 'Industrial'.
  • Project Management. For example, you might create programmes for 'Internal Projects' and 'External Projects'. 

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission:
    • To add programmes, 'Admin' on the company's Admin tool.
      OR
    • To view programmes, 'Read-Only' or higher on the company's Programmes tool.
      AND
      • In order to view a project that is associated with a programme, you must be granted access permission to that project. 
  • Prerequisites:
  • Additional Information:
    • There is no limit to the number of programmes you can create.
    • You cannot delete a programme from this list when it is assigned to one (1) or more projects in your company's Procore account.
