What is it?
Projects are at the heart of Proteus. A project is created when a proposal has been accepted and a contract has been agreed. The new project sets out the scope of work, budget and resource required to complete a piece of work. It also sets out the various stages and allows the project leader to see immediately the status of the project.
On Proteus the projects field is where you can instantly access all the projects which have been created. It gives an overview of the projects with status and also allows you to create new projects.
Why is it Needed?
The project dashboard allows the user to see at a glance what projects have been created and where they are in terms of activity. It allows the user to create new projects and to drill deeper into existing projects to see exactly where the project is in terms of resource, time and financial resources. This is essential in project management both from a resource and finance perspective.
How do you Edit?
If you want to create a new project then you can click on the blue ‘create project’ button which will take you to a set up project screen where you can add a new project.

Once the project has been set up it will appear on the dashboard.
Clicking on the drop down under Projects allows you to filter how you see the screen - you can choose from - all, active, complete, cancelled or closed out which will filter the project view.
