What is the Program Console?
The Program Console is a powerful method for looking at information associated with a program, its subprograms, and projects in an easy to view table format. The Program Console closely resembles a Dashboard, but there are a few key differences:
- The content in the Program Console is controlled by what the user adds.
- The Program Console can only display work that is specifically designated as "is Program" and any associated children.
- You can view the Program Console in a hierarchical view where programs and subprograms can be expanded and collapsed.
This article describes the Program Console from the end user perspective.
1. The Program Console
You can view the Program Console by selecting it from the Project Navigation Menu if you are in a program. The initial display for the Program Console will be according to the specifications of layout created by an administrator. Once displayed you can edit the layout by removing, dragging, filtering and grouping columns. When the navigation menu is not in the pinned position, the Program Console will expand automatically to fill the page. See the article What does the Pin do? for more information about how the pin impacts the display of PowerSteering.
In the Program Console, you have the ability to:
- View program hierarchies.
- View the health and wellness of a program, its subprograms, and the projects included in the program.
- Add and/or remove work from a program.
- Edit tags and custom fields if you have the permission to do so.
- Export data for further off line analysis.
