How do I update the parenting rules associated with an object type?

When you create a new object type in PowerSteering you identify how that item will be parented as part of the object type properties. Those parenting rules create a hierarchy, or parent / child relationship, and govern how objects can be organized within the Work Tree. This article describes how to update the parenting rules associated with an object type.

Note: A gated project object can only parent a gate.

Note: The Objects Types page is not editable on all sites. Please contact PowerSteering if you want this page to be editable.
