4.1.4. Projects table

Submitted by pbrunet on Tue, 06/07/2011 - 09:58

The Projects table (which is identical to the one shown in the lower section of Organisational unit pages) has 8 columns by default:

  1. Code
  2. Title  
  3. Active phase
  4. Organizational unit
  5. Budget spent  
  6. Time
  7. Activity
  8. Category

The first four columns (Code, Title, Active Phase and Organizational unit) contain written content, the following three columns (Spent budget, Time and Activity) contain diagrams and the last column (Category) contains icons.

Updating the information contained in the Projects table
All the additions and modifications which you or other users make in real time in different projects and organisational units are not constantly and automatically recorded in the Dashboard and its different sections, such as the Projects table.
In order to have the most updated version of the information recorded since the last time the Dashboard was used, click on the “Reload project” button located below the table heading.

While the table is being updated a loading bar is displayed:


N.B.: The Projects table in the Overview page of Organisational units does not have a “Reload project” button. There are two options to update this table:
-    Close and then reopen the page
-    Press the F5 key on your keyboard.

Grouping projects by type
By default, projects are listed by “NGO project” with Funding projects and Local partner projects grouped in relation to these.

If you select Funding project, this re-organises the list of projects so that they are listed by Funding project with NGO projects and Local partner projects grouped in relation to these.

If you select Local partner project, NGO projects and Funding projects are then grouped in relation to these.


Display/Hide related projects
It is possible to close each project’s related projects by clicking on the black triangle pointing down to the right in the Code column:

The black triangle is replaced by a grey-outlined horizontal triangle.


Expanding/collapsing all the projects
To save time, it is possible to open all the projects (of the type selected) contained in the table of projects. To do this, click on the “Expand all” button located under the table heading, to the right of the “Reload project” button.
All the projects related to those you have chosen to appear by default are now displayed:

To collapse all the related projects and leave visible only the projects which you have chosen to display by default, click on the “Collapse all” button located to the right of the “Expand all” button.

Bookmarking a project
In the Projects table, the first column on the left allows you to bookmark a particular project. To do this, click on the star which is grey by default.

The star will become yellow and a confirmation message appears in the bottom right hand corner of the screen.

A bookmarked project will automatically be part of your offline data base when you use the offline mode. For more information, see Offline mode, offline bases and bookmarked projects
