What is a Project?
Understand what a Project is in ProcessMaker Platform.
A Project is a way to organize assets and collaborate with others to fulfill the same goal. Projects makes it easier and more efficiently organize assets to develop the same business solution:
- Manage assets more easily by organizing them into one Project for all Project members to easily locate and design together.
- More easily reuse those assets within the business solution.
Projects save time, enhance design productivity and consistency, and more easily maintain the final deliverable.
The following asset types are available for a Project:
When creating an asset, optionally assign it to a Project.
When adding an existing asset to a Project, the original asset or a copy of that original may be added. When a copy is added to a Project, changes made to that copy do not affect the original.
Easily manage Project members who are designing within that project goal. As a Project member, that Designer can work with any asset within that Project without user permissions for any asset type. For example, a Project member does not need user permissions for Processes, Scripts, and Screens to work with those asset types while a member of that Project. A user with no asset-type permissions may use assets in the following circumstances:
- That user is a member of a specific Project. That user may only use assets within the Project to which that user is a member. All members in a Project may use the assets within it. Project membership does not grant viewing assets not within the Project unless that user has user or group permissions for individual asset types.
- That asset, or a copy of the original asset, has been added to that specific Project.
Note that Projects do not invalidate user permissions. For example, if a user is not a member of a Project but has Process user or group permissions, that Designer may work with any Process in that organization.
