Provisioning New Users

The best way to get started is to provision new users, which grants your team members the proper access they need to do their jobs quickly and easily in Projectplace. There are three ways to create new users in Projectplace: 

  1. Account administrators can add new users to the account. You can invite up to 100 people at a time.
  2. Anyone with Read and Write permissions to the Members tool can invite a new user to a workspace.
  3. You can run the user integration from Planview Enterprise One™ – Portfolio and Resource Management to invite users to create an account in Projectplace.

All methods will generate and send an invitation email to the new users requesting that they register in Projectplace, which will then create new user accounts.

Your Adoption Journey

Next, you should follow the path outlined below, leveraging all the available resources to help enable your teams. After completing the workspace and user setup step, it's up to you to decide which tool you want to get started with first- just click the text of the step you'd like to complete to learn how to do it. Your CSM is here to support you along the way, so please contact them if you have any questions.
