Platform Admin Screen Basics

What Can I Do on the Platform Admin Home Screen?

The Overview tab, which is the Platform Admin home screen for both users and administrators, shows product tiles for each available Planview application environment connected to Platform Admin, a link to change your Planview ID password, and a link to sign out of Platform Admin. Anyone with access to Platform Admin can click an available Planview product tile to launch that application environment in a new browser tab or window without needing to sign in separately to that environment.



Users will only see application tiles for which they have access to. For example an organziation can have an enviornment for LeanKit, ProjectPlace, and PPM Pro but a user may only have access to LeanKit and ProjectPlace so they will only see those two tiles. This will be the same in the isntance of Production and Sandbox environments as well.


For administrators only, The home screen will also include the following additional tabs in the top bar of the screen:

  • Users: Lists all users from all Planview application environments added to your Platform Admin, including each user's name, email address, status within Planview Admin, whether they are an admin, and which products they have access to. You can edit a user's details, delete users, and export the user list to a CSV file. 
  • Products: Shows product tiles for each Planview application environment in Platform Admin, links to modify each environment, and links to add additional environments. 
  • Connections: Shows all active and inactive Planview application connectors in both production and sandbox environments and allows you to enable any inactive connector.
  • Settings: Allows you to enable or disable global options for Platform Admin, such as functionality for email invitations and SSO.



Users on the planview Admin User list are different from the mapped users within each Application tile. Users within the Planview Admin User tab show the status within Planview Admin and not status within each application. To see status with each application, one must go within the Mapped Users tab withing each Product environment.
