PM Central Guide Services – Get On the Fast Track to Managing Projects in SharePoint

Get to know PM Central™ with Bamboo's Guide Services and hit the ground running.

The vast flexibility of Project Management Central (PM Central) is key to its success within your organization. Instead of restricting your existing project managment process, PM Central is able to conform to and enhance it. PM Central allows you to create standardized site templates and achieve consistency in site navigation, content, permissions and metrics across your project sites.

Don’t know where to start? Let Guide Services help familiarize you with PM Central so that you can quickly orient yourself and get started.

PM Central Guide Services are delivered in three one-hour sessions designed to cover the following:

Portfolio Site Level – 1 Hour

  • The Configuration Check List
  • Site Features and their usage
  • Lists and their contents
  • Web Parts and how they are configured
  • How to change the look and feel of themes and graphics
  • Setting up additional push alerts for discussion boards, document libraries, issue and task escalation
  • How to create new project sites and use your own site templates
  • Recommendations for setting Permissions
  • Customization Best Practices and Dos & Don’ts

Project Site Level – 1 Hour

  • The Configuration Check List
  • Site Features and their usage
  • Lists and their contents
  • Web Parts and how they are configured
  • How to save a customized project site for use at the Portfolio Site Level
  • Customization Best Practices and Dos & Don’ts

 

Once you have finished the two one-hour sessions with your PM Central personal guide, you will spend time on your own exploring PM Central. A subsequent one-hour session will give us time to field any questions you may have as a result of your independent exploration. Additional time, beyond the three hours provided through Guide Services, will be available as necessary at additional cost.

A personal guide to assist with the speedy configuration of PM Central can decrease evaluation time and expedite the time it takes to get PM Central running in your production environment. If you’re interested in purchasing Guide Solutions for $1,200, contact your Sales representative or call 703-964-2002.
