  • Schedule
    Displays one of the following colored indicators. For the indicator to display a color, first baseline the project.
    • White indicator if there is no baseline data.
    • Green indicator if the baseline finish date is on schedule (no days late).
    • Yellow indicator if the baseline finish date is less than or equal to 10 days late.
    • Red indicator if the baseline finish date is greater than 10 days late.
  • Days Late
    The actual days subtracted from the baseline days. If no baseline exists, this field is empty.
  • Risk
    Displays one of the following risk indicators:
    • White indicator if there is no data.
    • Green indicator if all risks are low priority.
    • Yellow indicator if at least one risk is medium priority and there are no high priority issues.
    • Red indicator if at least one risk is high priority.
  • Issue
    Displays one of the following risk indicators:
    • White indicator if there is no data.
    • Green indicator if all issues are low priority.

    • Green check mark indicates Excellent.
    • Yellow check mark indicates Fair.
    • Red X indicates Poor.
Project Report Status
Use the Project Report Status portlet to receive a quick status update on the latest reports submitted. The portlet allows you to see the reports that are pending review for a long time.
The following fields require explanation:
  • Latest Reports
    Displays the latest submitted report names. Click a report name to drill down to the latest report (properties page) submitted.
  • Approval Status
    Displays the approval status of the latest submitted report type. The stoplight icon corresponds to the appropriate approval status (Submitted for Review, Reviewed, Approved, and Rejected).
  • # of Days
    Displays colored indicator and the number of days the report had the latest status.
    • Green indicator: 1 - 5 Days
    • Yellow indicator: 6 - 10 Days
    • Red indicator: Greater than 10 Days
  • Reviewer(s)
    Assuming the report is still under review, the column displays the names of the pending reviewers. When review is completed, the reviewer name disappears from this column. Click an Email icon to send an email from your default email client to the current pending reviewers.
Project by Stages
Use the Project by Stages portlet to see how many days the project is at each PRINCE2 stage in the PRINCE2 process model.
The portlet displays a bar chart with the X-axis representing specific PRINCE2 stages and the Y-axis representing the percentage (total duration of entire project). Each bar represents the number of days the project remained in a stage. The stages and number of days are displayed based on the latest stage. If you change the stage value to a different stage, the bar chart is reset and displays the currently selected stage. The number of days that are displayed for a stage is cumulative. It includes the days from the prior stage up to the current stage. If you skip a stage, the skipped stage is not displayed in the bar chart.
PMO Dashboard
If you have installed the PMO Accelerator, you can use the Click here to view PMO Dashboard link that appears in the PMO Dashboard portlet to view the project dashboard page. This page displays the portlets for the PMO project storyboard page layout. The Page Layout field appears on the project properties page. When you click the link, the Project Dashboard opens in a separate browser window.
Access rights to the portlets on the Dashboard are required for the dashboard to display data.
