Comments are used to provide written feedback on the progress of the project. The comments are written by the Project Manager and the audience for the comments are the Project Owners, Sponsor and the Project Office. The Comments entity can be renamed, depending on the requirement. For more details on re-naming entities, see the following knowledge base article.
The following fields appear on the Comments entity be default:
A default list of comments are automatically added to each new project that is registered on PPO. The default list is defined in the System Configuration (for more information, see the following knowledge base article).
The default list of comments is typically specified during implementation of PPO and can be customised to suit the organisation's requirements.
When a project is created in PPO, these default comments are automatically added to the project.
Note: amending the list of default comments in the System Configuration doesn't automatically amend the comments already loaded onto projects, it only affects projects that will be added AFTER the change. For details on how to make amendments to the default list of comments, please see the following FAQ.
The Type field on the comment indicates whether the comment will appear on the Project Manager Dashboard. If the comment type is set to Dashboard Comment, the comment will appear on the Project Manager Dashboard for that project.
For example, the comment type for the Milestones & Deliverables Planned for this Period comment is Dashboard Comment.
Therefore the Milestones & Deliverables Planned for this Period will appear on the Project Manager dashboard for the Business Architecture Blueprint project.
If the type is not set to Dashboard comment, the comment will not appear on the Project Manager Dashboard. This rule can be applied to other dashboards, if required.
For more information on this and other Dashboards, see the following knowledge base article.
