Control Center terms


Control Center is organized into programs. A program represents a collection of projects that are managed together. For example, the IT department may have one program while Facilities may have another program. The two departments have different goals, different leadership, different standardized processes, and different users (although there can be some overlap)—therefore, each needs its own program.

Users get access to one or more programs and can easily switch between them. 

As a licensed user on an Advance plan, you get access to unlimited programs and blueprints in Control Center.

Each program has these distinct properties:

  • One group of leads that can administer everything in the program
  • A custom title, description, logo, and colors
  • A set of blueprints specific to that program for creating projects
  • Users that have access to the program and who can create projects using any of the blueprints


When you’re in one program in Control Center, you don’t have visibility or access to other programs. To see the properties of a different program, you need to switch to it first.
