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 are given access to one or more programs and can easily switch between them. 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: these users can create projects using any of the blueprints

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