|Getting started with PM Central||Overview of the Portfolio Site|
The PM Central Control Panel for portfolio sites provides a central location for users to manage the administrative functions of PM Central.
Users with Full Control or Design permissions can access the PM Central Control Panel from the Central Actions drop down menu.
When working with the PM Central Control Panel keep in mind:
The contents of the control panel are security trimmed so not all options will be visible to users with Design permissions. The table below identifies the permission level required to see specific links.
Portfolio sites created using the PM Central Lite template will not include links relating to the Reporting and Resource Management features. Additional information on the differences between the Full and Lite templates is available here
NOTE: The PM Central Control Panel was introduced with PM Central 4.0
