The Project Site is a sub site of the portfolio site and is designed to have its data rolled up to the portfolio site for a comprehensive status of all projects in your portfolio. Its enhanced template supports uniform project data input, visualization of task, issue and risk status, along with a file explorer-type interface for document management, and a built in discussion board.
