    Warnings in PPM Express

    In this article, we will review the general concept of Warnings in PPM Express. 

    PPM Express warnings were created to indicate data inconsistency for Portfolios and Projects.

    Portfolios Warnings

    Warnings for Portfolios will appear if there is data inconsistency as for:

    • Portfolios Statuses (for example, if Portfolio Schedule Status is set to 'At risk' and Portfolio Overall status is set to 'On track', the following warning will appear: Portfolio Schedule Status is At Risk. Please consider changing Overall Status). 
    • Portfolio Progress (for example, if there are Projects within a Portfolio with 0% Complete and Portfolio stage is set to 'Closed', the following warning will appear: There are Projects that are not completed within current Portfolio. Please consider changing the Portfolio stage. 
    • Portfolio Key dates (for example, if there are Projects with late key dates within a Portfolio and Portfolio Overall status is set to 'On Track', the following warning will appear: At least one Project has late Key Dates. Please consider changing the Portfolio Overall Status).

    Project Warnings 

    Warnings for Projects will appear if there is data inconsistency as for:

    • Projects Statuses (for example, if Project Cost status is set to 'At Risk' and Overall status is set to 'On Track', the following warning will appear: Project Cost Status is At Risk. Please consider changing Overall Status).
    • Projects Progress (for example, if Project has more than 0% Complete and Project Progress is set to 'Not started', the following warning will appear: The Project has more than 0% Completed. Please consider changing Project Progress. 
    • Project Key dates (for example, if at least one Key date is more than 3 days late and Overall Project Status is set to 'On track'/'At risk', the following warning will appear: At least one Project Key Date is more than 3 days late. Please Consider changing Overall Project Status to Critical). 

    It is in our road-map to add more warnings for other PPM Express entities.

    Teams/Projects linking is not included into the Core License plan.

    Disabling Warnings 

    It is possible to turn the Warnings off on the tenant level or per project/portfolio. 

    Let's review how to turn the warnings per project as an example. For portfolios, the steps will be exactly the same. 

    To turn the warnings off per project perform the following: 

    1. Open the required project. 

    2. Click on the ... icon in the right upper corner of the page to open the Configure menu. 

    3. Select Calculated automatically option. 

    4. Select Warnings and click on this option to turn it off/on.

    To disable warnings per project/portfolio, a user should have permissions for editing this project/portfolio. 

    To disable warnings on the tenant level, open PPM Insights settings, and turn the warnings off there. 

    PPM Insights settings are available for PPM Express administrators only. 

    Please note: Warnings are always disabled for projects where project progress is set to 'On-hold'/'Canceled' and for Portfolios with 'Inactive' portfolio stage.
