There are a few different ways to create a program. The easiest way is to use the widget on your Personal Dashboard (Home) tab. Ensure that your user profile is configured with permission to create programs to be able to see this widget.
You can also use the New button under the Initiatives tab in the Enterprise dashboard.
If you are a regular user having the program administrator role, you will be able to create a program using the New > program button under the My Initiatives tab.
To create a program:
- Use the Create new Program window to name your program and get started with the program configuration.
The program's default dashboard will display next.
Once you have saved the program, you become the Program Administrator for that program. This is an in-built role that gets assigned to the user who created the program. The Program Administrator has the rights to control the program. They are also able to add and remove users from the program's team. If you want to assign these responsibilities to another user, you can add them to the program team with the same role. Learn more about the Program Administrator role here.
When you create a program, Amplify will automatically create templates/types for items that the program can contain. By default, a new program provides templates/types for the following items: project, impact, risk, assumption, issue, and dependency (RAID) and cost category. The team members are free to utilise these templates to add new items to their programs/ projects.
Your next steps as the program administrator would be to either modify the default templates or create new ones using the Configuration function.
