  • Hello, did you defined stages in PWA>server settings? A project workflow should start by an existing stage that you pick from stages list in SP designer...

  • Hi Balamurugan, sorry for late reply, but I have few experience so far on that.

    all what I can say is that it is crucial to define:

    - defines your company goals, for example: "this year we need to increase market shares on a segment of product"

    - then your business rules, with measurable criteria (e.g.: how much this project contributes to increase my market shares on this segment)

    - then for each possible reply: 0 to 10%, 10 to 25%, and so on...

    these rules will rank priorities for your projects portfolio. If in addition you define resources roles, it will show benefit of hiring this or this type of job. With UMT finance module, it can also show what if benefit expected for a given forecasted expenditure...

    but once again, as technical guy I did not spent so much time on this...

    good luck!
