A project site is a virtual project collaboration space. Projects are created from templates or existing projects. Before deciding which to use, you should consider your project's scope and requirements.
See About BrightWork and SharePoint Security for information about the permissions required to create a project site.
The BrightWork Create Project uses a proprietary site copy feature that gives far greater granularity and functionality than standard SharePoint; however, certain items are still not copied - see here for more information.
If the site copy generates any errors (e.g. items not copied) a list will be created in the new site detailing these errors.
Tip! Navigation and Permissions options can have their default values customized, or the steps removed from the process. Click here to learn more.
To create a project site:
Select Yes to include the new project site in the parent project Quick Launch and Top Link bar.
Note: The site will only be included in the Top Link bar if the Top Link bar has inheritance switched off.
Select No to not include the new project site in the parent project Quick Launch and Top Link bar.
Select Yes to have the new project site inherit its top link bar from the parent site.
Select No to have the new project site have its own set of links on the top link bar and to exclude the parent site from the Breadcrumbs navigation (this means the Breadcrumbs navigation starts at the new project site).
Note: If you opt to stop inheriting the Top Link bar, the BrightWork Help link will also disappear. See Restore BrightWork Help link for more information.
