Understanding Project Owners

You can designate the manager of a project by specifying a Project Owner on a project or a template. 

You can only define one Project Owner for a project. 

The following are possible using the Project Owner field: 

  • Project Owners can be designated as the hours approver for the project.
  • Project Owners can be designated as a generic option when defining project, task, or issue approvals processes.
  • You can enable certain notifications that are delivered only to the Project Owner.
    For more information about email notifications, see "Configuring Email Notifications."
  • The Project owner field is reportable.
    For example, a filter looking for projects owned by the logged in user is defined by the following text mode: ownerID=$$USER.ID 
    You can also display the Project Owner field in a view, and a grouping.
    For more information about creating reports, see "Creating a Report."
