PROJECT ADMINISTRATION ROLE
Welcome to the Project Administration tutorial of the “MIP Workbench: Revisions” course. The role of the Project Administrator, with respect to Revisions, is to create a project in the MIP that represents a revision request submittal. The Project Admin has one activity which will required them to input information which will create a project number specific to the case. This is what will launch a revision project into the workflow where it can then be tracked by various users through the life of the project.
Project Administration Functionality: Project Administration takes the incoming revision request and creates a project in MIP to reflect that revision. Once a project is created, it will appear on the workbench of Revision Resource Managers with the appropriate geography and organization related to the particular project.

The Project Admin’s workbench is the location where the functionality to create revision projects can be accessed. Each tab on the workbench contains specific functionality:
Initiate Revision Project Module:
Once at their workbench, the Project Administrator will need to click the Create Project tab. They below the row or tabs they will need to choose and click Revision for the type of project they would like to create. This will launch the Initiate Revision Project module. The Project Administrator should then choose the appropriate Organization Name, Region, and State for the revision request. The selection of each drop down will trigger the drop down below it to populate with corresponding choices. This information will determine where the project will appear in the workflow (i.e. whose workbenches it will appear on).
Once an activity is launched, the first module of the activity will appear. A list of all modules within that activity will appear under the Work Item Details heading. Each module represents a separate screen within the activity.
