    • Dashboards
    • Project Workspace
    • Issues tab from either the Project Menu or the Portfolio Menu
  • Issues represent areas for input of text information similar to the functionality of Notebook topics.
  • Much of the functionality related to structuring of Issues is contained solely within P6 Web (not administered in P6 Client).



Issues or Notebooks??

  • Benefits of utilizing the Issue Module

case study energy utility
Case Study – Energy Utility
  • Energy Utility expressed a desire for Project Managers to log project information into a centralize system for management visibility.
  • Four main topics were defined for which information would be entered as required by the project
    • Issues / Risks / Decisions / Lessons Learned
  • P6 Notebook topics provided one option for tracking this type of information, but proved inadequate for allowing additional structure to the information for management reporting.
  • P6 Risks were evaluated, however, similar to Notebook topics, did not allow for the required structure for management reporting.
  • P6 Issues were developed to account for all management reporting requirements including detailed text information, priority, proposed resolution dates, responsible party, etc. The Issue module also proved to be scalable to any additional requirements as they became known.

1) Issue Categories were used to classify the four primary types of information to be entered into the P6 Database

2) Issue Forms were created for each of the Issue types and assigned to projects by the P6 Administrator


Issue Codes were developed to satisfy executive reporting requirements

User Defined Fields were created in P6 Client for inclusion in the Issue Forms


Once Issues are entered into the system, Executive reporting can be performed using a wide variety of Grouping and Filtering to accommodate management reporting.
