Main Window

The main window in LiveProject is launched by default. Unless you Detach Viewers, all the viewers and activity happens here in the tabs.

Note: If you are using the FREE project viewer version of LiveProject, then all functionality related to the LiveProject Server, and changes to projects will not work. You must have a valid license to collaborate.

Tabs

There are seven main tabs shown in the main window.

Project Portfolio

This tab contains the Project Portfolio Dashboard.

Project Viewers

This tab contains all the open Project viewers. You can view as many mpp viewers as you need to, and quickly switch between them using the sub-tabs inside the main one. You may view both local and server files.

Bugzilla Viewers

This tab contains all the open Bugzilla viewers. You can create multiple view either on the same database, or you can view many databases. Each viewer is contained in its own tab. If you don't know what Bugzilla is, don't despair. It's a great Open Source tool for tracking bugs, and you probably don't need to use this at all.

Explorer Server

This tab contains the LiveProject explorer, which shows all the files stored on the LiveProject server. You can drag and drop files from Windows directly in here, for quick upload. If you think there are some new files missing, try pressing the status bar in the top right corner to refresh.

Manage Project Suggestions

When you have received suggestions to projects, you can go to this tab to manage them. You have to be a manager of a project to accept or reject suggestions of course.

Manager Users

This tab is used by managers to manage users. You can add and delete users, reset passwords, etc.

This tab will be hidden if you do not have manager rights.
