Defining Work Area Types for Work Areas

A work area (formerly called a project) is a special type of folder in ProjectWise that is intended to complement your existing project management software, by providing a single place to manage and organize documents, data, and resources related to a given real-world project.

When a user creates a work area in ProjectWise Explorer, the user has the option to specify the work area type - in other words, what type of real-world project this work area is related to. For example, one work area might be related to a bridge renovation project, and another work area in the same datasource might be related to a new hospital project. These work area types are created and defined in ProjectWise Administrator.
