Add projects to a portfolio

We recommend that you add projects to portfolios when you initiate them. However, you can add them to a portfolio at any time during their lifetime.

Consider the following when adding projects to portfolios:

  • Although a portfolio may contain an unlimited number of projects, you can associate only one portfolio with a project.
  • A project remains in a portfolio until it is removed or associated with another portfolio.
