Add a project to a program

You can organize your projects by adding them to programs within portfolios. You can have multiple projects inside of one program, but you can associate only one program with a project.

You must create a portfolio and a program inside this portfolio before you can add a project to a program.

For information about creating portfolios, see Create a portfolio.

For information about creating programs, see Create a program.
