Projects and Programs | Targetprocess - Visual management software

Projects and Programs

Programs provide a custom way to group projects, working as some sort of tag. What’s more, they can be regarded as yet another level in User Story – Feature - Epic - Project - Program hierarchy.

A Project can belong to exactly one Program.

You can create Boards, Lists and Timelines with Programs as cards. It helps manage portfolios of projects and programs.

Programs and Projects List view

To combine projects into a new Program, first either add a new Program. Program creation is simplified. Use + Add button or open top Project/Team selection and find the Program link.

Add Program link
With a View having Program as a lane and Project as a card (as on the screen below), new Programs can be added, edited (click on a Program ID# in the column header for that), and Projects can be moved from one Program to another.

Add Program to Board view

Another point to note: you can setup a view to see work item cards (User Stories, Bugs, etc.) distributed by Programs, but you cannot move work items between Programs.

We added a possibility to select a Program while creating a Project:

Select Program for new Project
