This menu item requires that the Item Manager is installed.
The Item panel shows a searchable list of the all instances for a given Business Object. Here we record a number of different aspect of a migration.
The different Item types (Activities, Tasks, Milestones, Activities, Risks etc...) and their properties that are available need to be can be configured for your particular project and use. This is done my an administrator and therefore might differ from what we are displaying here as an example (for more please refer to Item Manager Setup).
Once a migration is in process Items are created to support a project, they can be configured and changed at any time. An Item can be created and assigned to a Team member.
When an Item is created we can add a number of things, i.e. the impact of this specific Item, the date range for the Item, the expected complete time etc. Remember Items can be any project property (Activities, Tasks, Milestones, Activities, Risks etc...).
These Items are used to manage or track specific tasks of a migration along with the ability to assign and see updates for specific tasks.
