Generate Outline Code

Sciforma contains an additional field that can add meaning to the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) by allowing users to code each task based on its position in the WBS. This field is called the WBS field and is used to categorize tasks according to the phases of work.

For the WBS, alphanumeric values can be used. Alphanumeric values can also be combined at each level. For example, tasks can be coded based on which project deliverable it supports.

WBS Codes are optional but they do give users an added tool for filtering and sorting tasks. They can provide an organization with a consistent method for coding tasks across many projects.

When selecting the Generate Outline Code command, the Generate Outline Code for Project dialog box will be displayed, enabling users to create their own codes using a prefix, a suffix, text, and separators.
