Using project management properties

Project management properties are a set pre-defined properties, made for recording additional management-level information for all kinds of project data (e.g. diagrams, model elements, diagram elements). Here are all the project management properties you can find:

Property name

Process
Specify the part of the process where the editing element is involved. Three sub-properties for further specification. They include: Iteraction, Phase and Discipline.

Priority

Create date time The date and time when the editing element was created. This property is a read-only property that is filled automatically to all elements when creation.
