How do I use the Portfolio Center?

The Projects Portfolios list is a central list of Portfolio names used for grouping and organizing projects within your site app. A Portfolio Item can have multiple projects associated to it. This is an optional feature and is not required. A Portfolio contains a set of projects that may not all be related, but that are all associated to a strategic initiative or goal of the company. The benefit of using this app is that it’s a way to “tag” projects with this metadata classification to be able to view the project-related data and health at a higher level, such as by Portfolio. This article covers navigating, adding, and editing a Project Portfolio Item in the Portfolios List.
