Project requests

If you do not have the security permissions to create a project, you create a project request. A project request is similar to a work order or creative brief. It represents a request for someone else to do work according to the specifications supplied by the requester.

Users within an organization and outside vendors can request a project. For example, an outside vendor can submit a project request to the marketing services organization requesting some collateral. The marketing services representative accepts the request and creates a project, which organizes tasks and assigning resources to manage the creation of the collateral.

If you request a project, you are a requester. The requester then submits the request to a recipient for approval. When the recipient accepts the request, the recipient owns the resulting project and is called the owner.

Note: A project request does not contain a workflow. When the request is approved and transitions to a project, it contains the appropriate workflow.
