This procedure allows you to create a project header, project attributes, a project structure, and project structure attributes via utilization of an enterprise project template. It populates the project with an ID (format established by the EcoSys administrator), and a project name supplied by the user. Default project attributes established by the EcoSys administrator are copied to the new project, as well as the project structure and attributes defined in the selected template. Lastly, a project log is created, and an email is sent to the person creating the project to confirm that the project was successfully created.

The enterprise project template must be created before a project is created as described below. EcoSys projects is shipped with one template to support this method (Project Template with WBS).
