The Primavera P6 Progress Reporter module is a web-driven timesheets and progress-reporting system. It is integrated to work seamlessly with Primavera P6 Enterprise PPM(Project Portfolio Management) schedules. Team members can access a simple cross-project to-do list of their work assignments generated by Primavera P6 EPPM. With it, team members can record time worked and enter information about their project assignments. That information is then sent to the appropriate person for approval. This way, team members are able to communicate timesheet and activity status directly to their managers from any location. They can also update their managers on projected and remaining work.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Oracle/Primavera licensing model?
The Oracle/Primavera licensing model type is what is commonly referred to as a “Named User License” model. A Named User license model is a license that allows an exact number of users. This means that a preselected amount of users are permitted to use the license. A valid license is required for each user.

What about concurrent licensing; can I have multiple users share a license?
No. Each user (regardless of administratively established security settings) must have unique log-in credentials (username/password). Oracle does not support a concurrent license model (once available from Primavera).

Are multiple users allowed to be in the same project at the same time?
Yes. There are no restrictions (other than administratively established security settings), against multiple users accessing a project simultaneously. Each valid, licensed user may open and interact with any project that they’ve been given access to.

What about ‘read-only,’ users, do they need a license?
Yes. An administrator can establish how and what a user can access, including read-only privileges. However, the user still needs a license.

Can I restrict simultaneous user access to projects?
Yes. There are multiple options available to manage who can have access to your project(s) and database.

What happens when a user leaves the company?
An administrator from your organization can re-assign a license without involving Oracle.

Can I transfer the license to a different organization?
Generally, no. Only certain circumstances allow you to transfer license registrations to organizations that are different from the originally registered organization. This type of transaction requires the involvement of Oracle.

Are there functional benefits to the named user license model?
You can establish security groups when you purchase your licenses. New users can be added to a security group based on which access and software attributes they are allowed to use/view. The system has an “audit trail” capability that tracks who has accessed a database and their activity on it. Another key function is the ability to establish Layouts. Layouts can be created to suit the needs of each unique user and makes your work easier and more efficient.
