Designing Accessible Reports

Primavera Cloud provides the ability to build accessible reports and print layouts. Reports and print layouts in Primavera Cloud are created by users. As such, it is up to the users creating the reports to ensure that they are built meeting accessibility criteria, if necessary.

The documentation topic Designing Accessible Reports details how to design accessible reports in Primavera Cloud.

Common Symbols, Icons, and Tabs: What to Expect

The following are common symbols, icons, and tabs in the application and what they signify for the user.


An asterisk (*) after a column or field name indicates that the field is required. The field must be populated with valid information or users will encounter an error.


The Settings icon will open either the Settings or the Manage Views panel. In these panels, a user can determine the view settings for the page or detail window that the settings icon corresponds with. A view is a configured visual layout of a page or detail window, including elements such as the columns appearing on a table, formatting for charts or graphs, grouping and sorting of table information, settings for page-specific information, and more.

The title of the settings icon may or may not be specific to the grid or detail window that the icon pertains to. Options for settings will vary depending on what is available for each page or detail window in the application.

Some pages support Named Views, which are configured views that can be applied to the page at any time. They are configured from the Manage Views panel.

Visit the Configure View Settings section of the documentation to learn more about the configuration options for views on pages and detail windows.

Summary & Settings

Selecting the Summary & Settings icon in the sidebar will open the Summary & Settings panel, where you can configure the settings for the main object that you are currently working in as well as the apps within that main object. If the main object you are working in is a project, portfolio, program, or idea, then you can also access the settings for its owning workspace here.

In the Summary & Settings panel, you can create, manage, and view data configurations and security privileges. You can configure dictionary items, defaults & options, and more. You can also access the News Feed and Details page of certain main objects.

Options for settings will vary depending on what is available for each main object and app in the application.

Visit the Summary & Settings section of the Help to learn more about the actions that you can take from the Summary & Settings panel, and visit Working with Summary & Settings to learn about the components of the Summary & Settings panel.

General Tabs

General tabs appear in several places throughout the application, and they provide additional information about a particular object.

Detail Windows

Detail windows contain additional details about a table row that is selected on a page. Some detail windows have General tabs that provide users with another location to access general details and information about an object. Fields that are available on the General tab on detail windows are also available as columns in the main grid on the page.

Task Details Dialog Box

On the Work Plan and Hand-offs pages of the Tasks app, you can select a task to open the Task Details dialog box to view information about the task. The Task Details dialog box has a General tab that contains general details and information about the task, such as task name, type, the assigned user, associated activity and dates, and more. All fields on the General tab are available as columns for the corresponding task on the main grid of the Task List page.

Manage Services

The General tab for a background or recurring service on the Manage Services page provides general information and details about the service selected in the list.

For background services initiated by a user on the Service Status tab, the General tab for a service includes the following fields: Job ID, Type, Started, Completed, Status, Added By, and Context. The General tab could also include additional fields for information specific to the type of background service run.

For recurring services on the Recurring Services tab, the General tab will include the following fields: Name, Enabled, Type, and Next Run. The General Tab could also include additional fields for the user who added the service, the status of the service, the last run date, the frequency of the recurring service, and more.
