Introduction To Deployment Plan Library

Over the next few weeks, we will be updating our user interface to make it more consistent. The icons, buttons, fonts, formatting, and colors that appear in the screenshots below will be temporarily out of date.
Deployment Plans now save in a more granular way, so that multiple users updating the same Deployment Plan will not save over each other’s updates.

Deployment Plan Library allows users to view, search and filter their Deployment Plans.

Master Deployment Plans (with Checkpoints and Issues) have been added to the Deployment Plan Library, the Activity Summary & Progress column has been added, and the Action column has been removed.

On the Deployment Plan Library page you can perform the following actions:

Open a Deployment Plan by clicking the blue-linked Name.

There are three levels of Deployment Plan in the Deployment Plan Library:
