Add Child Release to Enterprise Release

There are three scenarios:
Maintain ALL Phases/Gates
Select this option to maintain all the Phases/Gates, Activities/Criteria, and Environment Bookings from the Child Release.
The following options are available in the ‘Inheritance of Enterprise Phase/Gate’ section:
- Inherit ALL Phases/Gates: Select this option to inherit all the Phase/Gate and Activities/Criteria. If the same Phase, that exists in the Child Release, is inherited from the new Parent release, and it has Bookings in the Child Release, then the ‘Environment Booking Smart Alerts’ wizard will appear asking if you want to adjust Bookings dates.
- Do not inherit Phases/Gates: Select this option if you do not want to inherit any Phases/Gates and Activity/Criteria from the Parent Release. This option will keep all the Child Phases/Gates, Activities/Criteria, and associated Bookings and not inherit anything from the Parent Release.
- Remove ALL previously inherited Phases/Gates checkbox: If the Project Release is currently associated with a different Enterprise release, selecting this option will delete all the Phases/Gates, Activities/Criteria, and the associated Bookings that were inherited from the previous Parent Release.
Maintain ONLY Phases/Gates that have Start Date less than or equal to today
This option will retain Phases/Gates with the Start Date less than or equal to today (and their associated Bookings, and Activities/Criteria), and will remove everything else. It will also delete the Bookings associated with Phases that are to be deleted.
The option Inherit FUTURE Phases/Gates in the ‘Inheritance of Enterprise Phase/Gate’ section will be selected by default. It will inherit all the Phases/Gates in the future with their Activities/Criteria from the new Parent Release.
Remove ALL Phases/Gates
This option will delete all Phases/Gates, Activities/Criteria, and Bookings from the Child Release. It will also delete the Bookings associated with Phases that are to be deleted.
The option Inherit ALL Phases/Gates in the ‘Inheritance of Enterprise Phase/Gate’ section will be selected by default. It will inherit the Phase/Gates and Activities/Criteria from the new Parent Release.
