Chapter 3. Projects and Project Sites > Managing Project Sites

Managing Project Sites

A project site is a small Web site that gives the client a view into the project. Each project site is tied to a project in Sitespring and is separate from the Project page that your team uses to keep track of a project's status. The project site facilitates communication between the team and the client users who have permission to log into the site. Depending on the modules you choose to make visible, clients can see the status of their project, sign off on work in progress, use the messaging tool to communicate with the team, upload files if they have permission to do so, and view the project contact list. As you update the status of tasks and projects in Sitespring, the project site is updated automatically.

Because project sites reflect the status of and information about a particular project, the project must exist before you can create a project site for it. You can choose the look and feel of the project site when you create it by using one of Sitespring's eight project-site templates, or you can create your own template if you feel comfortable editing a page that uses JavaServer Pages (JSP) tags to place dynamic information. (Note, however, that once you've created a project site you cannot choose a new design template for the project site. If you want to change a project site's graphical look and feel, you need to either edit the actual JSP templates for the project site or delete the project site and re-create it with a new template.)
