How to Search for a Project

Similar to other sections in TrustLayer, there are a few options to help you search for a project. Select the method that works best for you. 

1 Use the search bar to type in the name of the Project.


2 Use the Filter options to narrow down the project you are looking for.

Note: If you have created any Custom fields, you will see them as an option to use as you are selecting filters as seen in the screenshot below. Custom fields are highlighted with the red stars as an example.


3 Change the Sort By: option to help bring certain projects to the top of your list. You can do this by selecting the drop down shown in the first screenshot, or clicking the arrows next to each category as shown in the second screenshot.





How to Add a Project to a Party

1 Click the blue Add to Project button.


2 In the new pop up, either use the drop down to choose the project that should be assigned the the party or click the blue create new to add a new project.


3 If choosing from the dropdown, select the desired project and then click the blue Add to project button. If creating a new project move to step 4.


4 In the new pop up, add the new Project Name and other desired information.


5 Click the Custom Fields tab. If a custom field is not needed, jump to step 8.

Note: The use of custom fields within projects is optional and may or may not make sense to implement within your organization's TrustLayer instance.  If your organization has custom requirements that differ from project to project or location to location, such as the certificate holder, location of project, additional insured entities, or any other project or location-specific requirement, this is where you can set those parameters for each project in order to pull the project-specific information into the Compliance Profile.

6 Click the Select a Custom Field... dropdown menu.


7 Select the appropriate custom field then enter the value of the custom field to the right of the dropdown.



8 Click the Parties tab.


9 Click into the “Search Parties…” box and type the name of the party you are looking for. If no other parties need to be added to the project move to step 11.

Note: If there is a new party that is not in the system you will need to add them as a party in the system and then add the new party to the project.

10 Select the relevant party or parties.
