Using the Project Panel

The 'Project' panel provides facilities for obtaining an overview of the project status, and tools for collaborating with other modelers and team members. Enterprise Architect is a powerful collaboration platform and allows any number of people to work on models and diagrams at the same time. The collaboration tools facilitate conversations, discussions, reviews and more, and make working on a model a cooperative and team effort. The tools ensure that communication about the elements, diagrams, lists and matrices are available in the model and links can be created back to these items from the collaboration tools.
