How to manage requests for a new projects

I am head of a PMO and I need to manage all IT-related projects in my company. I am considering buying Clarizen as a project portfolio management tool for my organization.

 Looking through the features offered by Clarizen I found very interesting the possibility to create a request for a new project.  Could you, please, give me more details concerning this feature? Especially:

  • Can I use it to enable all people from my organization to submit a request for a new project to the PMO? How does it work? Do I need a license for all employees in order to enable them do this? I hope not… if so, how they can submit them?

  • Can I organize the requests as a queue of possible projects awaiting my response/decision?

  • Can I prioritize the requests in the queue?

  • Can I assign the requests to the project managers? (when submitting a requests people do not know which PM will manage this project – this is my decision based on the requests numbers and priorities).

  • In the demo movie I can see the form people can use (or alternatively an e-mail). Is it possible to customize it? E.g. add some additional fields to fill or let people add attachments?

 I would really appreciate your fast answer.


Best regards,

The quick answer to all of your questions is, Yes, Clarizen can do that. Requests can also be submitted without a license.  The Q&A webinars will show you in depth how to execute each of those scenarios.
