Please read the following user guide for the most basic and commonly used features in eProject. For more complex functionality questions please contact our Technical Support Team.
The first time you enter eProject you will receive an email invitation from either the project administrator or TR Trades containing a temporary password.
- 1. Login here: https://planroom.trtrades.net/pdox/. Your username will be your email address. Enter the temporary password you recieved via email.
- 2. Once logged in, you will need to change your temporary password to a permanent password and complete a security question in case you forget your password in the future.
If you have logged in previously and have just forgotten your password, choose “Forgot your Password” beside the login icon, or call TR Trades Technical Support to reset it.
- 1. Once inside the project, click the (+) signs to the left of the folder icons to navigate to the subfolders.
- 2. To view the files inside the folder, click on the folder name.
- 3. Select the checkbox next to the file(s) you wish to download, or select the checkbox at the top which selects all the files in that folder. Once you have selected the files you wish to download, click the download icon.
- 4. If you select multiple files, please be patient as eProject compresses them in a zip file for you. Once the Zip file is created, you can download it to your computer.
If you have permission to upload you will see an “Upload Files” button when you are inside a folder.
- 1. Press the “Upload Files” button to upload your files.

Placing an Order
eProject has an online “shopping cart” order system for ordering hardcopy prints from TR Trades.

- 2. Once you have finished selecting all the files required for print, select the “Cart” button in the top right hand corner of the screen to check out. Follow the instructions through to completion.
Setting up a Tender
- 1. Create your pricing folders in the designated folder area
- 2. Navigate to the “Groups” area to create a new group. Give the group a name, start date and optional end date, then save.
- 3. Navigate to the “Permissions” tab and set the groups permissions.
- 4. Navigate back to the “Groups” tab to invite users to the group. Select the “New User” tab and add the user’s first name, last name and email address. Alternatively, search for the user under “All Users“. This will add the user to the group, with the permissions you have selected.
How do I register to recieve automatic emails regarding project activity?
eProject has an automated email notification system where you can subscribe to receive emails regarding specific project activity.
- 1. Click on the red check mark at the top of the file directory. This will show a series of check marks in the top root of the project and in each folder when expanded.
- 2. To subscribe to notifications for the whole project (ex. I want to be notified every time a file is uploaded), select the appropriate criteria under the root of the project. To change the criteria for a specific folder, expand the folders and choose the folder check mark you would like to edit the notifications for.
“Trades has been our large-format printing supplier for the past two years and has consistently met our delivery deadlines. We are very happy with their service. Carla and her entire team (from delivery, to production, to customer service) are very RESPONSIVE. They treat our orders both small and large with professionalism and urgency. Rather than blindly printing what files are submitted, they take the time to review our documents and will contact us to clarify details or to offer suggestions for improving print quality. When dealing with tight timelines, we feel fortunate to be working with Carla and her team of dedicated staff to help us deliver a quality print set for our clients.”
