Create Projects

To start a new Project, all you need is a Project Name and unique Project Key. You can also enable Gantt and Burndown charts for your project, enable subtasking, and select formatting rules that differ from your default Space Settings.

  1. Go to your Space Settings.

    When you click on your profile image in the upper right-hand corner of your Dashboard, a dropdown menu will appear. Click on the “Space Settings” option.

Once you've created your first Project, you can begin adding users to your Space, so they can participate, too.
