In the Practice section, we will show you how to operate a Wiki using Backlog, our online project management and collaboration tool. While we'll be showing you instructions specific to our tool, the basic Wiki features available in Backlog are similar to other services, so you can still follow along.

First things first: you'll need to sign up for Backlog. If you're already a Backlog member: great! If not, we offer a 30-day free trial, risk free.

Use an existing Backlog space

If you have an existing Backlog subscription, you can use your existing Backlog space—no need to create a new one!

To try out the Wiki feature, simply create a new project. You may need to ask someone with administrative privileges to create this for you if you yourself are not an admin.

After creating your Project, skip ahead to Selecting a text format.

Sign up for a new Backlog Space

From our pricing page, you can start your 30-day free trial of Backlog. The Wiki feature is available on any plan.

After acquiring your Backlog Space, you will be asked to input a Project name. Feel free to name this whatever you'd like—something like “Test” is fine. You can always change the project name later on. In Backlog, each Project has its own Wiki.

Your Backlog Space is where all of your organization's project information, files, and members are located. There is usually one subscription (and one Space) per organization.

Next, you'll be taken to the User Invite page. If you're just trying out the features of the Wiki by yourself, you can hit “Skip”. If not, feel free to invite any team members you want to join you on Backlog.

Now your Backlog Space is up and ready. Go to your new project and click “Wiki” on the left-hand sidebar to go to the Wiki's home page.
