Step 2: Add the Project details

While there are many details you can add to your new Project, the only requirement is to give it a name. Pro Tip: Give the Project a name that is short but descriptive.

Step 3: Adjust Project settings

There are a few settings that you can adjust, depending on your needs and the scope of the Project. 

Turn Discussion Off

If you don’t need a discussion on this Project, toggle them off and keep your Project from getting too noisy with conversation. 

Toggle switch to turn Discussion on or off.


If you won’t be adding Notes to this Project, toggle it off to declutter your screen.

Toggle switch to turn Notes on or off.


You can keep or remove To-dos as an option on a Project.

Toggle switch to turn To-dos on or off.


Make it easy to find and access websites or cloud-based files related to your Project. You can toggle this on or off from your Project.

Toggle switch to turn Links on or off.

Once you add a link, you can edit the display name and add a description if you need more context.

Step 4: Save your Project

Once you’ve added all the information you want to the Project, and adjusted the settings, you have two options. You can “Save” it, at which point you’ll close the form and go to your Project list. Or, you can “Save & Copy,” which will save the Project and create a copy of it. This way, if you’re working on similar Projects, you can add multiple quickly.
