Within Teamwork Projects, any site administrator can access the Settings area of your site to update general site settings such as site name, site address, and the message you would like displayed on your Dashboard.

To access General Settings, click on your avatar in the top right corner of your site, and select Settings from the dropdown:


From the Settings area, go to the General tab:


The option available within the general area can be found below:

Site Name: The site name is the name that will display on the dashboard and on the page title on the login page.

Site Address: The URL for your site. Here you can choose to update your site address, domain, and add a custom domain.

  • Teamwork Projects site address: Choose your site address; the name that will be shown here is the name you selected when you initially set up the site. To change this, enter the text in the field and save your changes.  If this is not available, you will receive a message prompting you to contact our support team; we will see if we can make this available.
  • Custom Domain: You can set a custom domain for your site: Simply create a CName record and point it to your teamwork.com site (eg. yourcompany.teamwork.com). (You usually do this with the company you registered your domain name with eg.GoDaddy.com)

Verify the CName record is working. Once you have created the CName record and you have verified it is now pointing to your site (eg. Browse to your custom domain in a browser and you should see a Teamwork message).

Update your site settings. Keep in mind that CNAME changes with your domain provider can take up to 24 hours to propagate fully.

Log in to your Teamwork Projects account, click your profile icon to the top right and choose settings, select general, click edit under the site address, and then click on the custom domain button.

  • Note:
    • SSL is not available on custom domain names.
    • Do not use a DNS A record for your custom domain. The DNS record you need to create is a CName record.
    • Custom Domain Names are only available on the following plans.
      • Business 2 / Small Office
      • Corporate
      • Enterprise / Professional
