In the Details step, you will need to set a name and associated company for the project. You can also optionally add a project description which will appear in the left sidebar of a project's Dashboard area.

  • The company dropdown allows you to select one of the existing companies on your site or create a new one.



Once you start typing in the project name field, an additional option to Create Project will appear at the bottom of the modal. Click this to create the project immediately or choose Next step to fill out the remaining setup steps.

In the Add People step, you can select people and teams to be added as members of the project. At the bottom of the list of people, you can also choose one of the selected users to be the project owner.

Note: A client user can only be a member of up to 5 active projects associated with their external company. They can be the owner of a project where they are a member.
