Best practices

  • Keep it relevant: Links are a valuable resource — they're meant to be related to the project as a whole so focus on adding links that your team will find valuable while working on this project. If you have links that are particularly relevant to a task or task list, include them in the task or task list description for easier access.
  • Embed resources: Use links to embed resources such as YouTube videos to your project. These kinds of links will open in a pop-up window directly in the project.
