A project description will appear in the left sidebar of a project's Overview area.

You can use the other tabs to set up the rest of the options for the project:

  • Company: You can associate a project with your owner company, or with an external company, which will allow you to group and filter projects in other areas. You can also create a new external company here.
  • People: Choose people or teams to add to the project as you create it. You will also be able to adjust the project members via the project settings once created.
    • Note: A client user can only be a member of up to 5 active projects associated with their external company.
    • Project owner - once you select users in the People tab, you will be able to choose one of them to be the owner of the project. A client user can be the owner of a project where they are a member.
  • Custom Fields: On per-user Premium subscription plans and above, you will also be able to set project custom fields when creating your project.
  • Advanced: Choose a category, set tags, or create a project Chat channel.
    • If you do not have an existing Teamwork Chat account, you can enable it through your integration settings in Teamwork to start a trial. After your trial you will need to subscribe to a paid Teamwork Chat plan in order to use this feature.

Once you have added the relevant details, click Add Project to create and view your new project. You can then start adding task lists and tasks and using the other project features that you have enabled.

You can also create a project from an existing project template using the Choose Template option.
