Creating a new project

Updated 7 months ago by Abhiram

You can create a new project only if you are given permission by an Account Admin.

Creating a new project

  1. Click Create a new flow from the homepage.
  2. Click create a blank project to create from scratch. There are also several project templates you can choose from to get started.
  3. Enter the project name. For example, if you’re creating a software development project, you can name this as Product software development project.
  4. Specify a text or number between 1-4 letters so it can be used as a prefix for your item IDs. The prefix is used with serial numbers to generate unique IDs. For example, if you enter PSDP, cases will be numbered PSDP-001, PSDP-002, and so on. 
Note: The prefix that you specify here cannot be changed later in the project.
  1. Click Create.

Renaming a project

To rename your project, simply click on the current name, make changes, and then click Enter, or click off the name. All changes are auto-saved.

Configuring steps

Your project consists of a set of steps that show as columns in Kanban. By default, new projects will have four steps: Not started, Planning, Implementing, and Completed. You cannot delete or modify the Not started and Completed steps.

To create a new step or rearrange your existing ones, click the More options button () on the upper-right corner of the project page > click Configure steps. You can also click the Configure steps button on the upper-left corner of the project page. 

In the configure steps popup box, click Add a new step between any two steps. You can add as many steps as you need this way. Change the name of steps by hovering over the name and clicking the Edit button (). To rearrange the step order, simply drag and drop your steps between the Not started and the Completed steps. Delete an empty step by clicking the Delete button (). After you finish configuring your steps, click Done.

Note: Before you try to delete any step that has items, you need to move all those items to another step in your project.

Entering and exiting fullscreen

Click the Fullscreen button () on the upper-right corner of the project home page to enter or exit fullscreen mode for your project.

Finding a project

There are two ways you can search for your project at any time.

First, click the Search button () on the top navigation bar of your page and type the name of the project into the search box. You can also launch the search box using the keyboard shortcuts, 

  • On Mac: Command key, ⌘ + E
  • On Windows: Ctrl key + E

Second, click Explorer in your top navigation bar to land on the All flows page. Then you can use the search and sort features to find it quickly.
