Organize and share with Projects

new_dashboard_projects

We’re excited to launch a much requested feature: projects! Projects allow you to organize your designs and share them with your team.
The new dashboard adds three nice features:
  • Search allows you to quickly access all your designs.
  • Collections lets you filter lesson results or just show you all your designs.
  • Projects allow you to organize related designs.
  • Shared Projects let’s you access the projects shared by other team members.

Getting Started with Projects
To create a new project just click “Create project.” Click on the gear icon on top right corner to change the project properties such as name, description, and sharing properties. To move existing designs into a project, just drag and drop them on the project on left, or use the gear menu of a design, choose “Move to Project…” and select the project where you want the design to go. There is a setting per project which controls if other team members can view or edit the designs in a project.

Enjoy!

  1. I teach a group of young students and I found the ability to view the designs created by my team very useful. I used it to see what the students had created so I could print things out for them and I also displayed it at the front of the class on the big screen so that the students could see what their peers were doing.

    With the new Collections layout, I don’t seem to be able to see what my team is doing anymore.

    Ideally, I would also like to be able to filter the search on designs created by my team. I would like to search for designs by “Joe” and only look through the designs in my team.

    I do like the idea of creating projects too and having team members work on a project together.

    • So I guess the answer to my question is that each member of the team can create a project and choose to make that project visible to the team. Then they can add their designs to the project to make them visible to other team members. Instead of being automatic, it is up to the student to add their designs to the project.

      There is one thing, however, that I can’t figure out yet. When I see all of the designs on my dashboard, I see all of the designs shared by my team members too. How do I get a view which has just my own designs? Do I have to create a project for all of my designs so that I can view them separately from my team’s designs?
