To create a project in GitScrum you need to follow some very simple steps.
Notice that it is necessary to log in to the platform to access the panel you will see on the image below, so only follow this guide after you have logged in.
In any page on GitScrum, click on the option “Projects” on the upper menu, shown in the image above as Step 01, and you will be immediately taken to your projects page, where you can visualize all the projects to which you and your team are signed up.
Going to the project registry, click on the “CREATE PROJECT” button, shown on image as Step 02, and you will be directly taken to your screen to provide the first set of information about your new project.
In this new screen that appears, you can fill out five fields about your project to generate a richer registry in your documentation in the Project Management.
In this first field, you just need to say what is the name of your project, that is, the ludic way in which you and your team will identify this project.
The code field helps the team identify the project. In some teams, it is common to use external documents, and in some cases, a project might be linked to other records, such as contracts, etc. If in your organization there is a unique identifier defined for the project, you can use this field to keep this link.
In this field, you will be able to relate a new project to another existing one. This field can be very useful for teams that work with large projects and choose to share the work into projects with a smaller scope, or in other cases, when there are many teams simultaneously working in the project, and like that, the manager can decide to make this subdivision. If you do not wish to create this relationship, choose the option “It’s a Master Project” and move on to the next field.
A project’s visibility defines if a GitScrum user can or not access your project. If the setting was defined as a public project, any GitScrum user can see that project. Therefore, if you wish to have more privacy and secrecy, choose to create a private project, and like that, only those that you allow will be able to access your project.
Once you are almost done registering your project, you can use this field to define the goals of your project. Remember that the definition of goals is extremely important for further assessment of the results that will be obtained throughout time, and besides, sharing goals among the team is a great motivator for everyone when performing their jobs.
By filling at least the mandatory fields that correspond to numbers 1 and 4, you can finish the registration of your project by clicking the button “CREATE PROJECT” and you will be ready to start working with your new project.
