Creating a Space for your project

Name your space.


Select a template (optional) if it's a repetitive project that require the same set of tasks. To learn how to create and use templates click here.


Invite others users to your space if desired - type in the names of the users that you would like to invite, and click on the populated result.


Define the Privacy. Select who can join the space. The default selection is "Anyone on the team" which makes it a public space. To change the space to private, click the button next to "Only those invited can join the space."


Choose what apps you'd like to connect to the space by clicking the arrow next to "Customize this space with Extensions" and then selecting "Add" next to the integrations you'd like to add.
