How to create a project or event

Workast is the ideal place to plan, deploy, and complete a project or an event. You can create a Space for the project, create lists, add team members, and assign tasks all within the Workast web app. Click here to sign up. 

Creating a Space for your project

To create a space in the Workast web app:


Click on + next to "Spaces" in your left-hand taskbar. A space creation dialogue will open. 


Name: Name your space.


Type: Pick which type of Space you are creating.


Privacy: Select who can join the space. The default selection is "Anyone in the workspace" which makes it a public space.  To change the space to private, click the button next to "Only people invited".


Click the blue "Create" button.


A new dialogue will open. You can choose to "Start from scratch", pick a custom template (or create one if you haven't), or select one of our Library. Templates are useful if it's a repetitive project that requires the same set of tasks. To learn how to create and use templates click here.
