Projects

In Tracker, projects are sets of issues that have a shared goal. Projects come in various forms, from creating a new app or service to holding a conference or renovating the office. Any activity with deadlines and set goals in mind can be thought of as a project.

Projects can include issues from different queues. You can use projects to group together issues managed by different teams as long as they share a goal.

To start working on a project in Tracker, create a new project and add issues. You can appoint a project owner and set deadlines and project statuses. There is a dedicated page for tracking progress on all projects.

Creating a project

  1. Open the page of an issue you want to include in your project. If you want to include issues from different queues in a project, you will be able to do that later.

  2. Go to the Projects tab and click Create project.

    Note. If you don't see the Projects tab, ask the queue owner to enable the Display Projects tab option.
  3. Set your project's settings:

    • Name in Russian. Try keeping it short and simple so it's easier to work with.

    • Project owner — Start typing the name or login of the person you want to appoint and choose the appropriate option from the list of suggestions.

    • Project status — The current stage of the project.

    • Start date and Completion date.

    • Queues — List the keys for queues that include issues that you plan to add to the project. This list can always be changed later.

  4. Click Save.
