Create a new project

Create a new project

To create a new project click on the button 'New project' on the upper right corner of either the projects page or your dashboard. If needed, you can use a previous project as a template and copy the team members and all project properties.

When creating a new project, you can choose a name, start date, end date and description for the project. By clicking 'Browse', you can choose a personal cover image for the project.

In a private BIMCollab Cloud space you have several extra options to define the settings of the project.

Under 'Workflow', you can set a Project owner, who is the default user to whom issues will be assigned if no other user is chosen, and you can define which team members issues can be closed by.
In Connected and Enterprise plans, you can choose  mandatory fields, and only allow team members to assign issues to members of their own  user groups.

If needed, you can use a previous project as a template and copy the team members and all project properties.

Customers using the free plan of BIMcollab Cloud are limited to a single active project, so your current active project will deactivate automatically when you start a new one.
