The Projects tool helps organize information for your group's various activities.
For example, the Food Systems AIM workshop in April 2015 spawned several distinct working sub-groups of the Food Systems group, focusing different aspects of the food system. To organize their activities, they created a Dietary Inequality Project and an Urban Food Model Project.
From a group's main page, you can access group projects or create a new project by clicking "Projects" on the left menu, then selecting a project from the list or clicking "Add Project."
A project has several tools, which can be accessed from the left menu inside the project page:
- Assets: for sharing information in Databases or Files. This is the dropbox / Google Drive - type feature of the Hub that centralizes file sharing. If you want to share others' papers discretely within a small group, this is the place to do it.
- Team: shows who is working on the project. If you create a project from inside a group, your other group members will have access. Project membership can be extended to non-group members using the "Edit Team" link in the upper right. When you set up your project, you can make it searchable or hidden.
- To Do: helps you track tasks, including who's responsible for them and deadlines. Great for remembering who's doing what!
- Notes: as it sounds, a place to keep notes about the project.
