VersionOne - Add a Project


In this chapter, we will see how to add a project in VersionOne.

Project is the backbone of a Project Management tool. Project represents a set of items and tasks that should be completed in a defined time to consider it as completed. Until a project finds its existence, none of other functionalities/tasks can be performed. Project groups all sprints/backlogs/tasks/issues etc. into one place. In this chapter, we will discuss about adding a project into VersionOne.

To add a project, a user should have the System Admin role.
