Project Settings

Information

In this screen you can configure the basic (though important) settings for the selected project.

General settings

The following general settings are available:
  • Name: project display name (must be unique).
  • Subproject of: lets you define the parent project. The projects hierarchy is limited to 2 levels. A parent project cannot be itself a sub-project.
  • Description: description that appears on the project overview.
  • Identifier: used by the application for various things (eg. in URLs). It must be unique. Once the project is created, this identifier cannot be modified.
  • Homepage: homepage-link that appears on the project overview.
  • Public: if checked, the project can be viewed by all the users, including those who are not members of the project. If unchecked, only the project members have access to it, according to their role.

If there are any custom fields of the type "Project" configured by the administrator, they’ll show up behind the "Public"-setting noted above.

Trackers

Mindmakers lets you define which of the configured trackers (thus also their respective workflows) you are able to use within this specific project.

  • Trackers: select the trackers that you want to use for issues of the project. Only the administrator can define new trackers.

Custom fields

  • Custom fields: select the custom fields (of the type issues) that you want to use for issues of the project. Only the administrator can define new custom fields.

Note that some of these custom fields can be only configured (e.g. unchecked) if the issue custom field is not defined as a global issue custom field (which can be done by the administrator by checking the "For all projects" checkbox in the custom field create/edit view).

Modules

This screen lets you choose the modules you want to use for the project.

Disabling a module doesn’t delete the associated data. It only prevents users from accessing it. After a module was disabled, it can be re-enabled with all its data.
You can for example disable 'Issue tracking’ module for a single project. Existing issues are not deleted, you will be able to access them if you re-enable the module.

Members

This screen lets you define project members and their roles. A user can have only multiple role in a given project.

Versions

Projects versions allow you to track and plan changes. You can assign issues to versions and then view the list of assigned issues for each version on the roadmap.
