What is a Project?
An Innoslate project is a collection of entities, and a means of logically organizing information. A project can contain any number of requirements documents, system models, simulation results, reports, etc. Every entity belongs to a project.
Each project has a name, a description, its own database which is stored physically separate from other projects, and a list of users who have permissions to access that project.
Innoslate users have the ability to create any number of additional new projects, edit the name and description of existing projects, delete existing projects and share their existing projects with any other Innoslate user.
- A default project is created for you upon signing in to Innoslate for the first time.
The key to managing your projects in Innoslate is the new 'Manage Projects' dedicated page which was introduced in Innoslate 3.3 to replace the old 'Manage Projects' dialog used to manage projects in previous versions of Innoslate. This page allows a user to archive, create, delete, export, filter, rename, search, sort and unshare Innoslate projects.
Navigating to Manage Projects
From any view of Innoslate, open the ‘Switch Project’ drop-down located on the top navigation bar and click the ‘Manage Projects’ menu item as shown below:
For more information on creating a new project, see Creating Projects.
Functions Available for Existing Projects
Below is a list of available functions and a short description, click on the name of a function for more information.
|Archiving Projects||Archiving a project gives you the benefit of preventing that project from being listed in the 'Switch Project' drop-down.|
|Copying Projects||Copying allows you to create a duplicate of an existing project which includes all entities, diagrams, uploaded files, and comments.|
|Deleting Projects||Deleting a project permanently removes that project from your existing projects and deletes all associated data.|
|Exporting Projects||Exporting a project allows you to create a local backup of your project which can then be re-imported at a later date if need be.|
|Renaming Projects||Renaming a project allows you to change the name of an existing project so you can better distinguish it from your other projects.|
|Sharing Projects||Sharing a project gives another Innoslate user of your choice access to your project with a certain level of permissions.|
