Share your work and collaborate with other users in real time
To start a project, navigate to a dataset page you're interested in working with. If you have data access to this dataset, the Add to project button will be active.
This will show you some recent projects. You can either add this dataset to one of these, view all projects, or create a new project from scratch.
You can also create a project from the "Projects" tab of your workspace (click + New and give it a name), and then add the data you're interested in working with via the Add dataset button to the left of the black menu bar.
Manage a project
To view and update additional information about your project, click its name (Example project, in this case) in the middle of the black menu bar.
Rename your project by clicking the header at the top of the project information view.
Add your project to a study, or update its current study, in the Study section.
You can give other users access to view or edit your project, or transfer ownership to another user in the Sharing section. Learn more about collaborating on projects on our Sharing and privacy page.
You can add description of your project to documentation the details of your research aim or data manipulation strategy in the Description section.
You can see the data of last project activity, where your project was forked from, and how many others have forked your project in the description section.
Fork a project
You can duplicate a project by selecting Fork in the right side of the black menu bar.
It can be helpful to work from an exact duplicate of a project if you're a viewing a colleague's project and would like to test a similar data manipulation, or if you'll rely on similar data manipulations in a new research effort.
(Auto)saving a project
Projects automatically save immediately as you make any changes and will continue to run in the background if you close the window. You can always navigate back to this project later from the "Projects" tab of your workspace.
