Projects are where you do your design work in Abstract. There are three types of Projects: Team Projects, Private Projects, and Personal Projects.
To create a Project:
- Open the Abstract desktop app.
- Click the dropdown menu in the center of the Abstract titlebar and select the Organization you want to create the Project in.
- If you want to create a Personal Project, select Your personal projects.
- Select NEW PROJECT in the top right corner.
- In the Name section, title your Project according to the guidelines your team laid out about how to organize Projects. For example, if you decided to organize your Projects by platform, you can title your Project “Web.”
- In the Description section, give your team details about what is and is not part of this Project.
- Select a Project Color if you want.
- If you’re on a Business or Enterprise plan, you can make a Private Project by checking the box next to Make project private.
- Note: We recommend that Projects stay public to your Organization unless you have a reason to make the Project private.
Now, you’re ready to add files to your Project.
- Team Projects are where you collaborate with your Organization on work together. Anyone in your Organization can access Team Projects (unless you make them private 👇). You can invite Guests to Team Projects.
- Private Projects are where you collaborate with specific individuals. Only Members or Guests who have been specifically invited can access Private Projects. [Private Projects are only available to Business and Enterprise plans.]
- Personal Projects are where you do work by yourself. Only you can access your Personal Projects. You can’t collaborate on Personal Projects. To access Personal Projects, click the dropdown menu in the center of the Abstract titlebar and select Your personal projects.
