Organize Work with Projects

Introducing Projects, your new organizational cornerstone within the Coginiti Catalog. This feature revolutionizes the way you manage, access, and collaborate on various assets, offering a streamlined approach that complements your workflow preferences.

With Projects, you can synchronise your efforts, streamline your workflow, and lay the groundwork for shared development experiences.

Getting Started

Create a project

  1. On the left sidebar, navigate to the Catalog.
  2. Right-click on any existing Catalog asset to bring up the context menu.
  3. Choose 'New Project' to create a new entity.
  4. Provide the project details:
    1. In the 'Project name' field, input the name of your project. The name must start with a lowercase or uppercase letter (a-z, A-Z), a digit (0-9), or an underscore (_).
    2. In the 'Project description' (optional) field, provide a brief description of your project.
    3. Use the 'Project location' drop-down to alter the project's path if needed. The default path is the location where you initiated project creation.
  5. Click 'Create'.

⚠️ Please note, a project cannot include another project within it.

Create a Project from an Existing Folder

  1. Right-click on any existing Catalog folder to access the context menu.
  2. Choose 'Convert to Project' to transform the folder into a new entity.
  3. Provide the project details:
    • The 'Project name' field allows you to rename the project if necessary.
    • In the 'Project description' (optional) field, offer a concise description of your project.
    • The 'Project location' drop-down lets you change the project's path if required. The default path corresponds to your existing folder's location.
  4. Click 'Create'.

🔎 NOTE: Coginiti offers a quick and efficient way to locate the asset you need. Utilize the search box at the top of the Catalog panel to swiftly find all assets containing the word or phrase in their name. Hover over the asset to view its full path.

Tips for Using Projects

  • Structure your projects in a way that mirrors your workflow. Use folders and sub-folders to categorize and manage different aspects of your projects efficiently.
  • Choose clear and descriptive names for your projects and their components. This makes it easier to identify and navigate to the right project quickly.
  • Share projects with team members for collaborative work. Assign appropriate access levels (Viewer, Editor, Publisher) to manage how each team member interacts with the project.
