Creating a project

Organizing your research in projects

This article will teach you how to organize your research in projects and how to create a project.

A project in consider.ly is foremost a set of data that belongs together as well as a workspace to analyze this data. A project can contain notestags, and insights. Also, you can add properties to projects to provide context.

To get you started, here are some hints on how to employ projects in consider.ly within your research:

  • In terms of UX research and user research, a project might cover the data and analysis of a usability test, a set of interviews, a diary study, or a focus group.
  • In a project often only a particular product state is considered (such as an early prototype) – so you’d create one project for each product iteration.
  • If you’re working in sprints, a project might cover one sprint.
  • Also, within a project, you might have one or multiple hypotheses that you wish to verify or falsify given your data.

You can create as many projects as you like, so feel free to organize your research the way it fits your needs.

Creating a new project

After you log in to your account, you see the project dashboard on which your projects are shown.

  1. To create a new project click the blue Create new project button in the top left corner.
  2. A new project will be created and opened.
  3. Click on the project name (which is “Untitled project” by default) and enter a descriptive name.

💡 Best give your project a meaningful name so that you’ll find it later on (in the dashboard, searches, etc.).

Meaningful names, such as “John’s interview study for product X”, are important so that you and your team can properly work with the project. This is especially useful later on to mentally match search results or insights to the respective projects.
