Projects

Learn about projects in SpecFuse and how you can organize your software projects and specifications.

All specifications in SpecFuse are grouped into projects. A project generally represents a specific software solution or app that you are working on. However, you are free to create a project even for a specific component or initiative within your application.


Any users can define a project. Only the user that created the project can see it unless they choose to add other users to the team.


When you add a user, they will receive a notification to let them know and will immediately be able to access the new project.


Define a project

  • Select Create Project from the action button.
  • Enter a name for the project.
  • Optionally, enter information about your product strategy.
  • Click Save.


After saving, you will be taken to the strategy view for your new project. This summarizes the project name and product strategy.


Changing projects

It is possible to be on more than one project team. When you have more than one project, you will see a dropdown arrow next to the current project name in the top bar.


  • Click on your current project name in the top bar.
  • Click the name of the project you want to switch to.


Project admins

When you create a project, you will automatically be added to it as an Admin. Project admins are able to add and remove other users or change their role.


Adding a user

  • While logged into your project, select Admin from the menu.
  • Click Team from the sub-menu.
  • Click the + button.
  • Search for a user and click Save.
  • The user is now added to the project and will be notified.


Removing a user

  • While logged into your project, select Admin from the menu.
  • Click Team from the sub-menu.
  • Click on the x button next to a user's name.
  • Accept the confirmation.
  • The user is now removed from the project and will be notified.


Changing a user's role

  • While logged into your project, select Admin from the menu.
  • Click Team from the sub-menu.
  • Click on the user's current role (Admin or Team Member).
  • Select the new role from the dialog box and click Save.
  • The user now has the new role and will be notified.
