Creating a project

Before you do anything else, you need to create a project. If you are not a member of any projects yet, you will see a Create project link on the right side of the Taiga front page. If you are a member of at least one project, the link to create a new one is under the folder icon in the top menu.

The only choice you have to make during project creation (apart from entering the project name and description) is between a Scrum and Kanban project:

  • Scrum is more useful for longer running projects with regular releases and milestones where you can plan upfront and things are more predictable.

  • Kanban is a more appropriate choice for projects that are more volatile and reactive in nature, and where priorities change often.

Your choice will determine which modules (modules being for example an issue tracker or a kanban board) are enabled on your project by default. However, you can enable or disable any modules you want at any later time in the admin interface.

Make sure you create your project as Public, so that others can see it as well.

Once you have created your project, you can either tweak its settings in the admin interface, or you can continue by creating user stories.
