YouTrack Cloud 2024.2 Help


A project represents a collection of effort that contributes to the creation of a pre-defined product, service, or result. In YouTrack, a project contains all the issues and articles that are related to this effort as well as the team members who work towards the pre-defined goal.

By creating a project in YouTrack, teams can streamline their work processes, enhance collaboration, and maintain a clear and organized overview of their tasks. This contributes to increased efficiency, improved communication, and better overall project management. Consider creating a new project whenever you encounter any of the following situations:

  • Your team starts work on a new product or service.

  • You want to track the activity for a specific sub-team, like marketing or UX design.

  • Your team would like to follow a distinct process, separate from other teams that use the application.

  • You want to isolate issues and articles that contain sensitive or confidential information or control access permissions more granularly.

  • Your organization works with multiple clients or customers and want to keep communication and tasks organized and easily identifiable for each client.

Creating additional projects provides a way to organize and manage work in a more focused and efficient manner, catering to the specific needs, teams, or aspects of your organization's projects. Each project acts as an independent workspace, allowing for customization based on the unique requirements of the work it encompasses. There's no limit to the number of projects you create in YouTrack — it's up to you to decide how and when to create a project based on the needs of your organization.
