The object Project is very useful if you want to keep track of all the projects you’re working on, whether it’s for work, school, or personal projects. By creating a structure for a project, you can easily organize and track its progress over time.
To create a structure for a project, it will have the following properties:
- Name: The name of the project.
- Description: A brief summary of the project, highlighting its purpose and goals.
- Tags: Tags are great to have with every content type. You can tag projects with different themes or topics, making it easier to find them in different contexts.
- Status (single select tag property): To differentiate and filter projects by their current status, we create the tags “Planning”, “In Progress”, “On Hold”, and “Completed”. This can also be added later when your projects database becomes crowded.
- Start Date (date property): The date when the project started.
- Due Date (date property): The date when the project is due.
- Collaborators (text property): Other people or teams involved in the project.
- Notes (blocks property): This is where you can capture more detailed information about the project, such as its scope, budget, resources needed, and milestones to be achieved. If we want to further structure our content type, we can also create multiple “blocks properties”. You can also use templates to create a structure for your notes section.
You can adjust these properties at any point. You can remove them if you think they’re unnecessary or add new ones. Learn more about it here.
