Project, Group and User applications

Table of Contents

    Currently, there are three (3) different types of applications in our Add-ons. Each type has its own unique functionality within Freedcamp. For more information please see below.

    • Project - Project applications are displayed in blue along the taskbar and are specific to each and every project. For example, a more robust project might have Discussions, Milestones, and Calendar installed, while another project that is used for Issue Tracking might only have Issue Tracker installed. By default, project applications are accessible by anyone inside of the project.

    Project Applications are displayed in blue and can only be accessed inside of projects. Most of the core apps (Tasks, Discussions, Milestones, Time, Files) are project applications. They can be managed by navigating to Manage Projects page and clicking on the "manage apps & teams" button.

    • Group - Group applications are displayed in orange along the taskbar and are NOT specific to each project but can be accessed throughout multiple projects in a group. For example, you might have 4 projects that need Passwords. You can put those 4 projects in a group called, “Development”, and any data stored in the Passwords application will be accessible and shared between all 4 projects.

    Group Applications are displayed in orange and can be accessed outside of projects. They can be managed by navigating to  Manage Projects and clicking on the "Project Group Apps" button.

    Below we take a project application - Issue Tracker and a project group application - Password Manager and show you the difference.

    • User - User applications are displayed in green along the taskbar and are specific to individual users. For example, Tasky allows you to create, edit, and store a list of to-dos that only you can view. User applications have no connection to projects or groups, and are linked to your user account only.

    User Applications appear in green and can be accessed throughout the entire application. They can be managed by navigating to "Add-ons" and clicking on Add or Remove button.

    Inside a project you can access all three types of applications:

    1.  Project Applications
    2.  Project Group Applications
    3.  Personal (User) Applications

    On Dashboard you can access project (1) and project group applications (2):
