Creating a New Project

Before creating a project, your administrator must have installed CONTENTdm and configured your CONTENTdm Server with at least one collection.

  1. From the Project Client Home tab, click Create New Project. The New Project wizard displays.

  2. Enter the CONTENTdm Server URL. The URL may begin with either http or https protocols. Then enter your user name and password. Click Next.

  3. Select the collection where you will upload items. When you upload items from your project, they will always go to the specified collection's pending queue to await approval by an administrator. Click Next.

  4. Name your project or review the name provided. The name should not exceed more than 128 letters, numbers and spaces. Only alphanumeric characters may be used.

    Project names are used only within the Project Client to help you organize your work. They do not display to the end user.

    If you want to make this project available to other Project Client users, check Share this project on a network with other users. This saves the items in the Project Client and project settings to the shared project location you specify. (Note: Only one user at a time can work with a shared project. Simultaneous editing is not supported. For more information, see Sharing a Project. Click Finish.

    The Home tab displays, with the project you created as the active project. You can review collection and project information, and get started adding and editing items.

To learn about adding items to your project, see Adding Items and Objects.
