Adding Pages to Your Project in Coordinate: A Step-by-Step Guide

Creating and managing a project in Coordinate becomes simpler and more organized when you add pages to your project. This blog post will provide you with detailed, step-by-step instructions on adding pages to your projects, creating global pages, and understanding the relationship between pages and templates in Coordinate.

What is a Page?

In Coordinate, a page is a designated space where you can provide static content, such as a readme file, FAQ, or a brief overview of your project's process. This content can be easily accessed by your clients whenever they need to understand more about the project. You can also incorporate various forms of content such as text, images, embedded videos, or code.

Step-by-step Guide to Adding a Page:

  1. In your project, look for the 'Add Page' option and click on it. This might typically be located in a menu or a toolbar.
  2. Name the page accordingly. For instance, if you are creating a page for general information, you might name it 'General Info'.
  3. Add the static content you want to share with your clients. This could be plain text, images, embedded videos, or code snippets.
  4. Once you have added the content, make sure to save your progress. The page will now appear as a tab which clients can access when they visit your project.

Adding Global Pages

Global pages come in handy when you want to share the same information across multiple projects. Instead of creating individual pages for each project, you can maintain them in one place.

Step-by-step Guide to Adding a Global Page:

  1. Navigate to 'Settings' from your project interface.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom and look for the 'Pages' section.
  3. Click on 'Create Global Page'.
  4. Name the page and add the content you wish to display across multiple projects. For example, you could create a page called 'Our Process' where you explain your standard project approach.
  5. Once you are satisfied with the content, save the page.
  6. You can now add this global page to any of your projects. Navigate to the project where you want to add the global page, click on 'Add Page' and select the global page from the options available.

Remember, if you want to edit a global page, you must navigate back to the 'Settings' section.

How Pages Work with Templates

A critical aspect of efficient project management is understanding how pages and templates work together. A template in Coordinate is a standard project layout that can be used repetitively for similar projects.

Step-by-step Guide to Adding Pages to Templates:

  1. Go to your templates and select the template where you want to add a page.
  2. Locate the 'Add Page' option within the template (often represented with an ellipsis or 'dot dot dot') and click on it.
  3. Choose the desired page, whether it's a specific page or a global one.
  4. Once you have added the page to your template, save your changes.

Now, every time you use this template for a new project, the added page will be automatically included.

Remember, whether you're adding a page to a specific project, creating a global page, or incorporating a page into a template, always ensure your content is relevant, informative, and beneficial to your clients. Do not hesitate to ask for help if you need it, and keep exploring the possibilities of Coordinate to make your project management more efficient and productive.
