Projects: how do you use them?


#1

How are you guys using “Projects” within Cloudways?

My main one is called “Dev” and everything just goes in there, so I feel like I’m not really benefiting from the functionality.

Any creative uses?


#2

I think is just a way to categorize your applications/work. Nothing more.

I use it to categorize websites on the type of license / SLA they have with me.


#3

Thanks @jeroen you’ve got me thinking about it a bit more laterally.

It would be nice if it were an optional field.


#4

I’ve used it to distinguish between sites belonging to different customers.

You can sort on project and it shows in the list of applications.


#5

Haven’t used it. We preface any dev domains title with DEV and remove it when they go live.


#6

How do you create an Application without assigning it to a Project?


#7

Don’t you always have a development application as well?


#8

If it’s a new site then the DEV site is the only one and then becomes LIVE at some point. If it’s a cloned site for some reason (client wants to test,we want to test) then there are two sites LIVE and DEV.


#9

I use them to sort apps by Dev and Production. The production sites are then categorised by the hosting plan they are on.
