To start using Kahua, you will need to be able to navigate projects using Project Finder. The available features in the Project Finder application depend on how many projects you can access and your permission level. More details and advanced features are outlined below, including:
First, open the Project Finder application. EITHER click directly on your active project name in the center of the header OR select Project Finder in the application tray on the left.
Project Finder contains two types of items:
- Items with a Foldericon (sometimes called a partition) contains projects within it.
- Items with an Arrowicon are projects.
Open a Project
Select a folder or project by clicking directly on the Name. Selecting a folder will display folders and projects inside it. Selecting a project will open the project and navigate away from Project Finder.
Open a Folder (Partition)
To open a folder (partition) to work directly within it, EITHER select the SELECT link next to the folder name in the breadcrumb OR click directly on the Upward Arrow icon in the list.
Favorite a Project
For users that have many projects or commonly access the same folders and projects from different places in the project hierarchy, making those projects and partitions “favorites” makes it easier to find and access them.
To Favorite a Project (or Folder/Partition):
- Select the Staricon next to the Project or Folder/Partition name. Starred projects will appear in the My Projects section.
- Select the My Projects tab to view starred projects.
View/Edit Project Details
If you have permission to view or edit project details, you will see a pencil icon beside the project name and in the projects list in Project Finder. Select the Pencilicon to open the project record in a modal window.
Display Project Numbers
With Project Finder you have the option to display the project number as part of the project name. In the list you can sort by number or name.
To display Project Numbers:
Select the Profile Icon on the right side of the header.
Select My Settings.
Select the General tab.
Check the Show project number checkbox.
Once enabled, you will be able to view and sort by project number in your Project Finder Application.
