Project settings page
What you can do on this page
The Project settings page lets you change global settings for the current project, including
- Project name
- Project identifier
- Project time zone settings
- Project numeric precision
- Notification email address
- Project icon/logo
- Enable anonymous access
- Enable request membership to the project
The project name will be displayed on the Projects page and in the header or tabs in your browser. Since these titles are often truncated in browser tabs, it makes sense to choose one that will clearly differentiate your project even if truncated.
Mingle automatically creates a default project identifier based on the name you type, however you can change the project identifier as required. The project identifier forms the URL from where you access the project, so if changing the identifier, you may need to update any bookmarks and communicate this information to your team. The Identifier must be all lower case, less than 30 characters, and you must represent any spaces with underscores.
The project identifier is used in the Mingle API, so if you are using the API and want to change the identifier you will have to amend all API references accordingly.
The project description is displayed in the Current projects page. You can provide any additional context that a user might want to know about the project.
Advanced project settings
Project time settings
Project numeric precision
See project numeric precision for more information about this setting.
This value determines the precision with which your numeric properties are stored and formula properties are calculated. Decreasing this value could change existing data, permanently losing precision from any numeric values which are stored with greater than the new number of decimal places.
Project email address
This is the email address from which any system generated emails will be sent. e.g. email notifications.
You can specify an image that will appear in the Current projects page next to the project name.
Team member checkbox
When the Mingle Admin is creating a project they can check this box if (as Mingle Admin) they want to be included as a team member on the project. Once the project has been created, unchecking or checking this box has no effect.
Anonymous user access checkbox
When the Mingle Admin is creating a project they can check this box (if available) to enable the project for anonymous user access. Once the project has been created checking and unchecking this option will enable or disable anonymous access as appropriate.
Request membership checkbox
Mingle and project admins can set a project as visible in the project list to non-project members. When this option is set non-project members will see this project listed on the all projects page and can request access to the project. Project admins for that project will be notified of the request for access via email. Checking and unchecking this option will enable or disable this feature as appropriate. If the project does not have any project admins or the project admins do not have an email address associated with their accounts then non-project members will be unable to request membership even when this option is set.
