Begin makes it insanely easy to stay focused on what's important.
And since Begin seamlessly integrates with your team's Slack workspace, so you can work right where you communicate with your team.
The basic Begin organization looks like this:
- Each teammate is a member of a Begin workspace (and each Begin workspace corresponds to a Slack Workspace)
- Workspaces have projects
- Projects contain tasks
- Tasks have an owner
Teammates (i.e. people, or "users")
- As a teammate, you'll see all your current workspaces in the workspace navigator on the left of Begin.
- Also: your Begin account can be part of multiple teams simultaneously, allowing you to switch Begin workspaces with ease!
- Each Begin workspace corresponds to a Slack Workspace.
- So if you're a member of the
Yeti SeekersSlack workspace and install Begin, you'll soon be a member of the
Yeti SeekersBegin workspace, too.
- Projects are how tasks are organized in Begin (much like channels are how messages are organized in Slack).
- There are three types of projects you need to know about:
- Unshared - By default, every teammate gets their own Unshared project, which is a completely private list that only you can see. Unshared also happens to be the place your new tasks will go by default, unless specified otherwise. Click here to learn more about your Unshared project.
- Public - This is the most common type of Begin projects. Created from public Slack Channels, public projects allow your teammates to easily join up, or just see what's going on. Learn more about public projects and task privacy here.
- Private - When your work is on a need-to-know basis, private projects have you covered. Create a private project by using Begin in a private Slack channel; your teammates can only join if invited, and tasks are never shared. Learn more about private projects and task privacy here.
