The top navigation bar offers several useful options while you navigate through the various features of LaunchCycle. The bar stays the same no matter where you are on the site.
If you hover your mouse over the Projects button in the top left corner, you’ll see the various projects you have set up listed in a pop-up. You can select one of your projects from this list.
Creating a new project is as simple as coming up with a name and a description for a project.
Simply fill out the name and description fields,
whether or not to use this to track time,
and then select which company will have access to the Project’s information. You can narrow it down to specific people within a company also.
On your LaunchPad, under active projects (admins only), you will see the new Project Templates and click Add New Project Template.
Name it, enter the tasks to be shared in future projects and you are done.
If you want to see what someone else on the team is working on, head to “Team Tasks” in the upper left hand corner of the screen. Scroll over “Team Tasks” and a drop down list of all people will appear. If you click on a name, you will see that person’s tasks.
The help link gives you access to the help file for LaunchCycle.
Hovering your mouse over the settings link will give you a 5-item drop down menu.

To add a company logo, click “Add Company Logo Here” and upload an image from the company.
