Project types

There are private and public projects.

Private projects

Only people assigned to the project can see it. The project Owner can manage who has access to the project in the Settings view.

Here is an example view, where the project Owner can manage project members:

Public projects

Public projects are freely available to view by everyone who has access to the Internet.

Also, in case of individual workspaces, you can invite collaborators to public projects only. Examples are:

Read how to set up a team workspace.

Only a project Owner can assign people to the project. Learn more about project roles.

Step 1

In the Project panel, click Settings, then click the People tab.

  • The tab displays the list of project members who already belong to the project.

  • Above the list is a field in which you can type an email or username of people you want to assign to a project. Neptune identifies names and emails for people who already have an account.

Step 2

Specify an email or username of a user you want to add.

Step 3

Set a role and click Invite.

  • If a user is registered in, s(he) can be added from the UI, under Project Settings > People. If the user is not yet registered in, s(he) can be invited by email. In any case, the user needs to accept the invitation, before s(he) appears in the list.

  • If the project is created in an individual workspace, you can only invite users to a public project. The user is notified by email and must accept the invitation to be added. You cannot add users to a private project.
