Project basics

Projects are the building blocks of how Datashift organizes your data.

You can think of a project like a folder on your computer. Inside that folder contains files — in Datashift we call them datafiles. So a project is simply a grouping of datafiles.

You can create as many projects as you need to keep yourself organized.

Projects can be set to have one of two different privacy levels:

  1. Private
    — By default it is only visible to you, but can be shared with as many people on your team as you want.
  2. Public
    — Searchable to anyone with a Datashift account. Anyone can follow your public project, however, they will never be able to modfity or delete the data it contains.
