Share your work, progress, roadmaps and ideas with public projects
Now you can share your work, progress, roadmaps and ideas with public projects. This lets you easily gather feedback from clients and from anybody who's interested in the progress of your projects.
Public projects are a great place to engage with your community, share your product’s development, get feedback from users and keep everybody up to date on releases or any issues.
You'll find a new option under the project settings that lets you set a project to public or private. By default, all projects are private and are visible only to your team and the people you have invited to it.
When you set your project to public then it is visible to anyone with the URL, but it's still secure because the URL contains a random and cryptographically secure token.
There are a couple of permissions you can set on the public project. You can hide and show time tracking and task estimates. Let public users add comments to tasks.
You can share your projects as a board and as a list. We use the layout that you have set at the moment when you make the project public.
Public project board view.
Public project list view.
Another great thing about this new feature is that anyone can join the discussion, just like the public tasks feature. They don't need an account in Breeze. Just enter your email address and we'll send them a unique link that they can use to add comments to the project.
You can mention users in comments, just like in private projects, and the public users will receive email notifications. To generate a new secure URL for the public project make the project private and then public again.
Using Breeze public projects means that you don't have to spend half your time in two different systems, one for staff and one for the public. You can update one and everyone can see it.
That's the gist of public projects. Please let us know what you think. If you decide to use public projects and would like to share them then please tweet us at @BreezeTeam.
