The creation of a new project involves some steps that vary depending on the project type. We will go over all steps here so you understand this process fully.
Here you set some basic information about the project. You must choose the Project Type, give the project a name (a title), and describe your project clearly. You will get better results if you think of a title that represents what you want to get achieved by this project, and if you describe what you need very clearly. This will help Coders know if they are interested and capable of working on it, and make accurate bids. If you don't know which project type to choose, just follow these guidelines:
Mega Projects are a special kind of project. They are only used to group many projects under the same "umbrella", so you can manage them all together. Mega Projects don't get bids directly.
When you have done all this, just click on the Next button to go to the next step.
In this step you set this information about the project:
In this screen, you must mark all categories involved in the project. Marking the right categories will help you get to the right Coders for your project. Once you have marked all categories, press the Next button to get to the last screen.
This is the confirmation page, where you see a summary of all the info you have entered to define the project. Most of this information cannot be changed later, so be sure everything is ok before pressing the submit button. You can go back and change anything that needs to be changed now, before submitting.
When you create a Mega Project, you don't see steps 2 and 3. Instead, you get a screen that lets you enter by which data all projects you will create into this Mega Project should be finished.
When you create a Private Auction, a One on One Project or a Private Salary Project, you get an extra screen before step 2. In this screen, you invite the Coders you want to be able to bid on this project. Remember that in Private projects, only invited coders can bid. You can select Coders from your preferred list or search the Coders database using a form. If you are creating a One on One project, you can only invite one Coder to bid on your project.
