What is a project?

All members of an organization conduct and manage various tasks depending on their roles and collaborate with each other to achieve the organization’s goals. In Swit, you can create projects suitable for each topic and objective, invite relevant members, share, assign, and manage specific tasks, keep track of the overall progress by viewing them in various modes and adjust due dates. Through a close pairing with the channel function for communication within the Swit platform, you can establish a proper workflow and maximize collaboration efficiency and work productivity.

Public vs. private projects

When creating a project or later in the project settings, you can make the project public or private. Public and private projects have the following features.

  • Public projects: All members can join by browsing projects.
  • Private projects: Can only be joined by invitation from those already in the project. The ic_lock_line_18.png icon is displayed next to the project’s name in the project list, and when non-members browse projects, private projects are not shown.


Once projects are set to private, you cannot make them public again.

Project list, starred projects, folders

The left panel displays all projects you joined. You can use some useful features to conveniently categorize, arrange, and access projects.

  • Unread projects: If you have unread project notifications, they will be piled under Unread at the top of the project list.
  • Starred projects: You can star frequently visited or important projects. Click on ic_star_line_18.png icon at the left of the project name to start or unstar it. Starred projects are added under the Starred label on the top while maintaining the current order.
    • Project folders: Use folders to group starred projects according to their characteristics or task topics.
      • To make a folder, click on the ic_add_line_18.png icon next to the Starred label, and click Create folder.

Various view modes

Swit offers Kanban, List, Timeline, Calendar, and Dashboard views as well as options to view tasks by Status, Bucket, and Assignee. Additionally, in view mode, there's a tab feature that allows you to add and manage websites related to the project. This variety of views helps users categorize and understand their tasks in the most suitable way.


For tasks that don't have a specific schedule yet, you can first write them in the Backlog and store them. Later, you can drag and drop them to any other section whenever you want.

Kanban view

This view Enables you to visualize task management conveniently. The OG data for attachments and links are displayed as images that look like sticky notes.


List view

Shows the list of tasks simplified based on task titles. Since the list view only displays the most relevant information for each task, it is useful when you need to can be used when you need to quickly figure out the overall situation of the tasks with task titles.

At the top left of the view screen, you will find the following tabs that allow two different ways of categorizing the tasks in the Timeline view.
