Manage the project dashboard

Every project has its own project dashboard on the CGC. This dashboard displays information about the project, its project members, and its tasks. From the project dashboard, you can search and add files and apps to your project.

Project administrators can add collaborators as project members. You can see the status of each workflow execution (a 'task'), and the results of completed workflows.

You can also access project settings. You can also navigate around your project with the tabs in upper right corner.


Project Dashboard

Check the project type

There are two types of projects on the CGC: Open Data Projects and Controlled Data Projects. The Controlled Data Projects have a red tag labelled 'CONTROLLED' with a lock symbol next to the project name, as shown below:

Use Project Description as a Notepad

The Project Description panel is a shared notepad for you and your collaborators in a project. Here, you can record anything you'd like about your project. For instance, you can record the details of your project, its aims, and the experimental context. You can also use markdown to add formatting to your notes.


Knowledge Center links

We pre-populated the Project Description with Knowledge Center links to help you started. We encourage you to take a look at them.

Add Project Members and Set Permissions

The Project Members panel shows your collaborators. Collaborators are specific to projects. If you are the project administrator, you can control collaborator access to the project by managing their permissions. The button + Add someone to this project enables you to invite collaborators to your project.

##View Tasks and Their Status

A task is an individual execution of a workflow. The Tasks panel shows the most recent tasks in a project along with their execution status: completed, aborted, or failed. It also lets you see the completion percentage of all currently running tasks.

The Tasks panel also lets you check which project member executed which task and the time that the task was initiated. Read more about executing analyses.
