How to use Projects?
You can use Projects to track high-level themes by organizing related topics into projects. This will make it easy to track the collective performance of a group of topics and compare their contribution to the project.
- Bug tracking - create a topic for each known technical issue and assign all of them to the "Bugs" project to track the quality of your product and identify the bugs that impact it the most;
- Feature requests - collate all feature requests into a single project to easily compare the volume and sentiment trends associated with each request;
- Common questions - it can be useful to create a topic for each popular question and collate them into one project. This will help you compare how much volume is driven by questions vs bugs vs feature requests.
- Organize topics by department - different teams will be responsible for different aspects of your product or service. You can use Projects to organize topics by the team or department which is responsible for tracking them, e.g. "Product Team", "Support Team" or "Marketing Team".
