Quickstart Guide to Teamwork

What is Teamwork?

Teamwork is a project management software tool that we use to manage our projects. It is a secure online site where we store documents, files and information relating to your project, and where you can send materials and assets. It enables us to track our communications with you, record project milestones and timelines, and generally makes working together even easier.

How do I use it?

The software is beautifully intuitive. If you’ve already used Basecamp with us, you should find the switch relatively painless!  As soon as we add you to the system, you will receive an email from Teamwork with your username and password.  Use those details to login to the Jumpstart repository.

After you have successfully logged in, you will be directed to your Dashboard, where you can see recent activity (messages, files, tasks, notes, etc.) relating to your project. Please note that privacy settings within Teamwork mean that your project details can only be seen by us and you.  Click on any of the items to see more information.

Navigate around to familiarise yourself with the system and the progress so far on your project (to view the main features, see this article).  You will also receive emailed notifications as and when things occur, with links to view (or comment, or reply to) the message, task, note, etc.  We think you’ll find the system easy to use. For example, if you want to reply to a message, just scroll to the end and click the “Add a reply” button – other areas simply have a comments box.  If you get stuck however, please feel free to contact us or view the official Teamwork online tutorials or refer to these specific guides:
