With the following instructions you as an administrator can create your own demo project in Falcon and make the traffic lights light up! In 7 steps and about 30 minutes you will get a comprehensive overview of Falcon's core functions!
Switching to the Editing Area
If you are in your dashboard, select the Package icon at the top left of the screen.
or expand the tab "Projects" on the left to get to the project area.
Creating the Demo Project
Selecting the folder symbol in the upper left corner of the project area opens the project wizard. Please select the "Example Project" and the German language for the demo project.
Click "Next" to open the project profile, where you can briefly describe the project. Don't worry, you can change these settings afterwards:
Name = e.g. "Demo".
Description (max. 600 characters) = e.g. "My first project in Falcon".
Time start and end = Select "today" as start and an end that lies three or more months in the future.
Your fiscal year = e.g. January to December
Scaling = e.g. weekly
Project manager = yourself.
Press "Save" after your input.
Your demo project with a first measure package ("New package") now appears on the left as a new project tree.
Invite the team
Let your project rest for a while and use the settings icon at the bottom left of the screen to go to "User Administration", where you can invite your users (team members).
By confirming the plus symbol in the upper left corner above the user table, a smaller window opens. Please enter the e-mail addresses of the new users there and confirm each e-mail address with a comma or the Enter key.
By ticking the "Send invitations" box, you can invite the new users directly, so that the e-mail invitation would be sent automatically. It is better to leave this check box empty.
After selecting "Add", the users now appear in the user table. The e-mail symbol to the right of these users allows you to send the invitation manually later if required.
Please make sure that the new users have hub access (Power) but no hub ownership (Star). Thus they correspond to normal users without administrator permissions.
Note: In the columns with the star symbol and the power symbol, a check mark indicates that a user has hub ownership or hub access. Hub access is required in order to log into Falcon. This can be relevant if you later want to "keep" a user away from Falcon for a short time without changing the user permissions assigned elsewhere. A hub owner, on the other hand, receives full admin permissions.
Note: The purpose of the subsequent sending of user invitations is to allow you as administrator to create a project at your leisure and then assign responsibilities.
