Introduction to projects

In this section, we discuss every aspect of both setting up and managing a project. The subsequent articles explain how to create, name, open, export, transfer, archive, and delete your projects. 

Before you work on new projects, let’s explore the Project Window.

The Project Window is where you manage all projects – both the ones you create and the ones that have been shared with you.

Click on the Moqups Main Menu button and choose Open Projects. This will open the Dashboard in an adjacent browser tab, and will immediately display the Project Window.


In the Dashboard’s top menu, along with the Project Window tab, you’ll also see tabs for Teams and Account. The Dashboard makes it easy to get a quick snapshot of your team’s activity, and to work on multiple projects simultaneously.

You can navigate directly to your Dashboard’s URL at; if you’re already in the Editor, any in-app links/buttons for Projects, Teams or Accounts will automatically open the dashboard in a new tab.

Here’s an overview of the Project Window’s layout:

  • On the far right of the Dashboard’s top toolbar, you’ll find the name and avatar of the account you are working in.
  • At the top of the left sidebar is the Create New Project button, along with a list of project category tabs that help you quickly filter your projects. Beneath that, you’ll find the status of your Account Usage quota.
  • Under the Search Projects input is a list of all active projects. 


To the left of each project’s title is the project’s Link Sharing Status icon. Underneath the title is the avatar and username of the project’s creator – and the date when the project was last modified.

To the right of the project’s title are ‘quick action’ buttons that let you jump directly into Edit or View mode. And further to the right is the More dropdown menu. 

To the far right of the Search input are the Sort and View options. You can sort projects by last date edited – in either ascending or descending order. And you can choose to view projects in either Thumbnail or List view.

We will cover all the actions you can perform directly from the Project Window – including those listed in the More dropdown – in the subsequent articles of this section.
