Working with projects
Projects are where you and your team work with pictures and videos. The projects homepage shows you all the projects you currently belong to, including your sample project, which is pre-loaded with examples of data & tags to help you explore some different use cases of Newmetrix. The homepage is the first thing you see when you log in.
To open a project, click its thumbnail or click on its name in the left sidebar. You'll see links to its 6 project views appear:
