Building Your First Project for Testing


For the sake of all of our tutorials, we suggest creating a new project specifically for testing. This will serve as an area for you to freely explore the functionality of Shipyard without the fear of affecting anything else in the platform.

Creating your Testing Project

  1. Using the navigation on the left-side of the screen, click on Projects. This will cause the navigation menu to expand.

  2. Click on View All Projects. This will take you to the All Projects page.

    If this is your first time in the platform, you should only see a project called Playground.

  3. Click the New Project button in the top-right corner of the screen.

  4. Give your project a name of Testing.

  5. In the timezone field, start typing Central .

  6. Select the US/Central time zone by clicking the name.


Feel free to search for and select your own time zone instead.

Your setup should look like this:

  1. Click the Create button in the bottom-right corner of the screen.

You've now successfully created your first project named Testing.

After creating a project, you'll be immediately redirected into it. You should see the following screen which directs you to create your first Vessel.
