What is a Project in Folktale?

A Project in Folktale is a time-bound space for you to collect stories from your world.

Projects allow you to group your story requests and contributions together in a way that will allow you to analyse and track progress. This might be based on a location, an initiative, an event, or significant milestone.

⚠️Note: Only Folktale Admins are able to create new projects in a workspace.
