Nuclino basics

Your Nuclino team has four key components:

(A) Workspaces – A Workspace represents a place to organize your team's information around projects or topics such as design, development, or engineering. It's where you collaborate with colleagues or friends.

(B) Clusters – Clusters keep items (C) organized and grouped together. They can act as simple folders or can be used to create a workflow where items move across clusters representing various stages of progress.

(C) Items – The fundamental unit of a workspace is an item. Items are documents containing pieces of information such as how-to guides, meeting notes, ideas – anything you want to store, share, and collaborate on. Each item can be filled with text, lists, images, and more.

(D) Views – Views visualize the content of your workspace in different ways. Use the "All" view to browse through documentation, the "Recent" view to find the most recently updated items, the "Board" view to track progress, and the "Graph" view to get a high-level overview.

If you want to use Nuclino as a project management tool, a useful way to organize your items would be to create clusters called "To do", "In progress", and "Done" and track your progress using the board view. As your team completes their tasks they can easily drag and drop items to the Done cluster.

Nuclino can also act as your team's knowledge base where you can store and share information that remains unchanged for long periods of time – company policies, brand guidelines, and so on – you might want to cluster your items by topics or departments.

Keep in mind that Nuclino is fully customizable and can be easily adapted to your team's unique needs. You can have multiple workspaces for different teams, departments, and topics within your company, and set up each of them in the way that works best for you team.
