The following information only applies to next-gen projects.

To check which type project you need help with, look at the bottom of your project’s left-hand sidebar:

  • If you see an icon stating You’re in a next-gen project with Give feedback and Learn more menu items, you're in a next-gen project.

  • If you don't, you're in a classic project. Check out our classic project documentation.

The Code feature gives you greater visibility of your teams' work by automatically linking and displaying your teams' code repositories in your project.
