How to Create Projects

Projects inside of CoSchedule are where everything happens. There are multiple kinds of projects each with many functionalities. The Project Types available to you will vary depending on your plan. 

Create Projects on the Calendar

Steps to Create Projects on your CoSchedule Calendar:
  1. Click the plus sign on the date you want to schedule this project or click +Create
  2. Select Project
  3. Enter a title, add labels, select an owner, and schedule the project (this information can be changed after the Project is created)
  4. Click Create and the project will open

Add Project Attachments

Once you have started a new project, work with project attachments to create content or add files. Simply select the attachments you want to add to your project.

Text Editor

The Text Editor allows you to create copy with formatting and upload images and videos. It will also give you access to other content converting options.


Upload a file inside the attachment. After uploading a file you will be able to preview, download, or upload a new version of the file. File versions will be tracked.

Google Doc

Attach a Google Doc, Sheet, or Slide to the Project. After attaching a Google Doc you will be able to open it within the project or open it in Google Drive.

Social Campaign

Add a Social Campaign to your Project. Please note that only one Social Campaign can be added to each Project.

Marketing Assistant

Marketing Assistant is only available in Marketing Calendar Pro and Marketing Suite. Use CoSchedule's AI-powered Marketing Intelligence Assistant to write first-draft copy, generate new ideas, and more.

Linked Projects

Link another Project to the Project you are working on to make jumping between Projects easier. You can link multiple projects from within this type of Attachment.
Note: If you are working with integration projects, you must create the integration project during the creation step. These are not available to add to a project later as an attachment. If you are working with WordPress and have already created a post’s copy inside of the text editor option, you can convert it to WordPress.

Custom Fields

Custom Fields are only available in Marketing Suite.
Custom Fields let you create points for specific data using drop downs, dates, text fields, and more. You can add a custom field to your project to get additional information or add it to your request forms to get further context from submitted requests.
