Creating Your First Structure

While there are endless ways to build a structure, we're going to show you some of our most popular (and useful) approaches, including our powerful automation tools and steps for adding issues manually.

We encourage you to experiment with the tools presented here, make several new structures and find some templates that will work well for you and your team

Your First Structure

Regardless of how you plan to build your structure, you first need to create it. To do so, go to the top menu and select Structure | Create Structure.

Create a new structure

You can also try our Welcome to Structure page - it contains several ideas and tutorials for building your own custom structures.

You have the option of using one of our template wizards to streamline the creation of your new structure, or starting with an empty structure. We encourage you to try our templates later, but for now let's select "Empty Structure."

Give your structure a name and select who it should be shared with (for more information, see Structure Permissions). When you're finished, click Create.

Next Steps

When the structure opens, it will be completely empty. In the next sections, we'll show you how to add and organize issues to a structure, using Automation. We will also discuss manually adding issues to a structure, but this is an advanced topic – so if you want to keep things simple, feel free to skip that part!
