What is a Project?
Think of a Project as a folder - it's a way to save articles, bills, members, committees, or most any content in CQ Federal for later. Whether you want to return to a Project to build a report or to read content later in the day when you have more time, Projects will hold those web pages for you in an organized, easily-accessible way.
How do I create a new project?
To create a new project, go to the Create menu and select Projects. Name your project and add an optional description and press save.
How do I add content to my project?
To add content to your new project, got to a bill, member, topic, vote or committee page using search or streams, and click the “Add to project” button on the toolkit along the top of the page. You can add all kinds of content in CQ to projects whenever you see the "Add to project" button. You can sort the display order of items in your project by clicking on the column titles.
How do I share my project with team members?
To share a project with other members in your account, click the “Share” button in the left hand corner of the project page, beneath the project description. Other users in your account will be notified that you shared the project with them through their My CQ.
Note: Sharing a project with other users in your account will allow them to edit your project or use it to create reports. To make a project private again after it has been shared, click “Make Private” in the left hand corner of the project page.
How do I delete a project?
To delete a project, click the “Delete forever” button in the right hand corner of the project page. A project cannot be restored after it is deleted. You cannot delete a project that was created by someone else in your account.
How do I change what items are in my project?
Items can live in more than one project. To add an item to another project while keeping it in its project of origin, click the white space next to the item’s headline in the project page. You’ll see a few actions appear beneath the project description. You can choose to copy the item to another project, move the item to another project, or remove the item from the project.
You can also drag and drop items into other projects to quickly move them.
