Projects quickly bring together a few aspects of XcooBee and configure them for you automatically. This helps you solve specific problems quickly such as managing and event signup or asking for donations.
Many projects require that users connect with outside services such as Google Drive or Stripe Payment processing. You use a Project Wizard to walk you through the process of configuring and changing projects but for the initial setup you also need to prepare some information.
For projects to work you should first configure your basic account. This includes:
- Generating XcooBee API keys and authorizing XcooBee to use them on your behalf.
- Generating PGP Keys and authorizing XcooBee to use them on your behalf
Setup your Campaign Basic Information
