With Foleon, every Foleon Doc you create is part of a project. Each project has its own settings: a hostname, Google Analytics code, and default logos. These settings apply to every Foleon Doc within a project.
See how projects fit into the Foleon account structure.
On your dashboard, you’ll find a button for your projects on the left sidebar.
In the Project overview, you can create a new project (1), select a project you want to work in (2), go to the project settings (3), Create a new Foleon Doc (4), and manage existing Docs (5). You can check who created a project and when (6).
All project settings explained
Once you’ve selected a project from the list, you can change its settings via the button project settings.
⚠️ All of these project settings apply to every Foleon Doc within a project. If you’ve made changes to your project settings, you’ll have to republish all previously published Docs within that project to set your changes live for each Foleon Doc.
Let’s dive into what the different project settings mean and what they can do.
Project name: The project name is only visible in our platform to help you stay organized.
Project alias: The project alias is used in preview URLs. If you’re not using your own root domain or subdomain, it is also in published URLs.
⚠️ Make sure that the project alias is unique. Having multiple projects with the same alias will lead to issues with your preview.
The hostname: By default, your Foleon Docs will be visible on:

Google Analytics code: Our platform offers built-in Foleon Analytics that gives you access to the most important performance metrics on your content. However, if you’re looking for more detailed data, you can also choose to keep track of your performance with Google Analytics by inserting your Google Analytics tracking ID.

Deleting a project
When you scroll down in the project settings via your dashboard, you see a button to delete the project. Be aware that this deletes the project and all Foleon Docs within that project.
⚠️ Important note: if you’re planning to delete a project that contains published Foleon Docs, make sure you set them offline first. Otherwise, they will remain online. Read more about setting up a Doc offline in our article: About Foleon Doc context menus Online.
Moving a Foleon Doc to another project
If you want to move a Foleon Doc from one project to another, you can do that by clicking the 3 dots located on the Doc. From there, the option 'Move to other project' will appear. You can choose the new project from the drop-down menu and select Move.

The Foleon Doc Quick Actions (3 little dots), also known as the "Kebab" menu, offers different ways of interacting with your content. Read all about it in this article.
