A Project must belong to a Client and therefore, it is not possible to create a Project if you have not created your first Client in Gemma. You can create a Project from the top Create buttons of Gemma interface.
which will then open a list of Clients to chose from to be the Client of that Project. You can use the search bar at the top of the Client list panel to filter through the list and then select that Client. The “Add Project” button will be only activated when a Client is selected from the list.
Another method of creating a new Project is to add it directly from the Client Edit panel of a Client by clicking on the “Add Project” button ad the bottom of the panel. In both methods, a Project Create panel will be opened by Gemma which you can enter main details of a Project.
