Introduction to the Ketura Tutorials

The tutorials listed in the sidebar on the right teach you how to accomplish a variety of tasks in Ketura. The Introductory Tour of Ketura is essential preparatory reading for understanding the tutorials.

Each tutorial builds upon its predecessors, so it is recommended that you tackle the tutorials in order.

Information Once you have worked through these tutorials, the Configuration Checklist for New Ketura Deployments will help you set up your new Ketura system.

Bottom-up, or top-down?

Many other project management systems take an exclusively top-down approach to setting up your projects. First, you create a project, populate it with milestones, then add individual work items (equivalent to issues and their tasks in Ketura) to each milestone.

If you wish, you can use Ketura that way too. However, Ketura is very flexible in that it also lets you gather your small-scale goals (issues) independently of any particular project and add them to project milestones later. Both approaches are complementary and can coexist when you use Ketura.

These tutorials take a somewhat bottom-up approach, first teaching you to create issues and tasks, and then building on those skills to show you how to manage projects and their issue-containing milestones. Once you have completed these tutorials, you will know everything you need to work either in a top-down or bottom-up way.
