Next, you have the option to rename the template, and choose which team the project should go in. You can share the project with your team, or make it private to yourself. Click Create Project when you’re finished. Initially, you may want to make the project private so you can customize it to best fit your workflow before making it public to the team.

If you have a recurring workflow, you can make your own template and then copy the project each time you need to use it.
