Public Projects

Public projects are a great way to get your message out to your community. Share your product roadmap, best practice guides, marketing plans, or community update -the possibilities are endless.

When a project is made public on Avaza, we give search engines (Google etc) information about the project so that they can include it in their search results. This means that your users can use a search engine to find the project. Awesome!

Making a project public grants anyone on the internet access to the project details. Be certain that the information being shared is not confidential and is appropriate for public consumption. Much like other public communication like a blog post, marketing video or an email, you’ll want to create a Private project first where you and your team can work out ideas and coordinate on what you want to share. Once it is ready, mark the project public and let the world benefit from your ideas.
