The default landing page for Hex users is the Projects page. You can quickly find projects you created and those shared with you and your Workspace.
Each section of the Projects page can be filtered by the projects' Category and Status, which are defined by Workspace administrators.
A variety of metadata about each Project is available, including your access level, the project creator's name, the time of last edit, and publication status.
Creating a New Project
There are two options for creating new projects in Hex:
Creating a Project from Scratch
Select the New Project button on the Projects page to create an empty project.
Uploading Existing Jupyter Notebooks
You can upload any existing .ipynb (Jupyter Notebook) file into Hex. Because this file format typically stores the outputs from the last time it was executed, they will often appear instantly in Hex without needing to re-run.
While we support upload of any .ipynb file, you may run into package-related issues while moving your work from environment to environment. See Package Management for more details on configuring your environment in Hex.
Once inside a Project, the dropdown in the upper-left offers several options:
You can rename a project from the dropdown
Any user with a Viewer profile or higher can view all of the logic and configuration of a project and duplicate projects. The new, duplicated projects do not inherit any permissions from the original.
Take your logic as an .ipynb file to any other Jupyter Notebook-compatible application.
A project can be tagged with one statusand multiple categories. These can be used to filter the main Projects page to organize large numbers of projects. A project's status and category are not visible to external App or Viewer type users.
