Journey #1: Kinaki First Steps

If you are new to Kinaki, and want to set up your organization, start some projects, programs, invite your team members to join, etc. – it can be a lot of information to take in and learn at once!

Fear not – the Kinaki team is here to help!


Registration & Subscriptions

First off, you’ll need to register. You can register yourself and your organization right away to create a free account and get yourself going.

If you’re ok with a free account to start – great! If you’re unsure what you or your organization might need, or want to check out the different options, check out Subscription Types, Cost Calculator, and User Types and Rights.


Exploring Kinaki

Follow along with the Navigation Tour after you’ve register, or the next time you login.

As well, visiting the Navigating in Kinaki page to give you a great high-level overview of where things are located.

Exploring the Demo Project will allow you to see Kinaki in action and give you ideas for your own experience.


Settings

Make sure you set yourself up with your password and security questions before you get into anything deeper by visiting your Account settings page.

As an Organization Admin, you first likely want to spend some time on your Organization Settings page, where you can do high-level things to get you started – like adding projects, programs, users, and managing your payment and subscriptions – among other things.

After exploring and doing some set-up, you can continue by working through your Program Settings and Project Settings pages for more specific and related items.

Reviewing the guidance for managing users for the organization within your organization and what type of privileges you want them to have access to, will really shape the functionality of your organization’s Kinaki experience.


Dashboards

Once you’ve got your organization set-up, with a project and/or program set-up – check out Kinaki’s various dashboards:

The Organization Dashboard, Program Dashboard, and Project Dashboard show the overall picture will look like for the different users on your team and define the different scopes of your Kinaki operations.

Get familiar with how you can add comments on different pages and add different languages.

You can always jump back to the Homepage to get centered again if you’ve lost your way – and see what’s new in Kinaki, and the overview details of your organizations.


Next Steps

Once you’ve follow through all the steps in this journey – you’re ready!

Our next task will be to start designing your project, including creating the Project Logic, setting Indicators, and more.

Let’s get you started with designing your first project or walking through another Learning Journey.
