Getting started

Welcome aboard! This guide will get you started on using Helix TeamHub.

When you first log in, you land on the My Dashboard view. From there you can quickly access:

  • My Projects: Displays an alphabetical list of projects you are involved in. When you visit a project more than five times, its project tile is moved in front of the alphabetical list and marked with a Star to indicate that it is one of your favorite projects. Favorite projects are displayed in visit count order, from highest to lowest. To remove a project from the favorites list and display it in the alphabetical list, click the Star in the top right of the project tile to reset its visit count to zero.

  • Most Visited Repositories: Displays your 24 most visited repositories in visit count order, from highest to lowest. To remove a repository from the list, click the X in the top right of the repository tile to reset its visit count to zero.

  • My Issues: Displays open issues assigned to you.

  • My Code Reviews: Displays code reviews you are associated with.

Company seat and storage usage

The number of seats, projects, repositories, and your storage usage are displayed on your My Dashboard page. Storage usage is calculated once a day from the active repositories and attachments. Company administrators can run the storage calculation on-demand for their company if required, see Calculate storage on-demand.

Project storage usage

Storage usage is displayed for each project on the My Dashboard, All projects, project Activity, and project Settings pages.

Project scope

The project scope is activated whenever you access or create a new project. In TeamHub, each project is an isolated entity with its own team, repositories, milestones and so on. Projects are created at the company scope level. A company can have multiple projects. The project's team, for example, is formed by granting access to individual company users, collaborators, groups or bots, and giving them appropriate project roles.

Repository storage usage

Note

Calculate storage on-demand

Company administrators can run the storage calculation on-demand for their company if required. This gives you the ability to check your current storage usage when you are deleting repositories and attachments without waiting for the next scheduled calculation.

To calculate how much storage your company is using:

  1. Navigate to your My Dashboard page.

  2. Click the arrow to the right of the total storage.

  3. Image of the Calculate storage now button
