What is the Startup project?

If you're working on a few projects at a time, but one of these is the one that takes most of your time, you may choose one of your projects to be the startup project. This means that each time you enter into your account, the current selected project from the projects list will be the active one.

You can set the Startup project in the My details page from the Settings menu.

What is the Startup page?

The Startup page is the page first loaded when you log into your account. It can be one of the following:

  • the Dashboard for all projects
  • all your tasks
  • all your milestones
  • the Dashboard for the startup project
  • the Tasks for the startup project
  • the Milestones for the startup project

You can set the Startup page in the My details page from the Settings menu.

Where can I change my email notification settings?

In the Subscriptions page from the Settings menu you may uncheck the Receive email notifications check-box to stop receiving email notifications for tasks, milestones, invitations or any other case.

Can I export my projects data?

In the Account page from the Settings menu you are given the option to pack all the data from your projects as an XML file.

Please note that the export contains only data from your account, including all your projects, but does not include external files such as account photo or files from your projects.

For performance reasons, the export can be performed only once in a day. An email with download information will be sent to you as soon as the export is ready.

Can I cancel my account?

Even if we would not want you to do it, there is the option of cancelling your account. This action is irreversible, so after this operation, your Teamness account will be immediately closed and all your data will be permanently deleted.

If I sign in using Google, will you be able to obtain my password?

The short answer to this question is: definitely not! It is technically impossible.

The authentication using Google means two things:

  • the authentication process is fully delegated to Google
  • your Google authentication is connected with a Teamness account (if exists, otherwise a new one can be created).

Or, to put it in different words, the following steps are performed:

  • you are accessing the Teamness login page and click on the "Login using Google" link
  • you are redirected to the Google login server along with a secret key
  • you login on the Google server and authorize Teamness to access your details
  • you are redirected to the Teamness website along with another secret key generated by Google from the one we’ve just sent
  • the information received is validated by the Teamness server to make sure that you indeed logged in successfully on the Google server and then your email address and full name are retrieved to connect you to your Teamness account

If I sign in using Yahoo, will you be able to obtain my password?

The short answer to this question is: definitely not! It is technically impossible.

The authentication using Yahoo means two things:

  • the authentication process is fully delegated to Yahoo
  • your Yahoo authentication is connected with a Teamness account (if exists, otherwise a new one can be created).

Or, to put it in different words, the following steps are performed:

  • you are accessing the Teamness login page and click on the "Login using Yahoo" link
  • you are redirected to the Yahoo login server along with a secret key
  • you login on the Yahoo server and authorize Teamness to access your details
  • you are redirected to the Teamness website along with another secret key generated by Yahoo from the one we’ve just sent
  • the information received is validated by the Teamness server to make sure that you indeed logged in successfully on the Yahoo server and then your email address and full name are retrieved to connect you to your Teamness account

The entire authentication procedure is performed on the Yahoo servers and there are no passwords exchanged during this time. Only at the end of the process Yahoo is redirecting you on the Teamness site confirming that it was able to authenticate you. As you can see, obtaining someone’s password is impossible because the password is never sent out of the Yahoo servers.
