Description of problem (please provide a set of steps we can use to replicate the issue, and make as many as you need.):

Step 1: I have started a traditional project and don’t seem to have an option to invite specific people to the project.

Step 2:

Step 3:

It only seems available to an invite only traditional project ? Is that how it’s supposed to be as I’d like to be able to invite people to my open tradional project ?

It depends on what type of project you want. I think if you choose “invite only” you limit people who join to those people you invite in. I tried this for a class-focused project and found it wasn’t very flexible, so I switched to an open project that anyone could join. You can still message or @ people who you think would be interested and invite the to check out the project link and join if it looks interesting.

Welcome to the forum!

I don’t think that this is a Bug, so I’ve moved to General.

You could invite them via direct message or tagging them in comments. Or writing a journal post about your project and tagging them in it.
