You can create a new project by clicking the NEW PROJECT button on the right side of the top bar. A wizard will guide you through the creation of the project.

The first step will ask you for a mandatory name and optional description for your project. If there are multiple stores available for your account, you will also be asked to choose one for the storage of your environment data during this step. Click NEXT to proceed.

The second step will allow you to define the environments for the project. You can add an environment by entering a mandatory name and base path for the environment. A suggestion comprised of the project name and environment name will be made for the base path, but you can change this manually or by pressing the ellipsis button to browse for a folder. Click the ADD button to add the environment to the list of defined environments for the project. You will then see the list of currently defined environments. You can add more environments by clicking the ADD ENVIRONMENT button and following the same steps as before. To remove an environment click the more options button next to the environment name and click Delete.

Environments need to be defined in the correct order and cannot be changed after the project is created.
