Quire organization

With a Quire account, you can create or access one or more organizations to collaborate and work on projects with different team members.

Each organization has its own set of projects and projects consist of tasks and subtasks.

For example, you are the CEO of your company, who is in charge of many departments: Marketing, Accounting, Human Resources, IT, and so on. Each department has its own projects.

For the marketing team, they are running different campaigns. You can create an organization for the marketing team and create projects under that marketing organization such as Social Media campaigns, Brand Awareness campaigns, Advertising, etc.


An organization is a collection of multiple projects. View an organization as a company or a department that works on projects together.
