Registering your project in Launchpad takes just a few minutes and allows you to use Launchpad to do all or any of the following:

{i} Quick tip: If you want to register a translation or Ubuntu loco team in Launchpad, please create a new team, not a project.

Step 1: Log in to Launchpad and visit

Step 2: Click Register a project in the left-hand Actions menu.

Step 3: Complete the Name, Display Name and Title fields.

Launchpad uses these three different names for your project in different contexts:

Step 4: Your project summary and description are used on your project's homepage. A portion of the summary is also shown in search results.

In this screen-shot of the Blueprint Tracker's project page, the summary is highlighted with a red line and the description with a blue line.

Step 5: If your project is part of a wider project group, you can tell Launchpad by entering the project group's name in the Part of text-box. If you're not sure of the project group's exact Launchpad name, click Choose... to search for it.

For example: Blueprint is part of the launchpad-project group.

If you make this project part of a project group, the group preferences and decisions around bug tracking, translation and security policy will also apply to this project.

{i} Note: You can request a new project group by emailing Describe your project, its constituent parts and why a project group is the best way to organise them. Launchpad team administrators will reply to let you know if your request has been successful.

Step 6: The following fields allow you to tell Launchpad users more about your project and are not used by Launchpad itself.

{i} Quick tip: Once you've registered your project, you can use Launchpad to host your project's downloadable files. Find out more about file downloads.

Step 7: When you're ready, click the Add button to create your project in Launchpad. Launchpad will now take you straight to your new project page.
