Streamlining Project Management with the Projects Plug-In:

Imagine a world where managing multiple projects becomes effortless, where different perspectives and views of your projects can be easily accessed within a single interface. That’s precisely what the Projects Plug-In for Obsidian offers.

Graphical User Interface (GUI) Lovers Rejoice:

If you prefer working with a visual interface instead of traditional data views, then this plug-in is perfect for you. The Projects Plug-In provides a user-friendly GUI that allows you to effortlessly manage and organize your projects.

Setting Up Your Projects:

To get started, you’ll need to create a new folder named “projects” in your Obsidian vault. All your projects will live within this folder. By accessing the command palette, you can quickly create new projects, assign default projects, and set data sources. This flexibility allows you to tailor your project management experience to your specific needs.

Defining Project Details:

Within each project, you can set various parameters, including the project name, topic, tags, and important dates such as the filming or posting dates. The plug-in even offers the option to define custom templates for standard project formats, saving you time and effort.

Organizing Projects:

The Projects Plug-In offers multiple views to help you navigate and manage your projects effectively. The board view allows you to create a Kanban-style pipeline, enabling you to track the progress of each project through different stages, such as scripting, filming, editing, and posting. You can also create a calendar view, which provides a visual representation of your projects’ timelines. Lastly, the gallery view allows you to see all your projects at a glance, making it easier to prioritize and plan your workflow.

Tailoring Views to Your Needs:

Each view can be customized to fit your preferences. You can sort projects based on their names, dates, or tags. Additionally, you can assign colors to specific topics or tags, making it easier to identify and prioritize projects at a glance.

Addressing Limitations:

While the Projects Plug-In for Obsidian offers incredible project management capabilities, it’s important to note a few limitations. Dragging and dropping projects vertically for manual rearrangement is not currently supported. Additionally, removing all cards from a column causes the column to disappear. However, you can create a placeholder card to maintain consistency within your workflow.


In this blog post, we’ve explored the Projects Plug-In for Obsidian and its powerful features. This plug-in provides project managers with a streamlined approach to managing multiple projects within a single interface. With its user-friendly GUI, customizable views, and the ability to define project parameters, the Projects Plug-In significantly enhances project management capabilities for Obsidian users. While it may have a few limitations, its benefits far outweigh any drawbacks.
