NBnano Cloud Platform Continued

If you did not skip adding your NBnano to the Cloud Platform you will be asked to add this NBnano to a project. This project will give you a custom URL to access and manage all of your NBnanos

You may select an existing project from the drop down list. If you have not made a project yet with your NBnano account then a new one can be created.

If you choose to create a new project, you will be automatically added to this project and can add user’s to your project. Your current NBnano will also be added to this project. This way you can separate your NBnanos into multiple projects should you desire. Usually you would create 1 project and add all your NBnanos to this single project, so you can see all of them in the same place.
