The Make Available Online dialog opens. The Project Name field automatically contains the project name. In the Description field, it is recommended that you enter text that describes the project content. It is also recommended that the Enable Formal Version Control option is checked. This enables version control and allows several users to work on the project. Click Advanced; the Folder field displays where the project will be located in Altium 365. Click OK.
