A workspace is a secure online area for members to share files, assign tasks, manage projects, start discussions, and organise schedules.
Create separate workspaces for different groups of people, projects or events. Each workspace can be customised and branded for the group of people or project it contains.
You can involve colleagues, customers or suppliers, in fact anyone you need to communicate and share information with regularly.
Types of workspace
You have the option of creating public or private workspaces:
- Private workspaces are only visible to the users that are invited to join them.
- Public workspaces can be browsed in the Public Workspaces Directory and joined on demand.
Regardless of type, a workspace's contents and activity only become visible to users after they become a member of that particular workspace.
Creating a workspace
To create a workspace click the plus icon next to 'MY WORKSPACES' on the side navigation bar or use the 'Actions' button.
Give your workspace a name and then click 'Next'.
Select the type of workspace you want to create. If you are creating a public workspace, you will be asked to select the default role that will be applied to users who join your workspace.
Make your selection from the drop down menu and click 'Next'.
Finally select the features that you want to add to your workspace by checking the relevant boxes. We strongly recommend that you only add the features that you need, this will keep the workspace as simple for its members to navigate as possible.
Note: You can change these settings at any time by clicking on the workspace 'Options' link.
