Workspaces: you know they're handy but you have questions about setting them up. Am I right? Wea''re brewing some updates that will make them more intuitive and easier to use. In the meantime...
Leta''s go over some of the most common questions about workspaces:
Do I have workspaces on my free account?
Nope. Free accounts don't have workspaces. They're an advanced feature available to paid accounts only.
Are workspaces supposed to be for organizing my posts &mdash like folders?
Workspaces are an organization tool, yes, but theya''re more of a sharing tool. Theya''re kind of like shared folders on your computer: you control who has access to the folder and what posts they get to see.
Are the people in my workspaces separate from the other users on my account?
Not automatically &mdash you have to set it up that way. If you dona''t want somebody to see all the other users on your account when they go to share something, edit their account permissions in the Users tab. De-select them from the root account, and select only the workspaces you want them to be in.
Can everyone in my workspace see all the posts that are in there?
No, you still need to share individual posts or sets so people know what to look at. This will help keep your feedback clear and directed, and keep your team from getting spammed by a bunch of notifications they don't need.
I keep winding up in the wrong workspace, or all my posts are in a different workspace. What do I do?
Think about your audience first: Before you start organizing your posts, think about who you're going to show them to, and why. This will get you into the right workspace. Add your users and posts to the workspace next, then start arranging the posts into sets and sharing them.
Can I find more info about workspaces somewhere?
Yup! Check out the workspace FAQ for more info.
