Spaces are virtual work spaces that you can create for the different groups within your larger collaboration community. They allow you to organize teams, groups of people, and content. By creating spaces for specific groups, you can organize information better, cut down on clutter, improve communication, and encourage participation.
Regulate space membership and content security with different Space Types. Check out the links below to learn about the visibility, discoverability, and membership of each type.
Public SpaceAnyone can find, view, and join a public space. This type of space is perfect for company-wide groups or information.
Private SpaceA private space is unlisted and unsearchable, and users must be invited to join the space. This type of space is suitable to keep certain content, conversations, or projects private.
Sub SpaceIs your space getting too big? Create a sub space within the space to specialize people or content.
Create a space and customize its description, appearance, and features.
