Manage workspace access

If you’re part of an Enterprise Grid org, you can control how members find and join your workspace.

Find the right level of access:

  • Open
    Anyone in your organization can view and join the workspace. 
  • By Request
    Any org member can request to join the workspace. 
  • Invite Only
    Any org member can be invited to join (by a Workspace Owner/Admin) or added to the workspace (by an Org Owner/Admin).
  • Hidden
    Members cannot view the workspace and must be invited to join (by a Workspace Owner/Admin) or added (by an Org Owner/Admin).

Note: Be mindful of including sensitive information or words in a hidden workspace’s URL. If for some reason a non-member has the workspace’s URL, it will simply redirect to the Org’s sign in page.

Tip: Members can read Discover and join workspaces on your organization for more.
