Create a Workspace From the Dashboard

Create a Workspace From the Dashboard

Step 1: Create a Workspace to upload and share files with your team

From the dashboard, create a workspace by clicking the ‘+’ menu in the top right corner of the Workspaces panel. Select ‘Workspace’. When the ‘Create a Workspace’ window pops up, enter a name and hit ‘Save’.

OR: Create a Workspace from the left sidebar

The left sidebar is viewable from anywhere in CoLab. Click the ‘Workspace’ icon on the left sidebar, type in your desired Workspace name in the ‘Add Workspace…’ field and click the arrow to submit.

Step 2: Create a Folder to organize Workspaces

From the dashboard, create a folder by clicking the ‘+’ menu in the top right corner of the Workspaces panel. Select ‘Folder’. When the ‘Create Folder’ window pops up, enter a name and hit ‘Save’.

To move a Workspace into a Folder, right click on the menu to the right of the Workspace name and select ‘Move To’. Select the folder you want to move the Workspace into, then hit ‘Move here’. You can also move Folders inside each other by following the same process as you would to move Workspaces.


NOTE: Right now, folders are used strictly for Workspace organization, they do not determine USER permissions. Permissions are determined at the Workspace level.
