Introducing Workspaces!

Say a big hello to Workspaces!

So, you want to collaborate on a spreadsheet with a little help from your friends?

Never fear, Workspaces are here!

What are Workspaces :thinking:?

Workspaces let you collaborate on spreadsheets with people that you invite. You and up to nine friends can work on your spreadsheets together to develop them faster and better.

Do the people I invite have to be dashdash users :pleading_face:?

Nope! You can invite anyone you like. If they’re not users yet, they’ll be asked to sign up. After that, they can use your Workspace.

What are owners and editors? What can they do :face_with_monocle:?

The user that created the account is the Owner. They can invite and remove Workspace members as they please :).

Anyone that’s invited to collaborate on a Workspace is an Editor. They’ll be able to do create, edit, and delete spreadsheets in the Workspace they’re invited to. But, they can’t access the settings of a Workspace (in other words, they won’t be able to invite members, view billing information, or active integrations).

Inviting members to your Workspace

To invite members to your Workspace:

  1. In your dashboard, click on Settings (located at the bottom of the left-hand side panel).
  2. Select Members.
  3. In the right-hand side panel, click Invite member.
  4. Enter one or more emails of the people you want to invite.
  5. Click Invite Members.

:sparkle: Done! Now all you need to do is wait for them to accept the invite in the email they can start working in your Workspace!

Deleting members from your Workspace

To delete a member from your Workspace:

  1. In your dashboard, click on Settings (located at the bottom of the left-hand side panel).
  2. Select Members.
  3. Find the member you want to remove and click on Editor.
  4. Select Remove from workspace and confirm the removal in the pop-up dialog.
    You can even remove members that haven’t yet accepted their invitation - just in case you invited someone by accident.

:sparkle: Done! That all it takes to remove a member.

Viewing and switching Workspaces

To see all the Workspaces you have access to, just click on the Workspace name on the left side panel. You can also switch to a different Workspace by selecting the Workspace in the drop-down menu.

What now?

Well, what are you waiting for? Don’t be cellfish - invite someone and get building :rocket:!
