Manage workspaces

Workspace is a collection of notebooks with a variety of shared resources, such as data sources, SSH keys, or environment variables. The Home page of Datalore is where you manage your workspaces.

Workspaces you own

This category includes the default Private Workspace and the workspaces you create. Private Workspace is enough to learn the basics of Datalore and work on your first and simple projects. Unlike other workspaces, you cannot share Private Workspace.

Workspaces shared with you

This category includes other users' own workspaces that are shared with you. Your managing options can be restricted by the access type granted to you.
