What is Space?

Space is an all-in-one team collaboration platform that tightly integrates communication, process management, and software development tools in a single web or desktop interface. It lets you host repositories, analyze and review code, stay informed, and interact with your fellow colleagues from a single place. You can quickly find out who's working on what and who's in charge of what — and instantly contact the right person via a built-in messenger (Chats).

How is it organized?

Space Teams is a directory that represents your organization structure which can be flat or multilevel (with parent and child teams). You can be a member of one or several teams. Your information, including contacts, schedules, association with teams and the position (title) in each team, is shown in a personal profile.

Space Projects represent workspaces for teams. A project is created to store and manage all the team's work-related resources, such as documentation, checklists, issues, and hosted repositories, to which project members can contribute. Projects are independently managed entities not implicitly associated with teams. Any member of the organization can create a project and choose who will have access to it.
