Organization Creator Quick Start Guide
Have you recently signed up for Space? Follow these steps to quickly set up your Space organization and onboard your team.
Step 1. Set up your organization
It’s important to prepare your Space environment before inviting your team members to join.
Step 2. Invite people to join you in Space
Now that you’ve added your brand assets and prepared your environment to represent your company’s structure and arrangements, it’s time to invite your team members on board. The easiest way is to send them email invitations or share a link to join. To do so, Click on the navigation bar and choose Invitation.
Step 3. Create Teams
Creating Teams in Space will help you ensure open work and transparent collaboration. Teams represent the actual structure of your organization and let employees find all they need to know about the company, its subteams, members, and everybody’s roles.
To create a team, click Administration on the navigation bar and choose Teams. Then, click New Team in the top-right corner.
Don’t forget to assign a Team Admin, who will be responsible for adding members and defining subteams.
Step 4. Create your first project
Projects are where you store and manage all resources related to a specific piece of work. Each project is outfitted with many tools to help you with various tasks: repositories, checklists, issues, boards, documents, and packages.
To create a new project, simply click on the navigation bar and choose Project.
Now you can start planning and working on your tasks.
Add other members or teams that will be working on the project with you.
Add items to your project’s checklist to plan your work.
Create an issue to keep track of your progress. You can use issues to file bugs, submit feature requests, handle design questions, and more.
Set up a new Git repository from scratch or import or mirror your existing repo from another resource such as Github and start collaborating. Track commit history, search and examine code. Create code reviews.
Upload or create project-related documents such as instructions, roadmaps, or tutorials.
Step 5. Create channels in Chats
Chats are your central hub for communication and real-time information sharing. You can use Chats to send messages to your colleagues and get personalized notifications, requests, and alerts about changes in your Space.
We recommend you start by creating a few channels everyone in the organization can join, such as #general, #announcements, #happy-hour, etc. You can also create channels for different office locations (#Amsterdam, #Boston), teams (#design, #marketing) or projects (#user-onboarding, #website-redesign-2021).
To create a channel, click on the top of the contact list in Chats and choose New channel.
Step 6. Extend and customize Space
Your Space — your rules. You can easily extend and customize Space to meet the unique needs of your company.
