Help: Help on: Workspace
UP | Help Index
A workspace is a collaborative space that allows any member of the group to change the content on any page. The latest version of the workspace is always displayed, no matter how many times it has been edited.
A revision history is kept, so content is never lost, it's just moved to the revisions list.
Use workspaces to post content that you want other people's comments/edits/enhancements on.
Workspaces can be used for:
- Meeting Agendas
- Meeting Notes
- To Do lists
- Communications drafting
- anything else you can think of!
At the bottom of each workspace, you can find the following statistics.
|Page name:||This is the name of the workspace. To create a link to the page, simply surround the name in back-ticks and put an underscore after it (like this: `page name`_ )|
|Last editor:||This is the person who last made a change to the workspace. If you want to see what the change was, simply click on the revisions link in the brown bar at the top of the page.|
|Date:||When the last revision was saved.|
|Tags:||Tags that you and others have used on this item.|
|Feedback score:||The sum of the feedback (positive feedback and negative feedback) assigned to this page, as well as how many points have come from you.|
A workspaces's feedback score is generally seen in two places: in a list of page titles, it is shown in parentheses after the title of the page, and it is shown in the statistics section of each page, below the content.
How can you change the feedback score of a workspace?
At the bottom of the page, where the page statistics info is listed, click the "+/-" link next to the feedback score.
If you feel the workspace is one of importance to the rest of the group, you can assign it positive feedback, and the workspace will appear higher in the "highest rated pages" list for your group.
Conversely, if you feel the page is off-topic or inappropriate for your group, you can assign negative feedback and that will push the page down on the list.
For more information about feedback, please see the feedback help page.
