1.5 Creating a Team Workspace

By default, everyone in Novell Vibe has rights to create a team workspace.

Team workspaces are the most common type of workspaces. They facilitate team objectives by enabling team members to quickly share files, share ideas, and work together more efficiently and effectively.

To create a team workspace:

  1. Click the Browse icon Vibe Interface in the Action toolbar, then expand Home Workspace in the Workspace tree.

    The Home Workspace directory is the highest-level folder in the workspace tree, and might be named something specific to your organization.

  2. Click Team Workspaces.

  3. Click Add a Team Workspace.

    The Add a Team Workspace page is displayed.

    If you do not see the Add a Team Workspace option, your site administrator has not permitted you to create a new workspace at this level. Continue to expand the workspace tree, following the path of your organizational unit, click the name of the directory where you want to create the new team workspace, then click Workspace > New Workspace. Ensure that you select Team Workspace in the Workspace section. Or, follow the steps in Creating a Team Workspace inside of an Existing Team Workspace.

  4. Specify the following information:

    Title: Provide a title for the workspace.

    Team Members: Specify the team members.

    You can specify individual users, entire groups, or add names that are on your clipboard. For more information about using the Vibe clipboard, see Section 9.6, Using the Vibe Clipboard.

    Workspace Folders: Select the folders that you want the workspace to contain.

    If you later decide that you want to add additional folders, you can add them at any time. For information on how to add folders to a workspace, see Section 5.1, Creating a New Folder.

    Announcement: (Optional) Select the check box, then type a message in the Announcement Text field.

    This message informs team members about the existence of the workspace, and can also explain the value of the workspace.

  5. Click OK to create the new workspace.

For information on how to create a team workspace inside of an existing workspace, see Creating a Team Workspace inside of an Existing Team Workspace.
