How to create a new Space

After you login to Workast with your Slack credentials, you can create a space in two different ways:

  • Using the shortcut key in the left corner of your screen
  • Using the space creation menu

Using the shortcut key

  • Mouseover the + button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen in  the Workast web app.  The + will turn into two icons - click on the top "Create a space" icon.
  • A list of current spaces in your Workast team will appear.  Click on "Create Space in the top left corner of the screen.
  • Select the privacy by answering "Who can join this space?" - either anyone on the team (a public space) or by invitation only (a private space.)
  • Complete the name of the space
  • Add a description and template (optional)
  • Send invites to people: This will create a list in the Dashboard only and the list is not connected to a Slack channel.
  • Select an existing Slack channel: This will create a list in a Slack channel and all participants of the Slack channel will have access to the list.  
  • Once you complete the above fields, click "Create" to create your space.
