Viewing Spaces

Once you login, the list of spaces you have permission to access is displayed on your Dashboard under the spaces section. If you do not login, you will be treated as an 'anonymous user' and only those spaces to which an anonymous user has 'View' permission will be displayed on the Dashboard. Permission to a space is granted by the Space Administrator.

The list of spaces is displayed under tabs :

  • My Spaces : Spaces you marked as favourites
  • New : New spaces added to the site in the last seven days.
  • All : All the spaces on the site.

  • Additionally, a list of personal spaces is available in the People Directory

Go to the Dashboard from any page on your site simply by clicking the logo beside the page title or via the breadcrumb list located at the top of every page.
