Accessing a workspace

This article describes how to access a workspace

Updated over a week ago

One of Howspace’s design principles is one-click-access. There is no need to remember another set of username and password to access your workspaces. This is why workspaces can be accessed through login links or registering depending on the workspace settings. Read more about the difference between login and registering here:

Login links

In most cases the first login link to a workspace is sent through Howspace on behalf of the admin user. People who have already been invited can request to a new login link from the workspace URL (i.e. in case the email with the login link has gone missing. Then, depending on the workspace settings, users may also receive What’s new messages including the login link, i.e. if there is new content in the workspace (such as a chat comment, etc.). Messages can also be scheduled, for example new links to the workspace sent to users every Monday. There are also a few other ways to access the workspace in addition to this.

This login page can be used by anyone to access their open workspaces. If you have recently been logged in to a workspace with your browser you can access the latest workspace or your 'my workspaces'.

If your browser or device is not recognised you can login to your workspaces by entering your email address and requesting a login link. The login link will be to the most recently accessed workspace.

Try this method from here:

My workspaces

Once you are logged in to one of your workspaces you can switch to another workspace by clicking the action menu and choosing my workspaces. In this view you can see all the workspaces you have access to with the email you are currently using.

Additionally users can bookmark a workspace for themselves, eliminating the need for a separate link to log in. Here are PDF instructions that can be shared with the customers:
