Who can use this feature?
Space owners can perform these actions. It's available in the Essentials edition.
In Watson Workspace, sometimes you need to collaborate with other people who are outside your team or organization and other times its just as important that people outside your organization are restricted from your space. As a space owner, you can decide if guests are allowed or not allowed in your space.
Note: A guest is anyone that is not in your paid Essentials team. 10% of authorized users (or up to 10 users, whichever is higher) in a Watson Workspace Essentials team can be guests at no additional charge. Additional guests can be purchased as part of your subscription.
The first time you'll be presented with the option to allow guests is when you are creating a space.
- Select the plus icon to create a space.
- Enter the space name.
- By default, guests are allowed in your space. You can leave guests toggled on, or toggle it off to not allow guests in your space.
- Add people to your space
You can also go back in to space settings and modify your choice.
- Click the name of your space to access Space Settings.
- Go to Properties.
- Toggle Allow guests on or off to allow or disallow guests
- Choose Save Changes.
Tip: Be careful changing from allowing guests to not allowing guests. If you allow guests and then change the property so guests are not allowed, members who are guests and any apps they have added will be removed automatically.
