    Thanks Doug - it's on the list.  :)  Can you describe your specific use case(s)?

    maybe the "add myself / auto join" feature I requested would help: https://help.workspace.ibm.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/245300327-add-myself-to-space-auto-join

    my use case: you want to build a community but can't collect eMail adresses. In this case you would share the space URL for those who want to join.

    Example: IBM has evangelists for Bluemix all over the place. they do workshops with larger groups of peple but don't necessarily control the list of participants as some times the hosts handle all the invitations.

    We are actively exploring "invite users via URL to a space" (but right now it's still to a private space).

    My use case was for discoverable communities of interest. Like for support of a product (like WW), using a technology, etc.

    Thanks Doug!  That's exactly what we've heard before - so you aren't alone.  :)

    Exellent! Now... how do I find an existing public space and join it?

    Currently public spaces are limited to Essentials and Plus users.  Here's more information on how to discover public spaces.  https://help.workspace.ibm.com/hc/articles/360003143553

     So IBM users are not Essentials or Plus users? I have no dropdown (on Windows app).

    No, not yet, but we are working on that too.
