This part of the manual is about how to change the different workspace settings.
The gearwheel icon opens the settings section. Here all metadata of a workspace is stored and managed. Also the members of a workspace and the workspaces security settings can be edited in this area.
When in settings section, you can see several tabs at the top of the sidebar. These tabs open the available subsections of the workspace settings:
Here general metadata like title, description and the workspace’s hero image can be changed.
How to change title and description of a workspace¶
To change a workspace’s title and description just type a new title or description in the text field or area in the sidebar.
The metadata is immediately autosaved and a info popup tells you that some attributes have been changed.
After the page is reloaded you can see the new workspace title in the breadcrumbs and the workspace header.
How to change the hero image of a workspace¶
Each workspace can have a hero image to be displayed as a visual element in the workspace’s header section background. Changing this image can also be done in the general settings section.
To change the image click the “upload” button in the sidebar and select an image in the opening file browser of your computer.
The image will be changed immediately as the metadata again is autosaved.
Reloading the page will display the image in the header section of your workspace.
