Spaces - Features
- Administrators can set access rights (public or private,) add, or invite members and assign them to specific groups (different permission levels.)
- Spaces can be configured and branded to meet the needs of the group. Administrators can customize their space by applying a specific layout, look, and feel including custom headers and footers. Once the design and permissions are set, spaces can also be cloned and reused as pre-configured templates to create consistency across the community.
- Spaces can have virtually any number of applications (e.g. 3 calendars, 2 wikis, etc.) In addition, Administrators can dynamically display content from other areas of the site in their space using channels.
- Members can search for any type of content in a space—full text and permissioned.
