A Labstep workspace is a secure digital space where you can share content with other members and get research done. If you don't feel like sharing, workspaces can be used for personal projects allowing you to neatly pull together experiments, protocols, resources and order requests. When you're ready to share, workspaces makes collaborating colleagues easy and are a great way to manage a group or organisation.

How workspaces on Labstep work

As soon as you create a Labstep account, a workspace will be created for you. By default this workspace will be your 'home' workspace. You can create any number of new workspaces and invite colleagues to them. You can also change which workspace is your home workspace.

On Labstep all experiments, protocols or inventory items you create are saved to the workspace you are currently working in. Which workspace you are currently in is displayed on the left hand menu (see image below).
Please note, If you are working in a workspace owner by another user that user will own and therefore have control over the content you are creating in that workspace.
