Why separate your employees by job title and department when the best stuff happens between people with things in common? Spaces and groups let your people form unlimited sub-communities around common topics without limitations.
In real world business scenarios, people form sub-groups, such as departments, teams, or committees, and need a workspace where they can collaborate, communicate, ask questions, give answers, and share files and ideas. Similarly, social communities tend to create separate interest specific groups where those with similar interests can connect.
Communifire give you all the social collaboration and community tools you need to create a thriving ecosystem around your business or organization.
A space, in its simplest definition, is a sub-community within your parent Communifire community. You can create unlimited spaces -- and a space contains all of the same functionality as the parent community … such as:
To help you visualize the hierarchy of spaces, relative to the community as whole, check out the diagram below.
You can configure your spaces to be private or public, and you can decide which features you’d like to have active in the space.
Maybe you’d like to have discussions, blogs, and the wiki active … and at the same time you’d like to disable events and file sharing.
Configuring a spaces’ functionality and active features is as simple as clicking a few buttons. And later, if you decide you would like to activate some of the disabled functionality, you can always use your space management screen to turn them on.
Each space has its own separate Management area that gives you full control. You (as an administrator) can manage users, roles, permissions, workflow steps, and moderate content, such as blogs, articles, and discussions. Furthermore, each space has a nifty “invite people” tool, where you can enter email addresses to send out invitations to people that you’d like to join the space. You can even connect to your Gmail and Yahoo email accounts to send invitations to your contacts. A space even allows you to keep track of the invitations you’ve sent out so you can see who joined and who you may have to re-issue an invitation to.
