Depending on the size of your organization, you may want to organize users in groups by teams or any other classification. To Create a new group, select Groups in the left sidebar, then click on + New group. In the pop-up window enter a name for the new group and click Create.

The new group now shows up in the overview page.

Creating a Space

Spaces can be created by clicking + New Space if the Create Space permission has been granted. If the permission has not been granted, the button is not present. When creating a space, the creator is automatically in the Manager role for this space. This role can be delegated to one or more users. Creators can remove themselves from this role if desired. See the Sharing Roles and Permissions documentation for details.
