Customising your workspace

As a Workspaces user with the Standard User or Workspace Administrator role, you can collaborate with your workspace colleagues to customise certain aspects of your workspace in order to tailor it your team's needs. This customisation can include adding project logos, branding and relevant external links. A good way to do this is to create a customised homepage for your workspace that all users will see. This only requires some basic HTML skills.

Creating a custom homepage for a workspace

To set a custom homepage for a workspace, create a file called workspace.html in the Files folder. In this file, write HTML code as you would for a regular web page. HTML file being editing in the file editor

The following restrictions apply to the HTML code:

  • You cannot include any scripting language such as JavaScript or VBScript. This will be automatically removed from the HTML when the custom homepage is displayed in the workspace.
  • You cannot include any iframes, including embedded YouTube videos.
  • You cannot include content from other files, such as CSS stylesheets. Any styling must be included within the HTML file, i.e. using the style tag.

We also recommend that in order for your homepage to display properly on all browsers, you should only include content which is stored within your workspace (don't try and add pictures which aren't stored in your files). Once you have finished writing your HTML code, save the file. If you refresh your browser window, you'll see a new tab appear with a Home icon. Inside this tab you'll see your HTML code rendered as a web page. close up screenshot of the home tab icon and an HTML page being rendered in the main page
