Creating new workspaces via Slack
If you are in a discussion within the channel and you need to create a workspace instantly:
- Type the below slash command in the channel
/creately new <workspace name>
(replace <workspace name> with a preferred name for the workspace.)
- If you have permission to create new workspaces as per your plan, Creately will respond to the channel with a link to a new workspace
- Your colleagues can then click on the link to open Creately and edit the workspace in real-time
Workspaces created via Slack are by default set to Anyone with the link settings. This allows everyone in the channel to access the workspace via the secure link.
