Managing spaces

A space is a place for content, including documents, discussions, and blogs. A space can also contain projects, polls, tags, and announcements. You can create and configure spaces, setting up defaults for content and managing discussions and documents.

Spaces are typically arranged in a hierarchy that reflects how the community's users are organized. For example, a human resources department might have its own space, with sub-spaces for content related to benefits and recruiting. Spaces provide the context for organizing content, sharing information, collaborating, and generally getting things done.
