Setting up general space settings

You can change a space's name and description if the space focus changes. You can also change its display name, which is the name used in URLs that link to the space.

Fastpath:
  • Admin Console > Permissions > Spaces, then the gear icon > Edit general information
  • Advanced Admin Console > Spaces > Settings > Space Settings

The display name is the text displayed at the end of the space's URL in the browser's address bar. For some people, using the space URL is a quick way to get to the space. Note that you can't change the display name for the root space.

You can change the space's locale setting to set user UI characteristics, such as language and date format. Note that this locale setting applies to one of several locale behaviors. For more information on how the locale is chosen for displaying to the user, see Setting up locale and time zone.

You can also specify the content types the space and its sub-spaces supports. For more information, see Setting up allowed content types for spaces.
