Corporate Spaces appear at the top of the Spaces section as they are promoted by leadership and should have relevancy across the organisation. Corporate Spaces are always public and visible to everyone.
- Only system Admins have permissions to create Corporate Spaces.
- The Corporate label can be changed to another word (under 11 characters) e.g. 'Promoted', 'Business'. Let your Workvivo point of contact know if you would like to change the label.
Before creating a Corporate space, you should know:
- who the Space Owner(s) and Admin(s) are - to ensure the space is sustainable, you need a few people who will lead content generation and maintain the direction of the space
- the purpose of the space - this sets the vision and direction of the space which should be explained clearly in the Space Description
- what types of content the Owners plan to publish - this should be posts, Pages, events, and articles around a key theme or pillar of conversation to ensure the longevity of the space
- We recommend that all Space Owners create a Content Calendar for the first 1-2 months and continue planning content after that
- If a space is no longer required or there is little to no activity, the space should be archived after a review every 3-6 months
Roles / Permissions: System Admins
