A workspace is your main Butter hub. Everything you do in Butter happens in a workspace. It’s where you’ll find your rooms, library, recaps, and team members. You can join as many workspaces as you like!

Here’s a 2-minute tour of everything that’s in a workspace!

What is a Butter workspace?

Everything you do in Butter is tied to a workspace. In a workspace, you’ll find your rooms, a shared library of agendas and tools, session recaps, and your team members.

Here’s what you can do in a workspace:

  • See what’s next: Your workspace has a Home tab with an overview of upcoming sessions, recent rooms, recaps, and more.
  • Plan sessions together: Collaborate on room setup with other members of your workspace.
  • Share templates: Create a team library of agenda templates and tools to save on setup time.
  • Manage your team: Invite workspace members and assign workspace- and room-level roles
  • Manage your billing: Manage workspace permissions, plans, and billing from one account.

Navigating your workspace

You’ll find your workspace navigation on the lefthand side of your workspace.

At the top, you’ll find your workspace switcher, where you can easily switch between workspaces you’re a member of.

Then, you’ll find five menu items: Home, Rooms, Templates, Recaps, and Settings.


Here’s a quick breakdown of each section of your workspace.


1. Home

Your workspace Home gives you an at-a-glance view of upcoming sessions, recently used rooms, and recent recaps.

These are only the sessions, rooms, and recaps that you participated in, so this view is personalized for each workspace member.

Creating a workspace

There are two ways to create a workspace in Butter.

  1. When you first sign up: If you weren’t invited to a team workspace, you’ll be prompted to create your own workspace when you first sign up to Butter.
  2. From your Butter dashboard: You can create a new workspace by selecting the workspace dropdown from the dashboard navigation and then selecting “Add new workspace.” From there, just follow the prompts!

Joining a workspace

To join an existing workspace, you’ll need to be invited by an existing member. Any workspace member can invite you to their workspace.

Managing workspace members and roles

Workspaces are made for teams to plan and run incredibly engaging sessions together! To access your workspace members, navigate to Settings > Workspace.

In a Butter team workspace, there are four different member roles:

  • Owner: The creator of the workspace and the only person who can delete the workspace.
  • Admin: Can manage workspace settings, members, and the library.
  • Pro: These paid members have full access to the workspace’s rooms and library, but can’t manage workspace settings (including member roles).
  • Basic: These free members have limited access to rooms and the library.

Your workspace can have up to 50 Basic (free) members and unlimited Pro (paid) members.
