What is a Workspace Overview?


Below is an example of a Workspace Overview page. Each workspace has its own unique Overview page that shows a summary of the most recent activity for that workspace.

The overview page contains several sections and provides you with a wealth of information. This article will quickly detail each of these and what they can help you do.

Tabs: From your Overview page you can easily access all areas of Huddle thanks to the tabs that run down the left hand side of the screen within the navigation panel. This way you can easily access your "Files", "Tasks", "People" or "Settings" pages with one click.

Custom Overview: If you have opted to have a customised workspace overview as pictured below, underneath your tabs you will see an image or logo of your choice. You may also have chosen a row of buttons that can link you to areas inside or outside of Huddle. You can click on these to take you directly to your most frequently visited folders. areas, internet or intranet pages. If you would like more detail about customisation, click here

Files Awaiting Approval in this Workspace: If you have any files that need approval within the workspace they will show up here (if you don't have any this section will not be present). You can click on the file title to go to the file details page. You will also see a list of the names of the people who have approved the document and those who haven't. You can minimize or maximize this list with the toggle on the top right hand side of the section.

My Calendar: Underneath the "Files Awaiting Approval" section is your Huddle calendar. You can choose a two week or monthly view to see the key milestones and tasks upcoming in your work over the next few weeks. The calendar can also be toggled on and off with the button on the top right hand side of the section. For more detailed information about "My Calendar", click here 

Activity: The last section on the Workspace Overview page is your activity feed. This is an area that informs you of all the recent actions performed in your workspace. The actions could be from any workspace member and could take the form of a task, a file upload or a comment for example. You can choose to see up the the most recent 40 actions performed in the workspace using the drop-down menu on the right hand side. You can click on the title of the document or task to be directed to its detail page. The activity feed also lists the names of the people who accomplished the action as well as their time and date of completion.
