Get excited! In just a couple weeks workspaces will be launched ⏰

To ensure this transition goes as smoothly as possible for all of our users, we want to ensure you know what to expect and how to prepare. Below you'll find a video of the setup process as well as a checklist for simple things you can do ahead of time to ensure your setup takes less than a minute.

Join-Info Changes

After you've created your workspace and transferred your rooms, the join info for your rooms will be different - so remember to update your scheduled meetings with the updated details:

Previous: https://rooms.remotehq.com/room

New: https://rooms.remotehq.com/workspace/room

👀Watch Step by Step

First thing's first, check out the video below to watch a video on the full setup process.

Getting set up is super easy

👋Let’s get personal!

Now is your opportunity to nail down your team and customize your workspace with a unique name and icon image!

  • Pick a name and logo for your workspace: Sync with your team on what you would like that to be. Usually this is just your company’s name and logo. But if it’s just you, then the possibilities for your workspace name and icon are endless - whether simply your name or something fun!
  • Make a list of your team's email addresses: This will make the invite's step way faster.
  • Pick your team's workspace admin: After we roll out our changes this person should  be the first to log into RemoteHQ to spearhead creating your workspace and  inviting the team to your new home base! Remember, the admin will have the supreme power of the rooms, team membership, and paying the bills - so pick wisely!

➡️Transfer of rooms

During setup, the last step will be transferring your current rooms into your new workspace(s). After a room is transferred, all the sessions from that room will become visible to each team member in the workspace. This means that anyone who is a member of the workspace will be able to see full session history.

If you’re uncomfortable opening up all your sessions and artifacts to your team, you can either choose to delete those rooms (make sure to download important artifacts from those rooms now so your diligent work is not lost!) or create your own private workspace to transfer those rooms to.

🗓️Timeline

The RemoteHQ team will be introducing workspaces on a Friday night so teams will have the weekend to change over and prepare for the week to come. We don’t want to heighten the Sunday scaries any more than they already exist!

So over the weekend, the selected admin should onboard the team:, name the workspace, and invite team members. It is as simple as that! To ensure no steps are missed throughout this process, you can follow this checklist:

As you prepare please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions!

Keep building,

Anthony & the RemoteHQ team
