Creating a New Social Workspace

Updated: October 16, 2020

This add-on is deprecated since Nuxeo Platform 6.0. A SQL script is available to migrate your Social Collaboration data to non-deprecated document types. The script and its readme are available from GitHub.

Social workspaces can only be created in the Social domain added automatically by the system when you install the Social Collaboration module to your Nuxeo application.

You can create a social workspace from:

  • the Collaboration tab, from any social workspace's dashboard,
  • the document management view of the social domain.

To create a new social workspace from the Collaboration tab:

  1. Click on the Actions button, in the top right corner of the view.
  2. Click on Create a Social Workspace. The social workspace creation form is displayed.
  3. Fill in the form (see below for social workspace parameters) and click on the Create button.
    The workspace's Wall tab is displayed. You can then configure the workspace's dashboards.

To create a social workspace from the document management view of the application:

  1. In the Social domain, click on the New button.
  2. On the Available document types window, click on Social Workspace.
  3. Fill in the social workspace creation form.
  4. Click on Create button. The workspace's Wall tab is displayed. You can now configure the workspace's dashboards.
