What is a project?

“>In Meistersystems, teamwork and communication happen in channels. A channel is a single place for a team to share messages, tools, and files. Read on to learn all about how to create, join, and use channels to collaborate with your teammates. All about channels Channels can be organized by team, project, or whatever else is relevant to you. Team members can join and leave channels as needed. Threads allow for focused and organized side conversations within channels. Create channels Channels can be organized around anything, and a workspace can have as many as needed — there’s no limit! They’re available for all plans: Free, Standard, Plus, and Enterprise Grid.  Public channels They’re open for all members to join, and anything posted is searchable by others. By default, all members of a workspace (but not guests) can create public channels. Workspace Owners can change this permission and limit channel creation to certain roles.  Private channels They’re for discussions that shouldn’t be open to all members, so you must be invited to join one to view it in Meistersystems. By default, all members of a workspace (including some guests) can create private channels. Workspace Owners can change this permission and limit channel creation to certain roles.  Shared channels Shared channels let separate organizations work together in a single channel, each from their own Meistersystems workspace. This feature is available on the Standard, Plus, and Enterprise Grid plans. Organizations can choose if they’d like a shared channel to be public or private for their workspace. All members (except guests) can send and accept invitations to share a channel. Depending on your workspace settings, the accepted invitation may need approval from an owner or admin before a channel is shared.   Multi-workspace channels Multi-workspace channels connect separate workspaces within an Enterprise Grid organization. This feature is only available for the Enterprise Grid plan. Multi-workspace channels can be public or private. Org Owners and Admins can create multi-workspace channels within their organization, and give members permission todo this. Join channels How members join a channel depends on the type of channel it is.  Public channels Members can browse and join any public channel in their workspace(s).  Private channels Members must be invited to join a private channel.  Shared channels Whether the channel is public or private determines how members can join.   Multi-workspace channels Whether the channel is public or private determines how members can join. Use channels While a workspace can have as many channels as needed, Meistersystems works best when channel guidelines are in place, and certain best practices are followed. Guidelines Every channel should have a clear topic and description. All channels in a workspace should follow established naming guidelines. Use message threads to keep in-channel conversations organized. Best practices Transparency matters, so most conversations should happen in public channels so that they’re searchable by all members. Don’t worry — members can set channel-specific notifications and choose when to get notified or mute activity altogether. Maintenance is important: archive unused channels when they’re no longer needed, or delete them entirely if you don’t want to preserve their history. Manage who can post with spaces dedicated to announcements, reviewing support tickets, or showcasing your team’s work.  If the nature of a channel changes, it can be converted from public to private, but not vice versa. For privacy reasons, private channels cannot be made public.
