Intro to your workspace

Workspaces house your canvases, data, users, and projects.

What's in a workspace?

The workspace is the highest-level organizational unit in Count. Workspaces contain data, members, projects, and canvases. Typically, each organization has one workspace.
Workspace owners create and manage the workspace and it's billing settings. Owners and admins can invite other members and guests, and assign their project roles.

Workspace settings

From your Workspace settings, owners and admins can manage:
  • Whitelisted email domains - which users will automatically be added to a workspace (without a specific invitation)
    If the ACME workspace has whitelisted the domain, then anyone with [email protected] will be automatically added to the ACME workspace as a member when creating their account.
  • Public links - enable/disable the ability to share canvases with people outside the workspace.
  • Workspace guests - enable/disable the ability to have workspace guests.
  • Query result caching - enable/disable caching of query results.

Members & roles

Every member of the workspace has a role. These roles indicate which actions they can perform, and which resources they can access.

Within each project workspace members may be granted roles, which determine their access to project contents.

Projects are collections of members and canvases. They typically refer to departments (e.g. "Sales team"), or types of work (e.g. "Our data models").
Projects can be assigned database connections and members, and contain a collection of canvases.


At the heart of Count is your data, and owners or admins can manage database connections from the Connections section of your workspace:
  • Manage database credentials
  • Assign connections to projects
  • Update database schema
  • Delete the connection
