Workspace settings

Control how your team uses Count.

The workspace settings page is where workspace owners and admins manage workspace-wide settings.

You can change your personal Count account settings from the avatar icon in the top right of the screen.

General settings

Workspace name

Workspace names can be any combination of letters, numbers and symbols (including emojis 👍). Name the workspace after your company or team.


You can whitelist specific website domains to give users with matching email addresses automatic access to your workspace.

Whitelisted users will automatically see an invitation to your workspace when they first create an account. If they do not accept the invitation to join, they will continue to see a pending invitation in the workspace selection menu.

If a whitelisted user doesn't have a Count account and is invited to a specific project or canvas they will also automatically become a workspace member.

Sharing settings

This setting prevents users being able to share canvases publicly.

Enabling this setting will instantly un-share any public canvases and cannot be reversed.

Disable workspace guests

This setting prevents projects and canvases being shared with users who are outside of the workspace and do not have a whitelisted email address.

Enabling this setting will instantly remove all guests from any projects or canvases and cannot be reversed.

Disable embeds

If this setting is enabled, Count will refuse to load canvases for this workspace when embedded in an iframe in other sites. This setting applies to all existing embeds in addition to any new ones, and can be safely enabled or disabled at any time.

Disable public alerts

If this setting is enabled, Count will only send alerts to users that are permitted to view the canvas that generated the alert. Note that disabling this setting does not grant access to any canvases, it only affects the delivery of alert notifications.

This setting must be disabled to allow sending alerts to arbitrary email addresses.

Other settings

Disable caching of query results

This setting prevents caching of query results, and prevents users from enabling this option within canvases. Enable this setting if you want to ensure that your data is never stored by Count.

Default cache duration for new canvases

This setting sets the default cache duration for any new canvases. This option can be overridden per-canvas. Read more about the effects of query caching here.

Disable CSV downloads

This setting disables the ability to download CSV files from any canvas cells or visuals.

Disable automatic cell execution in new canvases

If this setting is enabled, new canvases will default to manual cell execution. This setting can be overridden per-canvas from the query menu.

This feature is only available on Enterprise plans.

Deleting the workspace

This requires explicit confirmation after the option is selected by typing in the name of the workspace.

Once deleted a workspace and its contents cannot be restored - please double check that the deletion is intentional!
