Workspaces are collaborative spaces on the Observable platform where editors can create notebooks, host projects, and collaborate with team members in private. Assets such as notebooks and projects are created in a workspace.

A workspace has a tier (Starter, Pro, or Enterprise) which defines the features available in that workspace. These are described on our Pricing page.

Creating more workspaces

When a new user signs up for Observable, they can either create a workspace, or join an existing workspace (if they were invited to join). Users can create or join any number of workspaces. To create an additional workspace, use to the workspace selector in the top left of the home screen and select 'Create workspace'.

Users can switch between their workspaces without needing to log into different accounts. See image above.
