It’s the virtual representation of a user, a group of credentials, profile information, settings and content owned by the user. Seems familiar, right? As a Slingshot user you own different types of content, like the files you upload, the messages you write and the dashboards you create. All those are part of your Slingshot account and are associated to you as a user. That being said, you do have full control over the content you own.

The Organization workspace is named after your organization (for example, your company’s name). Members need to log in with their organization’s email to be associated with the Organization workspace. Team members in the Organization can share Discussions, Content and Analytics with each other.

Workspaces can be associated with the Organization workspace or not. They can include members from within and out of the main Organization. Workspace members share not only Content, Analytics, and Discussions, but also Tasks and sub-workspaces.

In Slingshot you can have personal and shared tasks, they work pretty much the same but they do have a few differences detailed below. Only you have access to your personal tasks and you can find them in your personal space (Home). All the members of a workspace can access the tasks created within that workspace, no matter who is assigned. And every member can manage these shared tasks freely.
