Joining and leaving workspaces

Joining your own workspaces

To join workspaces that you created in the past, simply go to the Preferences section, sign in with your Pagico ID account, and click on the "Auto-Join" button. There's no need to invite yourself to your workspace.

Joining your team's workspaces

To join a workspace that is owned/created by someone else, you will need an invitation code. The owners of the said workspace can issue you an invitation code. Each invitation code will be valid for up to 30 days, and it will work only once (as a security measure). Once you have your invitation code, you can switch to the Workspaces tab, click on the "+" button and choose "Join an existing workspace". Put in your invitation code and Pagico should take care of the rest.

Leaving a workspace

To leave a workspace, simply switch to the Workspaces section from the sidebar, hover your mouse cursor over the workspace in question, and click the "Leave" button. By leaving this workspace, you will continue to have access to all the projects & contacts that you own, but everything owned by other people/device will be automatically removed from your database.

 

Definition of Data Ownership
In Pagico, the author of a project or contact is the owner, and this ownership is tied to the database/device. Let's say you have two computers: a laptop and a desktop. If you created project A on your laptop and shared it in your workspace, then the laptop database owns the project A (and everything inside). If your desktop leaves your workspace, then project A will be removed from Pagico on your desktop. Alternatively, if your laptop leaves your workspace, then project A will be un-shared from the workspace but it will remain on your laptop.

Updating Container Ownership

When a team member is about to leave your team, or when you are planning to retire an old computer, this computer/device will soon leave your workspace. If you wish to preserve any of the shared containers that are owned by this outgoing device, you need to take the ownership of these containers first. To do so, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to this workspace in question.
  2. Click on the "Owner" column to sort all projects & contacts by owner
  3. Select (or multi-select) all the containers owned by the outgoing device, right-click, then choose "Take ownership" in the popup menu.

When this is done, the selected containers will be duplicated and re-ID'ed to be owned by you, the current user. The originals will be removed automatically, so you end up with duplicates.
