Selecting Workspace Modules


Concept


Steps:

  1. Begin by navigating to the Modules page for the collaborative workspace.

     

    Click the Portal Administration link.

    Step 1
  2. Click the Workspaces link.

    Step 2
  3. Click the Manage Workspaces link.

    Step 3
  4. Click an entry in the Workspace column.

    Step 4
  5. Notice that the Links and Poll pagelets currently appear in the right column of the welcome page. These pagelets are associated with workspace modules that you will remove during this task.

     

    Click the Administration link.

    Step 5
  6. Click the Modules tab.

    Step 6
  7. Use the Modules page to select the modules that you want to include in or remove from the collaborative workspace. The Modules page also provides access to define additional properties for the Documents and Related Data modules.

     

    The Welcome, Members, and Administration modules are required in each collaborative workspace and cannot be removed. You can choose to remove a module even after activity has been performed in the module without losing any data. Clearing the Select option for a module simply removes link access to the module from the collaborative workspace’s menu; all module data is preserved. Any associated pagelet is also removed from the workspace’s welcome page. If you decide to include the module in the collaborative workspace again, all module activity that existed in the module before removal will be accessible.

     

    In this example, as the workspace administrator, you will remove two modules from the workspace.

    Step 7
  8. Remove the first module.

     

    Click the Select option.

    Step 8
  9. Remove the second module.

     

    Click the Select option.

    Step 9
  10. Click the Save button.

    Step 10
  11. Notice that the modules have been removed from the workspace’s menu.

     

    Click the Welcome link.

    Step 11
  12. Notice that the associated pagelets have also been removed from the workspace’s welcome page.

    Step 12

You have completed selecting workspace modules for a collaborative workspace.
