5. Create workspace

Once you have logged into CommSy, follow these steps to create a new workspace and become its moderator:

  1. Select “New project workspace” from the workspace overview on the right-hand side.
  2. You will be taken to a page containing a form (Fig. 6).
  3. Enter a title and choose whether you want a German or English interface for your workspace.

All other fields are optional. They provide users of the workspace with clearer guidance. We recommend that you complete the fields “Semester” and “Description”, as this will make it easier for potential members to find your workspace.

The “Template” field is a special feature. Select a template to open a workspace that already has some content. In addition to the standard template, templates from the field of general professional skills are available
