Overview of Organizations, Workspaces, and Members

Let’s get an overview of organizations, workspaces, and members!

In this article:


An organization is an entity that usually corresponds with your company. It is made up of workspaces and members. To prevent confusion, we recommend that you name your organization so it directly relates to your business’ name. 

Note: We recommend you refrain from using ‘Default Organization’ as your organization name since it will be confusing for you when you have to identify/differentiate one organization and its elements from another.

Organization Members

  • You can add as many members to your organizations as your plan supports.
  • You can promote members to be organization administrators and they will have some administrator privileges at the organization level; they can do everything an owner can except transferring, deleting and editing an organization.
  • A member must be part of the organization before they can be added to workspaces of that organization.

Workspaces are created within an organization. It corresponds to how you group individuals within your company – departments, project teams, or other grouping. It allows specific access to its members. You can have multiple workspaces in an organization.

Workflows, documents, forms, contracts, and quick signs are created and run at the workspace level.

Actions bound to the workspace level:

  • Workflows – When you create and run workflows, it is within the context of a workspace. 
  • Integrations – Integrations to Zapier or other 3rd party applications can be made at the workspace level. This security aspect should be taken into consideration when defining workspaces.
  • API access tokens – When you generate API access tokens, it is bound to the workspace level.

Workspace Members
