How do I create a new space?

You can create a space at any time.  On the My Kona page, click the Spaces icon in the left sidebar and choose “Add.”  Another option is to click “Add Space” from the Space page.  Click here to learn more about the Space page.  

To create a new space: Enter a name for your space in the Space Name field.  Then specify if the space should be categorized in the Work or Personal section.  Add a description to display with your space name across Kona and add some personality to your space by choosing an image from your computer or the Kona image library.  The picture also helps members easily identify and connect with your space while in Kona.  Finally, choose a color to identify the tasks and calendar events related to this space.  When you’re done, click “Next” in the lower right.  On the next screen, you can enter a lengthy description to orient your team to the space.  When you’ve finished typing, click “Add.”  You will be able to edit this description later by clicking on the “About this space” link on the right side of the space.  After clicking “Add,” you can add people to the space now or “Skip This” to begin building your space before issuing invitations.

    Hi Andrea,

    That sounds like a defect.  I'll open up a support case with you so we can investigate this further.

    can I change the image or color?  I have tried to pick different color when I create them, but all ended up using the default image. How can I fix this

    Sorry, I mean space color. or I missed the definition of space color. not see where the color shows up in each of the spaces I have created with different color. I found where I can edit it.

    snjcoleman,

    Refreshing the browser (closing and re-opening) solved the issue in this case.  If that does not work for you, please open a support case and we can investigate this further.

    Is it possible to set up a new space using my iPad app? I don't see the option for doing this.
    Thanks!

    Hi Brian, 

    At this time, the iOS app does not offer the ability to add a new space. We can certainly see the value of this mobile feature and we are working on this for a future build. 

    thanks, 

    Katie
