Introducing the Workspaces Gallery View

16 Sep

One of the most popular features we’ve introduced is the Gallery View of files and wiki pages.  This thumbnail view complements the standard list view of files, and makes it easy for you to visually pick out the files you’re looking for.

However, files within a workspace aren’t the only list that could benefit from a Gallery View.  Over time, we’ll be adding visual Gallery Views to other parts of PBworks.  We’ve just taken the first step in that process by introducing the Workspaces Gallery View.

The Workspaces Gallery View lets you switch the Workspaces tab from a list view to a visual grid.  To make the switch, just click the Gallery icon next to the “New” button.  The visual grid uses the workspace logos you’ve uploaded; in cases where you haven’t uploaded a logo, one of the default textures will be displayed.  To upload a new workspace logo, go to the Settings tab and click on “Branding”:

Clicking on a workspace logo (or texture) takes you to that workspace.  To bring up a workspace card, mouse over the name of that workspace.

Like the Gallery View of files, the Workspaces Gallery View is a “sticky” setting–once you switch the Workspaces tab to the gallery view mode, it will stay switched until you switch it back.  Whether you’re viewing the Workspaces tab in list view or gallery view, the number of workspaces shown per screen remains the same.
