Space Access

These settings help you manage who and how people can access your space. 

Enable Guest Check-In

When enabled, all non-members will need to request access to enter the space from an online Member.

Enabling this will replace password protection. In addition, guests will be able to see the names and activity status of all Space members when checking-in. 

Space Password

Restrict access to your Office with a password. To set a new password, type it in the field and click Save. To remove the password, click Remove.

There is currently no way to view the existing password.

Require Login

This requires guests entering your space to have a Gather account and be signed in. 

Allow Staff Access

Occasionally, Gather staff may need to access your space to support you in troubleshooting an issue. Toggle on Allow Gather Staff Access so we can enter without needing your password or to be a Member. 

Email Domain Access (Premium Feature) 

If you have an active subscription, you can restrict access to users logged in with specific domains.

Role Configuration

These settings allow you to customize certain features by user role. For example, some teams like to give all Members access to the Build Tool. Others like to limit this feature to Admins and Mapmakers
