Space-Wide Calendar

Add a space-wide calendar to sync events with everyone in the space. The space calendar is integrated though an iCal link and must be set as "public" to be added to the space. 

You can add new calendar events with Custom Spawn Tile location links if you: 

  1. Have an Admin, Mod, Builder, or Member user role
  2. Have permission in the calendar application you are using to add events. 

Hide Tutorial In This Space

When toggled on, users will skip the tutorial and immediately enter the space. 

Preload All Assets

Load as many assets as possible prior to entering a Space.

Enabling this feature will increase load time and memory usage

Disable Invite Button

When toggled on, the "Invite" button will not display in the Participants Panel. We recommend using this for private conferences and events. 

Preserve Chat History

When toggled on, chat history will be visible when someone reloads or re-enters the space. If turned off, future chat messages will not be saved. Existing chat history will not be affected.
