How long does it take to set up a Gather Space?

The amount of time it takes to create a Gather Space varies greatly, depending on your personal design and technical experience. You've got four basic options to create your Space:

  1. Use our onboarding flow: We'll ask you a few questions and create a custom Space for you. Just head to and select why you're creating the Space. 
  2. Use a template: The fastest way to create a custom Space is to start with one of our templates and then customize it. Check out our Create a Space in 5 Minutes or Less article for steps! You can easily add Rooms to your Space from our templates, as well. 
  3. Create your own: The longer method is to design your own backgrounds through a third-party tool like Tiled or Adobe Photoshop, then upload those custom background images
  4. Hire a Service Partner: You can also check out our list of Gather-approved Service Partners who can do all the Space design for you!
