Where do my sessions get created?

Understand where your new sessions will be located, and how you can tell to which workspace a session belongs

As a Free, Individual or Pro user of SessionLab, you have access to one workspace: your Personal workspace. As a consequence of this, all the sessions you create will automatically be created in your Personal workspace.

If you create a session while being in the Recents view, the session will automatically be placed in your Personal workspace. If you create a session while being in a folder in your Personal workspace, then the session will be created in the folder.

Don’t worry, you can easily move your session within your folder structure, see more information here.

If you are a member of another workspace in SessionLab, then you also have access to that workspace, as well as your own Personal workspace. In this case, if you are in the Recents view, the default workspace where your sessions get created will be the workspace that is selected on the left, under the Team menu.

If you are not in the Recents view, but in the dashboard of a workspace, or any of their subfolders, then the session you create will get created at the workspace and folder where you were located when pressing the New Folder button.

Every session created under any workspace will be visible with viewer rights to all members of that workspace.

How can I see which workspace a session of mine belongs to?

If you are viewing any workspace, then naturally you only see the sessions belonging to that workspace. However, you might ask, how do I know which workspace my session belongs to if I am in the Recents view or if I have already opened the session?

You can find the answer in the collaborators’ list. You will see a workspace logo listed among the collaborators, which means that the session belongs to that workspace.

You also can find the same information if you open the session in the Session Planner, and navigate to the Share button at the top of the planner.

You can see on the image above that this session belongs to the workspace of “My Team Workspace”, and therefore all members that workspace have the right to view this session.
