Teams and Workspaces

What is a Team?

In Deepnote, you have a default Personal Workspace that is only visible to you. However, you can also create Team Workspaces that allow you to seamlessly collaborate with others on your team. Both types of workspaces contain Projects which hold your notebooks and any other assets you need. You can see both kinds of workspaces in the left sidebar.

Why should I create a team?

There are three main benefits to creating a team.

1. Sharing and collaborating

Sharing multiple projects with others is much easier within a Team. By default, all team projects are shared with the rest of the team, so you don't have to manually share each project like you would in your Personal Workspace.
For example, if you want to share a notebook with your team, simply copy the url of your notebook and send it to them. Everyone on your team will be able to access the notebook, while those outside of your team will not.

2. Re-using resources

Within a Team Workspace, all environments and integrations that you create can be reused in the any of the team's projects—and all team members can access those resources too. For example, if you connect to a Snowflake database in one project, you'll be able to access the same database from other projects, and so will your team.
Note that you may also invite so-called "collaborators" to any project as well. Unlike team members, collaborators won't inherit access to environments and integrations outside of the project they were invited to.

3. Keeping things organized

When you are collaborating with others on a project or set of projects, Deepnote teams allow you to organize shared knowledge and resources in a single place. This makes notebooks easy to find, label, and duplicate. At a glance, you can easily see which projects are running, who created them, when they were last modified and more.
