Copying a space

To copy a space in Gather, you first have to create a new space. On the left side of your screen you will find a list of recent spaces. At the bottom of this list, you will find the button 'Create new space.' By clicking on this button, you will start the creation process.

After clicking on this button, a new screen will open where you can customize your space. You have three important choices to make:

  1. Select your template. Because we are copying a space, we want to use an existing space as our template. You can select the space of your choice, by clicking on 'Copy from existing space.’ This will give you a list with all spaces of which you are an owner. Select the one you want.

  2. Once you have chosen your template, it is time to chose a name. Please make sure you are content with the name, as you cannot change it later. The name will also be part of the url of your space.

  3. Lastly you will have to indicate how you are going to use the space. This has no consequenses for the space. Gather just asks you this for statistical purposes. Once you have chosen an option, you can click on 'Create space' to create your space.

Please note that you can only copy spaces of which you are an owner. If you want to copy someone else’s space, ask them to make you a co-owner of their space first.
