What is Workplace？
Workplace is used to display the carousel banner, app "widgets" and various apps. It is a good place for teams to promote organizational culture, integrate information quickly, and improve the work efficiency of members.
Click Workplace icon in the main navigation bar of Feishu to enter Workplace.
How to use Workplace？
At the top of Workplace there's a carousel banner. Maintained by the administrators, the carousel banner is a good place to learn about team culture. Big announcements and event notifications can also be presented here. Make sure to check it out from time to time.
As an administrator, click Settings - Carousel Banner to upload or replace the banner images, and specify the banner navigation URL and interval timer.
Note: In the previous version of Workplace, the Feishu Admin Workplace configuration page is opened in browser when administrators click Settings at the top-right corner of Workplace. With the new Workplace, we've re-designed the buttons. Now if you want to go to the Feishu Admin, click your profile image - Administration - Workplace.
2. Configure Workplace
A series of apps will be displayed in the top area of Workplace, some of which are recommended by the administrator and closely related to the daily business.
As the administrator, you can manage the following settings in Workplace:
- •Set recommended apps. The recommended apps will be displayed in the top area of your members' Workplace.
- •Customize app groups. After grouping, Workplace will display apps according to your settings. Apps that aren't included in the categories you set won't be displayed in the members' Workplace, so members need to search for those apps. This function helps to put away some apps that aren't frequently used or only serve a few members, and improves the efficiency of Workplace.
In the top area, besides apps recommended by the administrator, you can also add frequently used apps on your own. There are two ways to add frequently used apps. You can click the Frequently Used button, search for the app you frequently use and add it with one click. You can also click Settings - Add App to add frequently used apps.
On Workplace, you can see dynamic small windows called app widgets. With the widget feature, the app can display some important information in a small window in real time. You can enter Workplace and view the information without opening these apps one by one. At present, our partners Foxsaas CRM, TodoNow, among others, have enabled widget feature, and more apps will develop widgets. You only need to set them as frequently used apps to view their widgets in the top area of Workplace. Workplace is a treasure chest where you can find and utilize various useful apps. Click Find More Apps at the top to open the Feishu App Directory. The App Directory provides you with hundreds of apps. New functions such as the classified navigation bar to view apps by category, and the smart search to find apps with keywords, etc. can help organizations improve efficiency of learning and work management.
Click Get to install. If a reminder shows that your team hasn't enabled or installed the app, please contact the administrator to enable the app for your team.
Besides the apps provided by Feishu partners from the App Directory, you can also easily build custom apps with Feishu Developer by clicking the Create App button at the top. You can quickly integrate existing internal systems or third-party tools with open APIs into Feishu, and develop new apps on your own. Visit the official website of Feishu Developer to learn more.
