    Creating a new public workspace.

    By default, all authenticated users will have the capability to create new workspaces. If you decide to disable this capability site-wide, you can choose to assign the Workspace Owner role to specific users to allow them to create workspaces.

    After the workspace has been created, any Workspace Owners can update the workspace's details and thumbnail image.

    Note that if a user is deleted, any workspaces they have created will not be deleted. If they were the Workspace Owner you may want to transfer ownership of the workspace to another user. Any contributions created by the deleted user (e.g. resources, playlists and surveys) will be deleted, so you may need to recreate any important contributions in the workspace.
