Sharing a workspace
DataCamp Workspace supports real-time collaboration in notebooks (think Google Docs but for data science) and sharing your workspaces with different access rights.
To share a workspace, click the 'Share' button in the nav bar when you're in a workspace.
In this modal, you can:
  • Invite specific people to your workspace: type their emails, select the role, and click 'Invite'.
    • The collaborators you add will receive an email with the link to the workspace.
    • Currently, only users that already have a DataCamp account can be invited.
    • If the collaborators you add visit their dashboard, the workspace will appear in their list of workspaces.
  • Give access to your workspace to anyone with the link.
    • Anyone who is given a link to your workspace will be able to access it, as long as they have a DataCamp account.
    • Note that projects that are shared publicly can be indexed by Google and hence may show up in the search results.
  • Give access to all members in the group that this workspace is part of (only available for group workspaces; seePersonal and group workspaces for more info)


If you are sharing a project via a link or invite, you can give different people (or groups of people) different roles)
  • Viewer - Can read the workspace contents, but cannot make edits, leave comments, execute code or manage sharing settings.
  • Commenter - Can read workspace contents and comment on notebook cells, but cannot make edits, execute code or manage sharing settings.
  • Editor - Can read, edit, and execute workspace contents. Can rename, share and publish the workspace.
  • Owner (only the project creator) - Can do everything the editor can do, but can also delete the workspace.
If you have created a publication from your workspace (see Creating a Publication), additional roles are possible to further tweak the access control.
  • Publication Viewer - Can view the publication but cannot access not the workspace.
  • Publication Commenter - Can view and comment on the publication but cannot access the workspace.
