Workspaces & Apps
How-to create & manage Workspaces and Apps
When you first sign-up to Quest, you will get a default Workspace and App. When importing components from Figma, these components will go into that default App. You can rename it and export as many components as you like to this App.
Sometimes you want to create multiple Apps or Workspaces. For example, there may be multiple Apps your team is working on or you may have multiple clients all with different Apps you’re working on for them. Using Workspaces, you can separate your work in Quest into these different projects and also manage permissions on who has access to what.
There are 3 different subscription plans in Quest.
A workspace is a collection of Apps. An App is made up of several components. When you first sign-up for Quest, you will be given your first Workspace and App. Depending on your plan, you can add additional Apps to that Workspace and have a certain amount of users in that Workspace at the same time.
If you are an agency, think of a Workspace as a folder for your client. And each App inside that Workspace is a different project for that client.
Team Tab in your Account Settings
When you click on the drop-down in the upper-left and select "Team", this will allow you to manage all users in your account. If you are the first user on your team you will be automatically designated an Admin. Admins can invite and delete users as well as see what workspaces they've been assigned to. Admins also have the ability to change roles from Editor to Admin.
Admins can also see all Workspaces and Apps in the account. They can only access the components and download the code for the Apps to which they've been assigned but they can do basic management like assigning team members to Workspaces and changing the Workspace or App name and thumbnail image.
Workspaces & Apps
When you click on the Workspace tab, you will see a list of all your Workspaces at the top and all associated Apps at the bottom.
Workspace Details Tab
When you choose the "Edit Settings" menu item from the drop-down of the 3 dots for the Workspace, it will take you to the Workspace Details tab. From here you can rename the Workspace, add a unique icon for the Workspace, or delete the Workspace.
Workspace Team Tab
When you click on the "Workspace Team" tab, you'll be able to see what users are assigned to that Workspace. Only users that are assigned to the Workspace have the ability to add, edit and delete components as well as Export individual components or an entire App. If a user is not in that particular Workspace, they will not see it when they are logged in to Quest. Only an Admin has the ability to see all Workspaces for an account and manage who's in the team. However, if the Admin is not added to that Workspace, they won't be able to export components or the App, only manage the team and details.
Any user added to account can add a Workspace or App. Once they've added it, they will also be able to assign any existing team members to the Workspace. Only an admin can delete Apps and Workspaces.
Quest charges for each user in each workspace. Here are some examples of how that may affect billing at the end of the month:
In Case 1, your team may only have 3 account users. But in this case Quest will charge for 5 workspace users because we look at how many users there are total in combined workspaces you are using (with the price dependent on plan).
In Case 1, your team has 10 account users. Because those 10 users are split evenly across 2 Workspaces (5 + 5), Quest will charge for 10 workspace users because again, we look at how many users there are total in combined workspaces you are using.
