Restrict Access to a Space

At times you may want to limit who can read and participate in some discussions. You must be the moderator of a space or team to be able to restrict access to it. You can restrict access to a space or a team in these ways:
  •  Lock a space
  •  Remove someone from a space
  •  Remove someone from a team space
  •  Remove someone from a team

Teams and Team Spaces

You can't lock a team space because teams are available to the people on the team. After being added to a team, team members can join any team space they choose. If you need to restrict access to teams and team spaces, you can remove that person from the team space, or remove that person from the team altogether.

Spaces

When you lock a space, you automatically become the moderator for that space. After the space is locked, only a moderator can remove someone from the space.
