Spaces FAQs

What can be in a Space? 

With Spaces, you have much more flexibility in how you delivery content, courses, commerce, and community on your Network. 

Every Network will be organized with Spaces—they are flexible, no code containers. They live in the left-hand navigation. 

Now, here's where it gets really interesting. On other platforms you're limited in what you can bring together. Not on Mighty! 

In each Space you can have different native features. No integrations required. So if you'd like to have a Chat, and a Feed, and Events—easy. 

You can rename and reorganize the left-hand navigation and each Space and the tabs within the Space. So if you want to call your Chat tab in a Space "Connect" or "Say Hi" or "Чат" or "Dinos ¡Hola!" ....it's totally up to you! 

You can control access to each Space. They can be public, private, paid, or even token-gated (natively—no bots required!). 

Each Space can have up to 8 features. You can mix and match them but you can’t have duplicates (e.g. you can’t have two chats in one Space). 

  • A chat
  • A feed
  • An event series
  • A member list
  • A discovery tab for featured content
  • A table of contents (to create courses)*
  • A page*
  • A single event* (coming soon after December 8th)

*These features are only available on The Business Plan. Table of Contents is how you'll create structured course content, and Page and Single Event are new features we're adding with this release. 

Each Space will also have an “About page” which is less customizable than the new Page feature. 

How do I keep it all organized?

In the left-hand navigation, every Space will live in a Collection.

For example, you could have a Collection called “Start Here” and in it add a simple Page Space that outlines how you want members to contribute to the culture of your community and a Space that has a Chat tab called “Say Hi!” and a members list.

Or you could have a Collection called “Premium Programs” where you put all of the Spaces you’re charging for. 

You can easily move Spaces between Collections. You cannot have the same Space in two Collections. 

Right now, you can’t have a Space without a Collection—but that will be coming in a future update.  

When will Spaces be available to every Network on Mighty?

We’ll be rolling out Spaces to everyone, starting on December 8th. There is no action required on your part. 

I have a pretty robust Mighty Network. What will the transition to Spaces  do to everything I’ve built out?

Not to worry! It’ll be fairly straightforward.  

Your existing Groups and Courses will become Spaces that are organized into Collections called “Groups” and “Courses.” From that starting point, you can customize and change everything to take advantage of all the new possibilities. 

And rest assured, whatever your current members have access to today, they will still have access to. You won’t need to change privacy settings or plans for anything. 

What happens to my Topics?

With this update, hashtags and Spaces are replacing Topics.

You can select what to do with the content in your Network-level Topics before December 8th.

You have three options:

  • Topics Become Spaces
  • Topic Content is Hashtagged 
  • Both

If you select Topic Content is Hashtagged, the content in all your Topics will remain in your Home Space (formerly the main Network) and will include a hashtag matching the name of the Topic it was previously assigned. Members can easily search hashtags to bring up content and you can even highlight hashtags to help direct them. 

If you select Topics Become Spaces, the content in each Topic will migrate to individual Spaces and no longer be part of the Home Space.So, if you had a Topic called Wins you’d then have a Space called Wins and all the content in that Topic would be found there. 

If you select Both, the content within each Topic will migrate to individual Spaces and it will include a hashtag matching the name of the Topic it was previously assigned. So in the above example, you’d have a Space called Wins and the content in it would be hashtagged with #Wins. So, if people in your Network were searching for that hashtag, they’d find the content in the Space and any other content across the Network (in the Spaces they have access to) with the same hashtag. 

Topics that you have set up inside of your existing Groups and Courses will become hashtags that work across your Spaces. 

To learn more about these options, check out “How Do Topics Migrate in Spaces?”

Will I be able to group Spaces of different types under one Collection? 

Yes, that’s why we wanted to give you this flexibility! You will be able to group any number of Spaces together in a Collection. 

Can I duplicate a Space?

Yes, you will be able to duplicate any Space in your Mighty Network.

Is there a limit to how many Spaces I can have in a Collection?

There's no limit to how many Spaces you can have in a Collection!

Can I change the order of the features along the top navigation within a Space?

Yes! You will be able to rename and reorder each of the features you choose to enable with a Space.

What are Global Features?

Global Features are available to all members no matter what Space they are a member of. They curate content and information from across all Spaces.

The Global Features are:

  • Feed: The Feed Global Feature aggregates content from all Spaces that you have access to into one Feed. By 12/8 you will be able to post directly from the Global Feed after first selecting a Space. You will be able to interact (i.e., cheer and comment, answer polls, etc.) with the content in the Feed. 
  • Discovery: This works like it does today! You can use this to feature any number of posts, Events, and Spaces so that you can customize exactly what your members see when they open up the Discovery page on the web or in the Mighty Networks app.
  • Members: This will show a list of all members in your Mighty Network, regardless of which Space they are members of.
  • Events: This works similarly as it does today where it will aggregate Events across all your Spaces. Each member will see the Events that are happening inside of each Space they are a member of. 

Will I be able to turn off, rename, and reorder Global Features?

You’ll be able to turn off, rename, and reorder all Global Features by December 8th. 

With hashtags coming as part of this update, will I be able to tag a post with multiple hashtags?

Yes! This will greatly expand on what Topics can do today. With the addition of hashtags in this release, you will be able to tag a piece of content or an event with multiple hashtags and search and filter easily to view posts and content shared tagged with a particular hashtag.

Can I make it so that only Hosts and Moderators can create hashtags?

Anyone who is a part of your Mighty Network will be able to create hashtags when they are posting and sharing content, but as a Host, you'll eventually be able to disable certain hashtags you don't want to be used, and you'll have the option to delete hashtags from posts where you don't want them used (including posts created by members)

Will I be able to have Spaces within Spaces?

There will not be an option to have Spaces within Spaces. However, hashtags will enable you to further segment and organize content within a Space—and tag the content posted within a Space with more than one hashtag!

Where does the Welcome Checklist show up in the new world of Spaces?

The Welcome Checklist will continue to be global and available to everyone across your Network, and you will also still be able to have a Welcome Section within each Space (just like you can do today in a Group or Course).In the future you’ll have the the ability to create a different Welcome Checklist for each Space. 

With these new features, can I choose which Space (or Spaces) my members are auto-joined into when they first show up and join my community?

Yes, you have the option to designate any public Space as auto join. The auto join feature will join your current members and any following members to that Space when they first become members.

Can a piece of content or an event live in multiple Spaces?

The same rules that exist today in your Mighty Network with Groups and Courses will exist in this new world—a post or an Event can live in only one Space at any given time.

Will I be able to move content from one Space to another?

Yep! In fact, we're going to make it even easier with this release to move content from one Space to another Space so that you won't lose interactions such as comments or cheers. 

Will Plans be able to include Spaces from multiple Collections?

Yes! Plans that enable you to charge for access to your entire Mighty Network or any combination of Spaces within your Network will continue to work as they do today. You will be able to charge for access to a bundle of Spaces regardless of which Collection(s) they belong to.

While you can’t create a Plan for a Collection, you can create a Bundle Plan for all the Spaces in a Collection. 

Will anything be changing with how notifications work?

Notifications will function the same way they do today—by default new members will receive a Daily Digest rounding up all of their relevant notifications across your Mighty Network, and members can choose which Spaces they want to receive notifications for. There will continue to be a global list of settings each member can customize depending on the type of notifications they want to receive and whether they want to receive notifications via email or directly through your Mighty Pro mobile apps. Here's a quick primer on how our notifications work!

Will I still have the same privacy options for Spaces?

Yes, you will be able to decide if your Space is Public, Private, Paid, or Secret. Right now we are planning for privacy to be set at the Space level, not the Collection level. But this is something we will look into offering!
