Sharing and permissions

Odyssey comes with fine-grained permission controls of your spaces.

Share a space with your organization

Anyone that is a member of your current organization will be able to see any space you create within that organization.

The permission of these users depends on their organization role. admins and editors have can edit permissions on spaces, while viewers only have can view permissions.

Share a space with one person

You can invite people outside your organization by opening the Share menu.

When in a space, go to Share button at the top right.

Enter the person's email address in the space provided, choose a level of access from the dropdown (i.e. can view, can edit), and click Invite.

Share a space with the web

To make your space visible to anyone that has the link, you can turn on Publish space.

Anyone that joins through the Publish space method will have can view permissions. If you want any of these users to have edit access, you can invite them individually.

Using Odyssey Authentication

By default, published spaces have Odyssey's Authentication enabled. This allows you to more easily track who is entering your space by having users sign in with their email.

You disable this, and users will be able to enter your space immediately.

When embedding is turned on this is also automatically disabled.

When using Odyssey Authentication users only sign-in one time, and then will be automatically signed-in on all future visits to your content.


Permissions on spaces are easy to understand. All users have one of two permissions:

  • can edit: The user is able to add or edit content in the space.

  • can view: The user cannot edit any content in the space.
