To Create the space , you will have to click on the Create Space link that is marked to open a dialog to create the space. The Name, Description and the Keywords are entered to create a space. Adding keywords will help to find your spaceĀ  from the available spaces.

The next section will allow you to provide the URL for your space. You can also set your access level in this section. You can make the space visible to anyone by making it Public or set an invitation based access with the Private access.
