Definitions and concepts

Workspace The main place where all of your maps and data live.
Project A subset of maps within the workspace. Can be public (open to all members in the workspace) or private (invite only)
Map A map in Felt
Admin Someone with full permissions in the workspace and that workspace’s projects
Owner Creator of a project or map in Felt. Owners have full permissions on the maps they create
Editor Someone with permissions to create and manage maps or data in the workspace
Viewer Someone who can only view the workspace, project, or map. They can leave comments on maps for free but they will not see the Felt toolbar when viewing the map.
Guest Someone who is not invited to the workspace or project but has been shared a map or invited to view a map.
Recents Lists all the maps in you have recently viewed or edited. Can be filtered down to show: maps you own (”Mine”) or maps that belong to the current workspace (”Workspace”). Viewing all maps includes public maps you have viewed.
Drafts Lists the maps you created in this Workspace that do not belong to any Project in the Workspace. Unique and personal to each Workspace Editor.


Workspaces host all the maps and data for your organization. Data storage and published Layers are shared across the entire Workspace. A workspace must have at least 1 admin at all times.

There are three permissions at the workspace-level:

Standard and Professional plans bill Workspaces based on the number of editors (admins + editors) there are. Viewers are free.
