Administrative Functions

Here are some common acitivities on your workspace, and what each kind of user is allowed to do. Changes to permissions are done through the Users list of a workspace, not through my.pbworks.com.


The last column, covering anonymous users, is not applicable if you've made your workspace private in the Workspace Security settings.

*Anonymous users have no access to private workspaces.  Check your Workspace Security settings to see if Anonymous users can see your workspace.

**Readers may create comments on page, only if that option is allowed by the Administrators in the Workspace Security setting

***Anonymous users can only create comments on public workspaces if the following are true in the settings of the workspace:

  1. The anonymous user is logged in with a PBworks account.
  2. The workspace security settings allow Readers of the workspace to comment.
