How to Create a Workspace

Learn how to create a workspace to power all your product analytics visualizations


A workspace in Houseware is where you can start doing your analysis by adding modular blocks to create - visualizations (flows, funnels, trends, etc.), texts, or any other embeds you want. It is one of the building blocks of Houseware that allows you to curate your product analysis.

Let's not keep you waiting anymore and quickly jump into how to create your workspace on Houseware. 🀩

Step-by-step guide

Follow the steps given below to create your own workspace and use it to create powerful Houseware product analytics visualizations!

Step 1: Click + Add Workspace button

As soon as you log in to your Houseware account, the first page that you see is your workspace homepage. It will be empty if you do not have any existing created or shared workspaces on your account.

You will see a + button next to the Workspaces heading on the top left-hand side. Click on it, and you will be redirected to a new workspace page. A workspace created successfully message will also pop up on your screen, as shown in the image below.


Note: By default the workspace will be named after your username. You can just click on it and change it as per your need.

You can also change your workspace icon visible next to it on the left. Just click on it and select the one you prefer, as shown in the gif below.

Step 2: Add a block

Click on the + sign that you see on the top left to add a block. A help message is also written on top of it, prompting the user to click on it to get started.

A block is a sub-unit of your workspace. Through blocks, you can add visualizations, text, and other embeds on your workspace and customize it as per your needs.

The product analytics block type lists all visualizations that you can create on top of your product analytics events data, like flows, funnels, retention, trends, etc., as shown in the image above.

As soon as you click a block type, you will have to configure and basically design it as per your requirement.

To learn more about configuring the product analytics blocks, refer to the Product Analysis section of the docs.

Types of blocks

There are 4 types of blocks that you can add:
