Working with group members

TIMU networks are organized into groups, and further broken down into spaces.


A TIMU group is a collection of people who work together on something. A group can represent a department, a large project, a club, a committee, or even your entire organization. It’s up to you and your organization how you want to set up your groups.

You can manage a group's membership from the option menu next to the group in the navigation area, or from the settings page available via your account menu.


A space is where your groups collaborate, share files, plan, and get work done. Each group can have multiple spaces to help you organize multiple projects. Every space is automatically made available to all members of the group it belongs to.

Each space has for tabs: Posts, Files, Plans, and Events.


The Posts module is a place for members of your space to post announcements, get feedback, and stay up-to-date on what’s happening within the space. Similar to a group chat, you can type comments and replies, attach files, react to individual messages with emoji, and tag other space members using the @mention feature. However, unlike a group chat, notifications about replies to a post will only be sent the the other people involved in the post. If you want to make sure that someone else sees your post, @mention them. The user you mention will receive a notification about your post that they can follow directly into the chat.

In addition to comments posted directly to the Posts module, this feed also displays comments made in other tabs within the space, including comments associated with files, events, and cards. These comments appear with a different background color, and indicate the file, event, or card they belong to. You can click on the name of the parent record to go directly to its details.


Each space has its own file library accessible only to members of that space. All files attached anywhere in the space appear here - including post attachments, attachments to event comments, and attachments to task comments.

Events that pertain to the work being done in a space can be created from within the space itself. To create a new event, click the Events tab at the top of the space, then click the “New Event” button.

The Events tab lists all events within the space which are either currently ongoing, or are scheduled for the future. By default, canceled and past events are hidden from view. To see past of canceled events, click the checkbox labeled “Display past or canceled events only”.

All users can view the details of an event, or click the “Join” button to go directly to the lobby for the event’s video call.

Note that each event only appears once in the list of events, even if it is a recurring event. To view or modify a specific occurrence of an event series, open the event’s details and select the occurrence you want using the calendar in the upper right.
