Notify Participants About Your Workspace

Service notice: All Catalyst Web Tools–except WebQ Survey and GradeBook–will be retired. View timeline and details.


Participants and collaborators can access the workspace in two ways: through their Catalyst tools account page or by visiting a URL directly. When you add participants and collaborators to your workspace, an invitation to accept the workspace appears on their account page through a notification bubble. They can follow these steps to access the workspace through their account page.

You can also copy the workspace URL and send this to your participants. If you are creating a workspace for a course, you can paste the workspace URL in the space for a course Web site in MyUW.

Find the URL for your workspaces:
