The Basics

Help Center > Tips

Samepage is designed to be flexible without being overly complicated. Learning a bit about Samepage's structure will help you decide which style of use is best for your organization.


Samepage groups people and their content together in what we call "Teams". Your organization can have multiple teams. Each one will contain its own unique set of people and shared content such as files, conversations, tasks, calendars, and pages.

Samepage structure


On a desktop computer, Samepage is displayed with organization-level content on the left, followed by team-level content, followed by the main display. The main display typically shows chat messages, files, tasks, calendar events, and pages belonging to the team you're currently visiting. The color-coded examples below show that you are visiting the CHAT section in the "Everyone" team.

On a mobile device, this is displayed in separate screens. The organization-level screen provides access to your teams and more.

The example below shows that upon selecting the Everyone team, the main display shows the team's CHAT section. From there, you can navigate to other team-level content using the icons at the bottom of the screen. You can always return to your organization-level content by tapping the Samepage icon in the upper right corner.

Choosing a style of use that fits with your organization

There are 3 common ways in which organizations use teams:

1. By department

Organizations often create a team for each department. Typical team names include Accounting, Human Resources, Marketing, Engineering, Sales, etc.

2. By project

More project-oriented organizations tend to create a new team for each project. Once the project is complete, they archive the team to hide and preserve the content.

3. The hybrid approach

Larger organizations use what we call "Sub-teams" to create a mix of the two approaches above. A parent team is created for each department, and sub-teams are created under each department's team to manage larger departmental projects.
