Account Types

When you log in to mudstack, you have access to 1 or more accounts. An account can be either a single user account (Artist plan) or a multi-user account (all other plans).

What you can see and do within an account depends on the plan that account is subscribed to and what your specific permissions have been set to.

Single User Accounts

Every mudstack user gets a free personal account on sign up. This account is subscribed to the free Artist plan. Artist plan accounts have a single user and do not allow collaborators.

Multi User Accounts

You can create or be invited to one or more multi user accounts. These accounts must be subscribed to one of the following plans— i.e. the Team, Indie or Enterprise plan.

To create a new multi user account, click the + button in the left account navigation pane and select a plan.

Each account contains 1 or more workspaces. A workspace is a container that a specific file can belong to. An empty workspace is created by default for each new account.

At this point, you cannot transfer files between workspaces from the mudstack interface.

Workspaces are ideal for managing distinct projects or giving access to a secure area for internal or external teams. How you choose to use workspaces is up to you— if you need any advice, be sure to get in touch with our team.

Depending on the plan and your permissions on that account, a workspace may or may not be visible to you.

Create a New Workspace From Scratch

creating a workspace in mudstack

If you don’t have an existing project or collection of files to import, you can create a new workspace by clicking the New Workspace button in the left sidebar. In the desktop app, you will need to map this workspace to a location on your machine.

Convert an Existing Directory

If you have an existing directory of content you would like to bring into mudstack, you can convert it to a mudstack workspace.

Let’s assume you have a My New Project directory located at C:\My Files\My New Project. To import this, follow these steps:


Create a New Workspace

Give this workspace the exact same name as the directory you want to import, e.g. My New Project.


Specify the Location

Next, set the location by selecting the parent directory of the directory you want to import. In this example, you should specify My Files as the location.


Allow mudstack to Index Contents

Finally, allow mudstack to finish indexing the contents of this directory. Depending on the size of the directory, this could take a few minutes.

Workspace Visibility

Who can see workspace contents depends on the plan that account is subscribed to.

Team & Indie Plans

On the Team and Indie plans, all workspaces in an account are shared. This means that all account members belong to all workspaces.

Enterprise Plan

On the Enterprise plan, all workspaces are private by default. Any non-admin account member must be added to the workspace in order to see it.

There are no public mudstack workspaces— you must log in and have access to the account and workspace in order to see it.
