2. Creating your wiki space
The York Wiki Service is divided into 'wiki spaces'. Any member of staff can set up a wiki space for themselves or their teams. To get started, from the Dashboard log in with your University username and password.
To create a wiki space, click on Create a space. Think of a name for your wiki space (eg 'Building Refurbishment Project') and type it into the Space name box. You'll find that Confluence automatically suggests a Space key shortcut (this forms part of the URL and you can change this now to something more meaningful if you wish, but you can't change it later). Tick the Make this space private box if you wish to restrict access to yourself whilst you are creating the pages - you can alter the permissions later (see below). If you don't tick this box, all wiki users will be able to view your pages. Click Create.
You're now ready to start adding content to your wiki space, although at some point you should think about setting permissions.
