Create a workspace

A workspace is an area where rural professionals can coordinate who can work on specific farms. Learn how to create a workspace.

Updated this week


Workspaces enables rural professionals to better serve their Farm Focus customers by seamlessly and easily managing their Farm Focus accounts in a secure, auditable, and trusted way.

Workspaces give rural professionals such as accountancy, bank and farm consultancy businesses direct control over who can access Farm Focus farms within their organisation and to what level. The rural professional creates a workspace. The subscription admin (usually the farm owner) permits their farm to be part of a workspace. (The subscription admin is the person who pays for the Farm Focus subscription and is usually the farm owner.) Access to farms in that workspace is then controlled by the rural professional organisation or more precisely the workspace administrator in the rural professional organisation.
