Managing access to your map
A bit of vocabulary
Room: A room is a virtual place where users connect together. A room can have entries and exits that lead to other rooms. Rooms are created from maps.
Map: A map is a JSON file describing a virtual universe. This file can be hosted on WorkAdventure servers, but not necessarily. You can actually host a map on any webserver. Two rooms can be based on the same map.
World: Rooms are grouped together using Worlds. Each world can contain one or many rooms. Worlds are a way to organize your rooms together. Also, access is managed at the "World" level: a world contains "members" that can be allowed to access all or some of the rooms.
Organization: Organizations are the top level entity in WorkAdventure. An organization contains one or many worlds. Administrator accounts are tied to organizations.
Most of the time, your organization will contain a single world. Worlds are useful in specific cases, like when you are organizing events.
If you are an event organizer, and if you are organizing many events on WorkAdventure, you can create one world per event.
Each world has its own set of members. In your case, members will be the attendees to your event.
- 1 World = 1 Event
- 1 Member = 1 Attendee
Your world dashboard

You also have access directly to the modal and edit properties of the world.
Your room dashboard
Your dashboard features the list of room, and multiple subtab "Members", "Forums", "Users", "Banned Users", "Reports", "Wokas".
You also have access directly to the modal and edit properties of the room.
When you are editing the room, there are 3 types of rooms:
- Public access: anyone with a link to the room can connect.
- Members only: only members of the world can access your room.
- Members only with tags: only members of the world with a special "tag" can access your room.
Free accounts can only create public rooms.
You can change the room type in the room edition screen.
