Dear Team,

I have created a Workspace at powerbi.com and added members by e-mail. But when one of the members tries to upload, they cannot see the Workspace. I would like all the members that I have added by e-mail to be able to upload files to the Workspace.

More Detail:
1) In powerbi.com on the left in the Workspace area I have clicked the "Create app Workspace" button.
2) I named the Workspace
3) For Available I selected "Public - anyone can see what's inside" and "Members can edit Power BI Content"
4) In "Add workspace members", I have added multiple e-mails for people I wanted to add as members
5) Click Save
6) Then when I had one of the members try to publish a File.pbix file to the Workspace, they cannot see the Workplace. This person who tried to upload does have a powerbi.com account.

How do I fix this? Or, what is the correct way to create a Workspace, then add members, then allow them to upload to the Workspace?

I have tried this a number of times, but each time it fails. I am sort of disappointed that this seems to be so hard.

One last question, once I create a Workspace, how do I delete it? I tried deleting some of the failed attempts at creating a workspace where members can upload, but I could not find the option to delete the Workspace.

Sincerely, Mike Girvin

Hi Mike. Are you using the new preview workspace format (v2)? This will be GA in a few weeks. Have you tried adding people as contributors? I think that will fix it.

Thanks for replying Matt!!! I do not think that I am using the new preview. How do I add people as contributors?

I think the process is the same for V1 and V2.
Click on Workspaces > to expand menu
find the workspace, click on the ellipsis ...
Workspace access
you can add new users or change user access from there
