Hi there! 👋
We’re thrilled to welcome you to your new virtual office in Kumospace! To ensure you settle in comfortably, here are some tips and best practices for happier and more connected remote teams.
Type the Kumospace URL, e.g. www.kumospace.com/SpaceName, into your browser and you'll land on the Joining page. Before entering, you are able to enter a name of your choosing. Click the text field under Name: to type in a name.
You'll then be prompted to give camera, microphone and recording permissions when joining for the first time. You can then select your camera, microphone, and speakers and click Join.
Once you have joined the Space, select a Floor icon to join.
After you have entered a Floor, you can begin exploring! Use the arrow keys on your keyboard or click with your mouse to move around the space.
Other navigation tools include opening the Map to view the entire Floor, zooming in and out to change your field of view, and exiting back to the Lobby.

The beauty of having a virtual office is that you can have face-to-face conversations with your teammates at any moment.
In Kumospace, people can hear each other within their audio circles using Spatial Audio, and in Rooms using Room Audio. This allows multiple conversations in the same space, without breakout rooms.
When inside of a room, you can close the Door for more privacy by clicking on it. This will disable your team members from outside of the room from hearing you or seeing your video and screen-share window.
To enter a room with a closed door, click on the door from the outside to "knock" and be let in.
The Present feature allows for day-to-day collaboration and “over the shoulder” visual learning. Click the Present button on the bottom bar to share your screen to the users in your audio range.
Link your ongoing projects, e.g. Roadmap, Figma, PRDs, etc., on Custom Link Tablets. Place the tablets in your office or conference rooms so that your team can refer to them as needed and edit straight from your Kumospace.
Kumospace welcomes all work styles. Hold meetings inside Conference rooms, co-work with your team in a Common Area, or enter a Room for non disruptive work environment.
Offices have private audio zones that provide a quieter place for more intimate meetings and ‘heads-down’ work. You can also close the Door 🚪to signal you don’t wish to be interrupted.
Conference Rooms are private rooms for teams to discuss issues, collaborate on projects, and make decisions. Gather in a Conference Room to hold conference calls, board meetings, or formal discussions.
💡Pro Tip: Remember to close the Door for confidential meetings. This will prohibit users outside of the Conference Room from viewing your video, screen-share window, or hearing your audio.
Common areas in Kumospace are designed for the more social parts of work - the serendipitous run-ins and casual ☕️ chats that often lead to organic collaboration. This is great for checking in with other team members, brainstorming, and aligning on projects.
In order to do your best work, you need an office tailored to your team. Whether that is a traditional work space, a comfy lounge, or a backyard campfire, create an office to help you be your most productive self! The options are truly limitless…Explore the Furniture tab in the Edit menu and customize your workstation.
Consider recreating elements from your real-life office for a touch of nostalgia, or let your imagination run wild and come up with something totally unique – it’s okay to get silly.
💡 Pro tip: You can import custom images like your company logo. Here’s an article on importing and resizing custom images.
