You mention compliance with cybersecurity standards. What does this mean?
Cybersecurity is a core element of overall organizational security. Cybersecurity standards are constantly evolving to address volatile threats. They vary by industry and country. Menawat™ Teams is designed for compliance with NIST 800-171 and other cybersecurity standards. All U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) contractors that process, store or transmit Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) must meet […]
Why do some people not see the same on-screen buttons?
Buttons appear or are hidden depending on your role in a workspace. For example, Edit and Delete buttons are visible for workspace managers, but not for others.
Do sub-workplaces automatically inherit access right from their parent, like, say a Windows folder would?

I have a parent workspace with 5 sub-workspaces. Are the members of the parent team automatically members of the sub-teams?
No. Workspaces are logically isolated from each other as required by cybersecurity standards. Thus, you must configure membership for each workspace individually. This forces managers to make a conscious decision on membership.
What is a license connector?
A connector is a one-way software subscription that allows two organizations to collaborate directly with each other. Both organizations must agree to establish collaborative ties. Each then configures the external connection from the other organization, including naming authorized users. Both organizations maintain full control over their information and data at all times.
How do I control who has access to what information?
Use team workspaces to segment information and control who has access to it. Workspaces are completely isolated from each other, regardless of where they are in the hierarchy. We call this logical isolation. You only know that a team exists if you created it or are a member in someone else’s team.
How can I add someone from an external organization into my workspace?
There are two ways to securely add someone outside of your organization into your workspace. First, your organization can provide them with a user subscription on your license. Second, if the other organization has its own subscription to Menawat™ Teams, both organizations can link their licenses with a connector. In both instances, only the Manager […]
