FAQs and Common Questions

This guide is intended to help you understand Plexie. From getting started to upgrading your plan we’ll help you get started.

FAQ

Workspace
A workspace is where you’ll store your Plexies and manage content. Your workspace is your personal hub, private and controlled by you. Invite others in or keep it as your personal space – Each Plexie workspace offers a Personal Plexie and a Team Plexie.

Plexie
A Plexie belongs to a workspace and consists of your team collaboration, content, and project management. Create a Plexie with a blank content canvas, with Smart Tables, or with built-in templates. Plexie pages feature a familiar “page builder” layout similar to popular website page builders. 

Cards
Content and files added to a Plexie is made using Cards. 

Content Management
Create immersive, engaging experiences, and manage content in one place for teams with Plexie’s collaboration tools and features. Plexie offers easy-to-use free templates that fit your brand for a clean, professional start and they’re mobile-friendly. 

Plexie allows you to create and manage content in one place. Plexie also offers pre-built templates.

Team Collaboration
Made for teams, Plexie allows multiple users to work together in the same workspace making everyone more confident and getting more done. The free version allows up to three users, whereas the PRO plan gives users ability to add their whole team to a single workspace. 

Project Management
Coordinate projects, manage content, and develop strategies with ease using Smart Tables.

Your data is private. You can keep content private or invite others into your workspace and collaborate with your team. 

Plexie was built with security in mind. All data is encrypted both in transit and at rest. Session management uses encrypted secure keys and our platform employs continuous active threat monitoring.

You can easily add pictures to your Plexies using whatever method is most convenient for you. Detailed examples can be on our support page How to Add Media to Plexies:

  • Copy and paste or drag-and-drop from another application
  • Select a file from your computer by clicking the “+” sign in a card and selecting the Insert Media button
  • Copy the image link from a website and paste it into your text

Copy the web address (URL) of a website or a video (such as YouTube or Vimeo) and paste it directly into Plexie. It will embed it with a viewer ready to play the video or view the website.

If you don’t want the viewer embedded just hit Control-Z after you paste the link and the viewer will be replaced with a text link.

Copy the web address (URL) from your browser address bar and simply paste the link into your Plexie. The video will be embedded with a viewer.

You do not need to use YouTube embed code.

The free version allows up to three users, whereas the PRO plan gives users ability to add their whole team to a single workspace, premium templates, and more notable features. Visit the pricing page for full details.

Sharing

There are two basic things to consider:

1. Do you want the user to just view or also be able to edit with you?

2. Do you want the person in your Workspace or do you just want them to view your Plexie from the outside?

This overview of sharing can help guide you to share Plexies with others.

This is most likely because there are no Plexies in the Team Plexies area.

You may have created Plexies in your Personal Plexies area in which case you can move them into the Team Plexies area. 

This overview of sharing can help guide you to share Plexies with others.

Share a public link with users who you want to view  your content but not change it. These users don’t have to be Plexie users. They will see your Plexie as if it were a web page, can view it and see all the pages, but not edit them.

(They also will not be in your workspace nor have access to any other content.)

Yes. You can create additional Workspaces or be invited to join other Workspaces.

To create a new Workspace or switch Workspaces, use the Workspace drop-down in the upper left corner of the home screen.
