Is it possible to disable invited users creating spaces

I am testing the invite user flow for Cloud, and my new user is forced to create a new space, and also given the option to invite users. Neither of these things I want them to do.

I have the "Existing users can send invites to new users" option off.

Additionally only administrators have the ability to create public spaces. Yet my invited user is required to create a space, and still allowed to send invites.

Is there any way to skip this onboarding process altogether on Cloud? I just want to give them access to the site and nothing more.

Hi Nick,

If I remember correctly, it's not asking them to create a new full space, but a personal space which you should be able to restrict:

In regards to inviting users, unless something changed since December, you are not able to disable this. However, if a user doesn't have the rights to provide access, then approval is needed from an Admin.



Thanks Clark!

The flow does both; first it asks the user to create a personal space, then it asks them to create a public space.

Funny thing is, I disabled non-admins being able to make public spaces, but the flow still asked the user to make one and it just silently didn't create anything. But I got what I wanted to that's all fine.

Thanks for the info!

Thanks for the link @Clark Everson - deleting them was getting tiresome and non of the users coming through the invitation process knew what they were doing or why so they all just sat there empty
