I know Workspace is coming, but I am quite confused about it.
My agency built websites for multiple clients, and we have multiple staff who need access to “Designer”.
Currently, without Workspace, we have to keep the sites with us so that we can handle hosting and access to Designer. (Clients are usually not quite happy about this, as they do not actually “own” their website and they cannot use “Designer”.)
We want to improve this situation!
But with Workspace, it looks like I still cannot add a seat for a client, that this seat will only access a specific folder or specific sites.
Does it mean that I have to build a website with my agency’s own Webflow account ($49/m/seat GROWTH Workspace)… and when it is ready, I transfer it to my client’s Workspace, which my client has to pay $19/m x 2 seats CORE Workspace plan + at least $16/m Hosting fee, so that they can include one of us to continue to build their website???
To be honest, no code is usually not attractive to clients when they have to hire an agency to develop a website for them anyway, but explicit costs are barriers.
As transferring hosted sites will cause quite a long downtime @@ (ah…) We really have to plan ahead.
The client can just have a free Starter workspace to receive the site and then pay for site hosting. Upgrading to a Core workspace and seats are only necessary if the client wants to add you to their workspace for ongoing maintenance or design work.
