Digital collaboration for human-centered initiatives

Hit the ground running with Howspace’s drag-and-drop building blocks.

Start by building a workspace


Noiseless space

Create a dedicated workspace for your process and development initiatives. Cut out the noise so that participants can trust that they’re in the right place, with the right people, focusing only on what's most important. You can create or hide different pages to avoid distractions, guide journeys, categorize items, or separate different user groups.


Simple to use

Workspaces are simple to build and intuitive to use. Just drag and drop widgets in a workspace to create chats, polls, assignments, videos, meeting bookings, and much more. Participants can jump in right away—no training, installation, or logins required. Think of it like building a custom website for your program, without any complicated coding.


Flexible and scalable

Howspace is a responsive, browser-based software that can be accessed from any device with internet. The versatile features make it flexible and customizable. You can easily duplicate workspaces and there is no limit to the number of users or workspaces, which makes Howspace highly scalable.



Howspace is GDPR compliant. We value your security and store all Howspace workspaces in secure data centers on dedicated servers. Rest assured that your data is secure, and can only be accessed with secure links emailed directly to users that you give access to.

Communicate, Engage, and Activate

Co-create & collaborate

With Howspace, you can involve a limitless amount of participants, regardless of time and location. This makes it easy for everyone to collaborate and be heard. Our clients typically see unprecedented participation rates between 80-95%, based on the strong involvement features and one-click access.

Facilitate the process

Howspace goes beyond instant messaging, and gives facilitators the power to actually guide a dialogue. Administrators can automate reminders based on behaviors and provide specific guidance to keep participants engaged. You can also email directly from Howspace in case you need to nudge users who haven’t provided input.

Provide transparency

Howspace enables you to create different types of iterative dialogue where you can easily measure engagement. The social media-like design lets you vote, like, or give points to items. This helps to prioritize ideas and makes it easy to keep participants activated, while making decisions transparent.

Make sense of large-scale dialogue with AI

At the core of Howspace AI is a state-of-the-art, deep learning model that is capable of highly sophisticated natural language processing.

Theme clustering

The AI theme clustering feature lets you zoom in on important themes. It quickly divides a dialogue into meaningful categories, which are not only based on actual words but also larger themes it detects through natural language processing. These clusters, in turn, are a great starting point for deeper analysis and discussions.


It’s not uncommon to end up with dozens, if not thousands of comments and qualitative data. The AI summary feature can quickly summarize those comments into a few sentences or paragraphs, depending on your needs. This is great for providing progress updates or inspiring a company mission statement.

Word cloud

The intelligent word cloud feature recognizes conjugated forms, word types, and even combines word pairs. This helps you quickly visualize which words, concepts, and themes have dominated a conversation. The words are shown in different sizes in relation to how often they have been mentioned. You can click a word to filter out all comments containing that word.

Sentiment analysis

The AI sentiment analysis feature helps you understand what kind of sentiments arise in the discussion. This feature recognizes comments with appreciation and concern. This can help to determine what is working and on the flipside, what topics people are concerned about, in order to identify areas of improvement.

Howspace includes a set of ready-made widgets that you can easily
drag-and-drop into your workspace.


Howspace’s AI-powered chat widget is the heart of Howspace, and a powerful dialogue tool. It is not a free-for-all instant messenger. Instead the facilitator-rooted widget, gives administrators the power to actually guide a discussion. This is especially helpful with reflection, setting goals, monitoring progress, peer review/support, teamwork, mentoring, and much more.

Almost any facilitation method, such as a SWOT analysis, can be built with Howspace’s chat widget.



Share images, videos, PDF, or any other file types. Howspace also allows you to embed third-party websites and tools.


Assignments & Exams

The assignment and exam widgets let you create custom activities for participants to gauge comprehension and progress.



Quickly gather feedback and make decisions utilizing the poll widget. Polls provide an instant visual representation of opinions.


Checkpoint & Pulse

The checkpoint widget is used for check-in questions and to provide guidance. The pulse widget is for creating scalable questions where you can collect answers over time.


Booking & Timer

The booking widget is useful for booking group activities or 1-2-1 sessions. The timer widget can be used to show how much time is left or as a countdown.



The people widget helps to visualize a group of people and creates a sense of community. Profiles can be used to provide recommendations for other people to connect with.


Video Meetings within your Workspace

With the Howspace Live feature, anyone in your workforce can participate in video chats that’ll appear directly in your workspace. You can have an unlimited number of video chats per page, so feel free to have breakout sessions, sidebar brainstorming sessions, and informal chats no matter where your team is in the world. Administrators can record any session, and you can have a total of 200 participants in the call, out of which 24 can participate with video.
