Sharing a Space/DB among multiple Workspaces?

I am considering how to best use Fibery for multiple departments in a company.

I am concerned that a single Workspace will be too unwieldy and cluttered and difficult to manage/customize for each department.

However, there is definitely some data that needs to be shared across departments (clients DB, users).

Is there a possibility that Fibery could have the ability to share a Space among a number of separate Workspaces?

Or, is there a reasonably intelligent way (if not ACID) to keep DBs changes in sync across multiple Workspaces in near-real time?

Hi, Matt!
We don’t Fibery-to-Fibery sync and are not sure when it will appear
We also have some big customers (like ~600 teammates) - they started working in different workspaces but ended up in a structured one
Permissions + Hidden spaces have to work, and your ability to structure the data and configure Fibery - I’m pretty sure will make a magic :star:

How would this work: if there are 6 Departments in my company, and each one needs “Tasks”, but they must not be allowed access to Tasks from other departments.

This would seem to require a separate Tasks DBs in a separate Space, for each Department.

So I would have to duplicate (x6) all of the work to create and maintain these Tasks DBs, as well as any other DBs that need to be restricted to certain Departments.

Add in lots of scripts (also duplicated x6) and that sounds like a maintenance nightmare.

As long as Fibery Search can show any/all entities, the limitations imposed by views have no value for restricting access by User, so we are left with only Spaces.

I think that Fibery needs to step up its game in the way collaborative technologies are rapidly becoming decentralized now. Fibery is a monolithic app that yes has integrations, but that is the minimum to expect nowadays. The next steps is to become modular and make the community contribute modules for Fibery, as well as to support Fibery to Fibery database connections.

The current topic is about multiple departments using different Fibery Workspaces, but I think we should look ahead and see the tech trends as well as the opportunity of Fibery to align with that, instead of trying to accomodate invididual organizations only.

For the readers here who are interested in that decentralized and networked development, see this related topic where we can continue the talk about that evolution:
