What is the proposed idea/solution?


From the Admin panel, to have an option that disabled everyone that is not an admin from creating new Workspaces.
How does is solve the user problems?

The issue is that users in our organization create new workspaces, and this turns them into Owners automatically. Then, they are enabled to share access and provision higher licenses to other users, changing our billing.

We have documented this issue internally, but our company has hundreds of users on Airtable. Employees join and leave the organization every month, meaning that it becomes unviable to rely merely on internal training. The tool needs to enable admins to protect the billing cycle.

How was this validated?

We see the issue every other month.

Who is the target audience?

+1 for this. Product managers need to be able to restrict workspace additions to enterprise plans to manage costs. These are the folks who will take Airtable with them to other companies and the current model potentially puts them in a tough spot.

Definitely. I am fine with my users creating bases, but they should not be able to create workspaces. Data governance and cost control are key when you are dealing in an enterprise situation.

Agree, this creates a problem for data governance and egress.

+1 for this. I've discovered a new workspace (on a paid plan) which a user created. I'm new to Airtable. This is a huge showstopper!
