Creating an Account
Latch offers several SSO options:
To create an account on Latch simply continue with a Google, GitHub, or Microsoft account.
Note: Some Microsoft organization accounts require additional setup to be used. Alternatively non SSO accounts can be administered by request.
Contact the team at Latch at firstname.lastname@example.org for help setting up these.
Every new account starts with a Personal Workspace.
To collaborate with team members on Latch you can create or join a team Workspace.
To join a team look for a team invite email and click the Join Team button and follow the prompts.
Latch Workspace Starting Screen
After you’ve created an account (and optionally joined a team workspace) you can explore your workspace. The left navbar contains tabs to switch between the different aspects of the platform, these are:
Workspace Avatar: Here you can switch workspaces and access a workspace settings.
Latch Registry: Keep track of experiment metadata and files in table interface.
Latch Data: A cloud file system to store experiment files and results.
Latch Workflows: Run analysis workflows through a user-friendly interface.
Latch Pods: Run downstream analysis through preconfigured apps and notebooks.
Help Button: Find help resources and contact Latch support
The Help Menu has a list of resources (this Wiki included) and also allows you to easily contact the Latch team through Intercom chat. Our Intercom is always answered by a real person and we always try to answer quickly but for best results contact during Pacific Time US business hours.
Note: the “Eyesore Help Button Mode” changes the style of the help button to something more muted. An engineer added it because he thought the darker button was an eyesore.
