1) Cloud Functionalities showcase

① Effortless Login for Instant Connectivity


Begin your collaborative journey effortlessly through a user-friendly login, leaving behind complex authentication. Our streamlined process ensures seamless project access, with upcoming support for multiple emails, self-host support and one-click log-in.

② Empowerment through Permissions for Precise Control


Collaboration thrives in an environment of trust and control. At AFFiNE Cloud, we've crafted a robust permission system that empowers document owners to dictate edit and view rights. This level of granularity guarantees that sensitive information remains confidential while facilitating collaboration.

Unleash Creativity with Collaborative Edgeless Mode

We understand that collaboration is a widespread concept, and many applications provide this functionality. Wait, doesn't the idea of being confined to document-based collaboration sometimes feel a bit boring?

Well, at AFFiNE Cloud, it's time to break free from boring stuff and reimagined collaboration beyond the confines of traditional document modes: collaborative whiteboarding - where you can leverage pens, shapes, images and connectors to collaborate with others on a canvas as limitless as your imagination.


Single Page Sharing - Precision Collaboration Made Simple

Yes, we know sharing a specific page without divulging the entirety of your workspace matters a lot to users, so we make it happen.

Here in AFFiNE, no longer will you need to expose unrelated pages – focus on precision collaboration, sharing only what's necessary while keeping the rest securely tucked away.
