MURAL uses a certain account structure to help collaborators stay organized and make sure the right people have access to the right content. (Collaborator is our general term for members, visitors, and guests to your mural.) At a high level, the MURAL organizational structure has workspaces, rooms, folders, and murals.
MURAL accounts explained
The exact structure of your account depends on which MURAL plan you have. There are 4 plans:
Free - Up to 5 murals and unlimited members; only open rooms (no private rooms)
Team+ - All Free features, plus: unlimited murals in your workspace; privacy controls for rooms and murals
Business - All Team+ features, plus: unlimited guests; privacy controls for rooms and murals
Enterprise - All Business features, plus: multiple workspaces; enhanced privacy; the option for confidential rooms

MURAL organizational structure
MURAL lets you organize your content on the following levels:
Think of your workspace as a virtual office building. Anyone using MURAL can be part of multiple workspaces, and a workspace can contain multiple rooms and murals.
Enterprise customers can create and manage multiple workspaces. Other plans are limited to one workspace.
Rooms are an efficient way of organizing murals for different projects. Each room can contain several folders and murals.
Rooms are either open, private, or confidential:
Folders encourage more granular organization of murals within rooms. Add murals to folders or nest folders within folders to create a structure that works for your team.
Free plans don't have access to folders.
A mural (lowercase) is where you can collaborate on an individual canvas to add, create, and edit your content.

Free plan account structure
With MURAL's Free plan, you start with the basics: a workspace, rooms, and murals. Here are the limitations of this plan's structure:
You can only have 5 active murals at a time.
Your rooms can only be open (available to everyone in the workspace).
You don’t have access to folders.
Team+ and Business account structure
The same basic structure applies to Team+ and Business accounts, but you have a bit more freedom:
You can have an unlimited number of murals.
You can have private rooms.
All rooms can have folders.
Here is a visual representation of MURAL’s account structure for the Team+ and Business plans:
Note: Private rooms are only available on our Team+, Business, and Enterprise plans.

Our Enterprise plan allows for even greater flexibility, a larger user base, and a deeper structure. If you are an Enterprise customer:
You can create and manage multiple workspaces.
You can have confidential rooms for an added layer of privacy.
