Workspaces provide an overview of activities that a user performs in Dynamics 365 Finance and Supply Chain Management on a routine basis. They are centralized collections of system information based around specific topics. There are many out of the box workspaces that are delivered with Dynamics 365 that can be modified and added to but there are times when you want your very own workspace with your own odd assortment of views, tables, reports, and queries. We all have our own ways of working or the odd things that we track and by having a personal workspace we can best optimize data and our work goals.
It is easy to create new workspaces. They are handled like personalization so you can only do it for yourself. If you want to share them, they are easy to export and for another user to import.
