You open an object in a new window to be able to display more objects at the same time or to get a better view.
The workspace in WorkStation and WebStation is the area where you perform all tasks at your site, such as acknowledging alarms and viewing trend logs.
The workspace is made up of different components, such as panes, lists, and views. These components can be configured in a number of different ways. You can hide or display components and create and save your own workspace. You can also reset the workspace layout to the default layout for the user group your user account belongs to.
Some objects have specific views in WorkStation and WebStation:
Trend Log Lists
When you open an object that does not have a specific view, the Properties dialog box for that object is displayed.
Panels are a way to create workspaces that display two or more components in the EcoStruxure Building Operation software, for example graphics, trend charts, trend list and alarm views.
For more information, see Panels .
You can add pages that you often visit as favorite pages. This makes the favorite pages more accessible.
