The workspace defines the content and layout of WorkStation. The content and layout of the workspace can be adapted different tasks for user accounts or user account groups.
You can create different workspaces for different user categories and link them to user account groups. A user has access to all workspaces linked to the user account groups in which the user is a member. This way, users can easily switch workspaces during a work session. For example, Paul, a member of the Administrators and Janitors user account groups, has access to the Administrator workspace and Janitor workspace.
If a user account or user account group is assigned to more than one workspace, WorkStation asks you to select a default workspace at the first log on. The next time you log on to the EcoStruxure BMS on the same computer, your default workspace is automatically displayed. Once logged in, you can change your default workspace settings.
Some workspace layouts are included in the EcoStruxure Building Operation software and cannot be deleted or edited. Those workspaces are located in the local domain of the EcoStruxure BMS server.
