Switching Workspaces

You switch workspaces when you want to use another workspace, such as one with predefined functionality.

Show More

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.

WebStation uses cookies to remember your workspace when you log off. When you log on again, you get the workspace you used when you logged off. If you clear your web browser, you will regain the default workspace.

Some objects have specific views in WorkStation and WebStation:

  • Alarms

  • Documents

  • Graphics (TGML)

  • Events

  • Trend Charts

  • Trend Log Lists

  • Schedules

  • Calendars

  • Watch

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 .

Favorite Pages

You can add pages that you often visit as favorite pages. This makes the favorite pages more accessible.
