Service Manager


About Workspaces

A workspace is a module in Service Manager. Each workspace has different capabilities and is used for performing different functions.

Your workspace is set up with your role in mind, each role has a defined workspace. Workspaces display forms and dashboards for the modules and are specific to the different user roles.

If a module is the key process for your role, that module appears when you log in to the application. If you have access to multiple roles, you have the option to select the role in which to work when you log in.

You might see a different view of the same module if you log in with different roles because your permissions to perform certain tasks are role-based. For example, if you are a Service Desk Analyst, although you have access to the change module, you will not see or have access to all the functionalities that is available to the Change Manager.

Only users with Administrator role can add a workspace to a role.
