Workspace Model

The Workspace Model shows you the mode in which each feature is running, and allows you to change this if necessary. You can also make this change from the relevant node itself.

It is possible to enable specific parts of Workspace Control, and to disable other parts. This makes it possible to implement Workspace Control gradually, which is very practical if Workspace Control is going to be introduced into an existing environment. Each section of the Workspace Control Management Console has an option to enable or disable it. The settings and configurations of a disabled section are not implemented or executed.

For example, a small number of applications can now be configured in Workspace Control, and merged into the existing Start Menu presented to users. If this goes well, a couple more can be added. In this way, the number of applications managed by Workspace Control can be increased gradually over time, in a controlled manner.

You can change a feature's mode directly from the Workspace Model. However, you may prefer to do so from the relevant node itself. There, you can see and amend any related settings, find information about any prerequisites, and access the specific Help about that node (by pressing F1). Diagnostics > Workspace Model Overview shows you at a glance which features are active/enabled, which are disabled, and which are set in learning mode.

If the global settings of features are overridden by exceptions for specific Workspace Containers, the Workspace Model node shows per Workspace Container which settings apply; either the global settings of a feature or the settings of the exception.
