What is a workspace?

It just means working space to get your daily job done😎. Lets just consider Alicia who is working at Hogwarts Consulting as a HR Operations specialist. Her daily job is to manage personnel information and support the HR team with the employee lifecycle management. When she comes into work in the morning and logs into Dynamics 365 Human Resources – she can open “Personnel Management” workspace to manage personnel (lets not debate why it is not called employee management😋)

In essence the vast application capability is organized in a simplified and easy to access way called “Workspaces” which is a collection of related to quick information tabs, Analytics and navigation links related to that part of the job.
