Workspaces, Applications


A workspace is a team or a project. For example, you might have department-specific Workspaces, such as “IT” and “Administration.”

You could also have a project-specific Workspace that would include people from several departments, such as “Sales Kick-Off” or “Building Construction.”


These Workspaces contain Applications. An application is a collection of items of the same type. There are three types of applications in Comindware Tracker which can hold three types of items:

  • Workflow app which creates and stores workflow tasks processed by a workflow
  • Tasks app which creates and stores different tasks scattered across your team
  • Documents app which creates and stores documents of the same type

In each application you initially configure the view of tasks or docs it contains as well as information that tasks or docs will keep. Each application can have different security settings, different people from various departments, and so on. Here is an example of how Workspaces and Applications fit together:

Departmental Workspace: IT

“Help Desk Requests” App

“Hardware Inventory” App

Departmental Workspace: Administration

“Product Campaigns” App

“Product Reviews” App

Project-Specific Workspace: Sales Kick-off

“Budget Committee” App

“Training Content” App
