Workspaces driving productivity
A workspace is a one-stop shop for a certain activity. Workspaces provide a 360-degree view of an activity so you don’t have to navigate to multiple lists. They can help answer specific questions such as are there any urgent cases that I need to attend to now? Are there any cases that are easy to solve, or are there any trouble cases? Workspaces provide insights so you could compare multiple sources of data, navigate by data and select what you want to act on. These also give you direct access to tasks for enhanced collaboration.
Workflows in business processes
Workflows are available throughout many different areas of the system. They help you manage your business process to route documents for review and approval. In Dynamics 365 for Finance and Operations, the term workflow is defined in two ways – as a system and as a business process. Workflow as a system provides functionality that you can use to create individual workflows or to automate business processes. While workflow as a business process defines how a document flows through the system by displaying who must process and approve it.
