The workspaces in PubMan serve as a kind of role specific desktop. Dependant on the role you have in the system you will have either a depositor workspace (my items) or a quality assurance workspace (QA workspace), where you can find „your items“.
Where as in the depositor workspace (my items) you find all items, that have been created by you, you will find in the QA workspace all items you are responsible for as moderator. Please have a look at one or both films in order to get an idea on the advantages and usage of a workspace.
