Workspace refers to the common space provided to the users to facilitate complete management of the applications. By default, Zoho Creator displays your(account owner) workspace. Your workspace will list all applications(owned by you, shared with you, shared with your groups) in your account. A user can access your workspace when you share an application with him/her. When the user accesses your workspace from his/her Zoho Creator account, all the applications shared by you with the user will be listed.
Assume you are the Team Lead for Operations in XYZ company. You create a Project Management application in your Zoho Creator account to track all the projects in the pipeline, as well as the nitty-gritty details about the daily work being done to move the projects forward. You're the owner of the application, and it will be listed in your workspace. Let's say you share and provide edit permissions for the application with your Manager. Now, when your Manager accesses your workspace using his Zoho Creator account, the Project Management application that was shared by you will be listed. Your manager can make changes to it as he holds the same privileges as you.
