Hierarchical workspaces

    You can just use a consistent naming convention in order to achieve this.  One of our clients has about 400 workspaces and all easily ‘finadable’ through using a standard approach to how they are named.

    Agreed...  and this is what we do.  However many people find it easier to explore the available workspaces in a visual tree-link interface.  At the moment, your only two options are:

    • searching for a word in the workspace title (which may not necessarily be known)
    • scrolling through a flat list of workspaces, hoping one will grab your attention as to what you're looking for

    ...which gets increasingly unpalatable the more workspaces there are.

    Which looks easier to navigate - this:

    Acme Internal
     \_General
     \_Sites
         \_Site A
         \_Site B
         \_Site C
         \_Site D
    Projects
     \_Client A
     \_Client B
         \_Project C
             \_External

    ...or this..?

    Acme Internal - General
    Acme Internal - Sites - Site A
    Acme Internal - Sites - Site B
    Acme Internal - Sites - Site C
    Acme Internal - Sites - Site D
    Projects - Client A - Project A - External
    Projects - Client A - Project A - Internal
    Projects - Client A - Project B - External
    Projects - Client A - Project B - Internal
    Projects - Client A - Project C - External
    Projects - Client A - Project C - Internal
    Projects - Client A - Project D - External
