The idea behind Workspaces is to provide an easy way to start controlling a layout without bothering about the Rocrail server.
For many novice users the Client/Server concept of Rocrail is experienced as a barrier to even try the software. Workspaces could lower that barrier in a positive way.
Workspaces can only be used if both Rocview and the Rocrail server will run on the same computer. Rocview will try to start the server and this is only possible on the same computer.
A Workspace is a directory containing all files needed by the Rocrail server to control a layout:
