Understanding your workspace functionality

Each web accessible workspace has the following functionality, access to which is dependent on your role and access privileges – see the role-based access control section for more information.

Users can:

  • View a list of the workspaces of which they are members.
  • View the activity stream for each workspace.
  • Add insights, notes and tags within a workspace, with the option of notifying other users.
  • Access files and shared scripts.
  • Install packages into an R console session from a managed repository of libraries.
  • Edit their profile (including contact details, description and profile image) and change their password.
  • Run SQL queries on workspace data and view results.
  • Access a ‘quick’ visualisation feature to create histograms, frequency tables, heat maps, time series plots and box plots.
  • Search functions across data and files.


  • Can be customised by adding/removing logos and adding a description.
  • Support a built-in R console for interactive analysis.
  • Have a file editor (SQL, R, RNW & text).
  • Have report edit, creation and download capability.
  • Allow resource tagging of workspaces, data and files.
  • Support a mini-apps visualisation and development environment.
  • Support a dedicated R server configured according to specific memory and compute requirements for use with the R console.
