Tables vs workspaces


Tables are containers for a list of structured data. Each table has an ordered list of rows, which contain all the data. Tables also have a set of columns, which define the table “schema” and enforce data type/format and relationships on the row data.


Workspaces are a way to group tables together, and opening a workspace opens its tables in a tabbed view. Tables can be in more than one workspace, and tables can also exist as standalone items without a workspace.

Workspaces act similar to folders, whereas tables are like files within a folder.


Views are a way to define a customized view of a table’s data. Views are part of a table and you can configure and save multiple views of a table, which can have different layouts, groupings, and filters/sorts applied.
