Question: What's a workspace?

- J.D. Meier, Jason Taylor, Alex Mackman, Prashant Bansode


A workspace is a client-side copy of the files and folders on the TFS version control server. Local pending changes are isolated within your workspace until you check these changes into the server as an atomic unit (referred to as a changeset). A single workspace can contain references to multiple team projects. You can use multiple workspaces to isolate files or versions for your use only.

Note: Workspaces are created per machine, per user account. Therefore, you can have different workspace definitions for each computer you use. Also, you can have multiple workspaces on a single computer by using multiple user accounts to log onto the computer.
