Overview of the Data workspace
With the Data workspace, you can easily visualize and manage business data for the site with tables, forms, and lists. All the data and changes are stored in Microsoft Dataverse. You can create and edit tables for the site, and create new (or edit existing) model-driven forms and views.
Makers can create basic forms, advanced forms, and lists by using forms and views created in the Data workspace.
Data workspace left pane settings feature allows you to select any unmanaged solution where changes made in Data workspace get added. Newly created table, column, forms, and views will get added to the selected solution. Newly created tables and columns will get the prefix of the selected solution's publisher. By default, all changes are saved in the Common Data Services Default Solution. To change this setting, choose the dropdown and select any unmanaged solution in the environment.
For more information, go to Solution concepts.
On the Data workspace left pane, Tables in this site contextually displays all tables being used in the site. Other tables displays Dataverse tables in the environment and the tables used in basic forms created in the site. You can also create a new table or open an existing one in the table designer to add new columns and rows on the Table data tab.
For more information, go to Create and modify tables using Data Workspace.
Views are a subset of table data. Create a view to select specific table columns and rows that you want to display in a site. The Views tab displays views being used in the site lists and all other views in the environment associated with the respective table. It only shows view types that are supported in portals. Selecting an existing view (or creating a new one) opens the Power Apps view designer, where you can define the view. Views are a foundation of the list component that can be added to pages.
For more information, go to Create and modify views by using the Data workspace.
The Forms tab displays the forms being used in the basic forms used in the site and all other forms in the environment associated with the respective table. It only shows the main form type that's supported in portals. Selecting an existing form (or creating a new one) opens the Power Apps form designer, where you can add form fields, components, and much more. The form designer only provides features and properties that are supported in portals. To access all form features, go to the Power Apps form designer from the command bar.
