Create multiple apps from same workspace infect from same Dataset without replicating the dataset multiple times. only option we have now is to update the app and only one app per workspace can be created which a kind of restrict the workspace usability. If we can create multiple apps share it with different users without creating multiple workspace ... means same dataset no dataset replication, will save the storage as well.

May 2024 update: We are working on creating a separate app as an artifact which will release in the coming months. thank you all for the feedback.
March 2022 update: we plan to have a private preview soon and hopefully release to the public in July

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This would be really useful, with one app per workspace I may as well just give my users access to the workspace

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This would make it a bit easier to publish to large amounts of users. We would like few workspaces with few content-creators, but many different groups have access to many different apps.

We definitely need this

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

The current design is not supportable long term. The complexity of having a 1:1 ratio of apps to workspaces cannot be support in a large organization.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

Definitely a feature which would help us by eliminating multiple workspace

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This is a good feature but I would think that allowing app workspaces to be published with different RLS would work the same way/ if not better

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

Same issue here - we have a single data model / workspace used to create a wide variety of different reports which serve different purposes with different audiences. The 1:1 workspace - app relationship is going to make this quite time consuming to manage.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This is definitely a worthwhile bit of functionality that would bridge the gap between the old concept of "Workgroups", Content Packs, and Apps.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

Multiple Apps per App Workspace, where content is tailored to each App recipients' needs. App Workspace is still subject or department specific, but access to content still needs controlling.

RE: Create multiple apps from same workspace

This method would be a better way to handle of security in terms of apps if you could pick and choose what is represented in each app, it also drives re-usability of reports since we would have to make a one-off App workspace and a one off app with similar content to ensure appropriate content is provided to the appropriate defined roles.
