Create a Workspace

The workspace, also known as a project, is where you organize, analyze and present data. Before you load any data from any source (data warehouse, CSV) into GoodData, you must create a workspace.

Each workspace should correspond to a specific set of unique data. For example, if you have four sets of data from four different customers that you plan to create analytics for, you should create a workspace that corresponds to each customer.
