Enable and Manage Workspace Requests

Use Requests to capture ideas for new workspaces executed in Projectplace. Requests can be placed by everyone within and outside the organization, regardless of whether they are Projectplace users or not. Workspaces can easily be created based on a request. 

Administration of requests is performed by the account administrator.
