The Dock, Workspaces and Apps

What is a workspace? - Our workspaces are a set of core features that always stay updated in the background, regardless of where you are working in comm.land.
Current workspaces are as follows:
What is an app? - This is everything else! The apps that you know and love already can live right in comm.land.
Note: Currently only 3 Applications can be used in comm.land - More will be coming, along with App Marketplace
Current Apps Available are as follows:
Accessing all your Apps and Workspaces - Simply hit the Dock Menu Button in the bottom left corner, and you will see 2 tabs – one for your Workspaces and another for your Apps.
Customizing your dock - You can customize your dock by pinning different Apps and Workspaces. You can pin up to 4 Workspaces and 4 Apps to your dock. There is also space for a 5th Workspace and App, which will be the last used Workspace/App that is not pinned.
Phone Workspace (with Webphone)
By default the Phone Workspace will open with the Call History tab selected, you can select to view Call History, Voicemail, or Parked Calls to the right of the webphone in your Phone Workspace.
If enabled, the webphone sits to the left of your chosen call data. Within the webphone, you can “pop-out” the phone to move around your screen or take out of your Phone Workspace.
When you have your webphone as a new window, you will have the option to pin your phone back to the Workspace. This is helpful should you lose that new window. The webphone is always available in all App and Workspace pages via the “Phone” icon in the top right.
Using the Webphone
Simply enter a name (internal), number, or extension. If you enter at least 3 Characters, you will see a search for a user within your office! Click on the user, their information will auto-fill, then you can hit the dial pad to call.
Selecting the gear icon, you will see your microphone, speaker and camera settings. You can leave it set as “Default” and it will auto-select your computer's default speaker and microphone. You can also select away from the default, which will stay present until device is disconnected.
While in a call, you can open the dialpad, mute yourself, place the call on hold, park the call, transfer, start video or start a screenshare.
