    For a published enterprise project, you can use the Project Workspace to collaborate with your team members and executives to manage risks, issues, documents, and deliverables associated with the project.  Because the Project Workspace is created using the SharePoint software, you also get additional functionality from SharePoint such as tasks, calendars, discussions, surveys, etc.  If you do not have a Project Workspace for your project, you cannot use any of the functionality I have just described. Hope this helps.

  • Hi,

    I can't find any links or articles that explain what Project Workspaces are used for but this link might give you an idea:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc197420(office.12).aspx

    Basically Project Workspaces are used to collaborate data for the associated Project, usually each project has its own project workspace. The Project Workspaces consist of lists for logging project related data such as Risks and Issues and a document library for the project documents.

    Hope that helps
