Here's a few suggestions for improved usability to the Dashboard view. Apologies if these have been mentioned elsewhere. Persistent Workspace sort order This should have been a no-brainer, but why isn't the workspace sort order persistent over a session, or even permanently persist per user? For example, I may want to sort my workspaces by settlement date by clicking the heading, but if I go into any workspace and come back out to the dashboard, the workspace order defaults back to 'most recently used'. Similarly, I may want to just sort by workspace reference or some other column at different times. The sort order should persist so that if I'm going in and out of multiple workspaces, I shouldn't have to waste clicks to re-sort, and possible go to other pages just to go to a workspace that was previously the next line down. Using MRU as the default sort order may be an acceptable compromise to begin with, but we should at least have the choice to customise the view to make it more efficient for whatever we are doing without it defaulting back every time. On a side note, there also appears to be a glitch in this system as I went through about two dozen workspaces the other day and the MRU was all over the place, not necessarily appearing at the top of the list, but somewhere down the middle. I'm happy to discuss this somewhere else. Customisable columns I realise this request has been made before, and been rejected on the basis of trying to keep the interface relatively uncluttered. However, again it should really be a customisable option. For example, those practitioners who would practice exclusively in a single jurisdiction may find that particular column redundant. This may open up space for other columns such as 'workgroup', 'other side', 'incoming mortgagee/mortgagee on title', etc., which may be more useful. I'm sure others will come up with requests for other possible columns. If the objective is to avoid information overload, it may be an option to limit the number of columns that can be used at any one time, with possibly the capability to dynamically resize certain columns, such as 'subscriber reference', to reduce unnecessary whitespace. Viewing more workspaces This is an option in Projects, so it shouldn't be so hard to implement in Core. Having a dropdown box or even just simple links at the bottom of the page to change how many workspaces can be seen in the list at once would be remarkably helpful, and reduce the amount of page flipping to find workspaces. Basic '10, 20, 40, 100, All' options would be a good start. Also, where there is pagination of the workspaces list, it may be more useful to show the actual number of pages rather than bury it under an ellipsis, as it makes navigating to pages unnecessarily complicated. It might also be worthwhile moving or duplicating this control to the top of the list, where the 'clear filters' button currently lives, and either moving that button somewhere else, or otherwise hiding it until there is actually a filter being applied. Look forward to seeing these in the next release!

Bump on this request. This will become more and more useful as an increasing volume of workspaces will lead to some being assigned to different staff members. It would also be extremely useful to hide development workspaces created by PEXA Projects from cluttering up the list of regular workspaces.
