App workspaces vs group workspaces, what is the difference?

What is the difference between app workspaces and group workspaces? On the website it says " There’s a one-to-one relationship between the app and contents of the app workspace. Everything in the app workspace will be in the app when you distribute it" and thats pretty much all it says on the matter. I don't really get what that means nor the diference between the two workspaces

Re: App workspaces vs group workspaces, what is the difference?

@xbrenes New naming convention. Group Workspace = App Workspace. App Workspace is the new name, and it also extends itself in a new way by allowing you to publish the workspace as an App. That functionality is meant to phase out Content Packs. So in essence, you can use an App Workspace to consolidate and share to a wide audience by sharing dashboards. Or, you can share the entirety of the workspace in the form of an App.

Re: App workspaces vs group workspaces, what is the difference?

HI @xbrenes,

 

You can take a look at officiate document to know more about app workspace:

 

How are app workspaces different from group workspaces?

With this release, we have renamed all group workspaces to app workspaces. You can publish an app from any of these workspaces. The functionality remains on par with group workspaces for the most part. Over the next few months, we plan on the following enhancements to app workspaces:

  • Creating app workspaces won't create corresponding entities in Office 365 like group workspaces do. So you can create any number of app workspaces without worrying about different Office 365 groups being created behind the scenes (you can still use an Office 365 group’s OneDrive for Business to store your files).
  • Today you can add only individuals to the members and admin lists. Soon you'll be able to add multiple AD security groups or modern groups to these lists to allow for easier management.

The app workspaces don’t seem to work with Microsoft teams when you try to embed a report. Do they plan on fixing this?
