Workspaces are ways to filter your sets of Drafts, which are still ‘foldered’ into Inbox, Flagged, Archive and Trash. They also set some display options for listing drafts.
- Drafts that are flagged will show up under flagged.
- Drafts that are archived (including flagged) will show up under archived.
- Drafts that are trashed will show up under trash.
- Drafts that are neither trashed nor archived show up under inbox; flagged ones may too, depending upon your workspace settings.
To me, inbox, archive and trash are like statuses, and flagged is more a modifier.
Hopefully that explains things, but reading the thread, there seem to be several questions, including to something the workspace widget doesn’t do.
Screenshots and examples always help when describing issues, so if something isn’t covered, please consider including something like the above to help describe it.
