Workspace Console Admins can now access the Workspace Console, which provides them with an aggregate view of data across all connected Workspaces. To start, they can view and manage users across Workspaces. By default, the primary admin has been added as the first user to the Workspace Console. This person has permission to add additional users to the Workspace Console
