I am a little confused by what you mean with "workspaces". I assume you 
mean users with different logins. I am not sure about Windows, but on 
Linux each user can use the software that has been installed using the 
system software management tools (e.g. apt-get in Linux). Subsurface 
runs independently for each user, including user-specific preferences 
with no visibility of the dive logs of other users. For admin to access 
the logs of users, root-level access rights can be given (just talk to 
you sys admin) or, alternatively, admin can access the cloud copies of 
the different dive logs if he/she knows the user names & passwords.

Kind regards,
