Workspace Showing Twice Within Task

This article was created in response to a support issue logged with K2. The content may include typographical errors and may be revised at any time without notice. This article is not considered official documentation for K2 software and is provided "as is" with no warranties.


When you have an application that has a form, within that form you have a "Navigate to URL" action option which correlates to a button being clicked to redirect a user to their own Workspace. This happens to open up another instance of Workspace in the same window pane when in theory this should open one Workspace UI instead of 2. Using "Open in a New Window" is not an option. 


No errors appear, but you are faced with two identical Workspace UIs in the same page, instead of one.

Troubleshooting Steps

There is a workaround for this issue. On the form  insert a data label and add the following as an expression:

<a href="#" onclick="top.window.location.href='URL';">Click</a> 

Check this within the properties section and make sure the Literal option is checked.

On completion, you should be able to open Workspace within the same User interface pane if a user task is opened.
