    Hi Mattias—good news! We already have that option under the View > Launch at Login setting in both mac and windows desktop apps.

    Is that option working for you? I am on Windows, and it does launch Watson Workspace - but the whole application stays white, and nothing get´s properly loaded. I need to re-launch it manually.

    I have not rebooted for a while, but I will pay attention on how it behave when i restart, if you reload the page (ctrl+r) does that work or do you need to close it and restart it?

    I can confirm, Ctrl+r does work. Any idea on what could go wrong with the initial load on startup?

    Hi Nadine, sorry you're seeing these issues! - are you seeing this everytime your pc starts up? Which OS are you using? And does it ever happen when you load Workspace in a browser (the white screen)?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Ethan,

    I see it everytime my laptop starts (which is every day). I do not see it in the browser, or when I start Watson Workspace manually (but who would want to do that).

    It makes no difference, whether I use the "Launch at login" option in Watson Workspace, or when I have it started through Windows Autostart.

    I am on Windows 7. Feel free to reach out, as I am IBM.
