To streamline the process of working on a workshared project, you can use the status bar. The Worksets button and the Active Workset drop-down provide the same functions as the corresponding tools on the Collaborate tabWorksets panel. The status bar always displays the active workset, and it provides one-click access to the Worksets dialog.
The Worksets button and drop-down list and the Editing Requests icon display in the status bar by default. If they are turned off, turn them on by clicking View tabWindows panelUser Interface drop-downStatus Bar - Worksets.
