Set Up a Workspace Startup Action Sequence

You can set up Reflection to perform a series of actions when a workspace starts, rather than when a session opens and connects to the host.

This allows you to automate actions that are independent of a session. For example, if you are creating Visual Basic for Application (VBA) macros, you can set up an action sequence that opens the VB Project Editor, the VBA Help, and the VBA Guide when you open a workspace.
