The Taverna Workbench provides a number of views, called perspectives. Perspectives are collections of panels which enable users to perform tasks associated with different stages of the workflow lifecycle.

Currently, three are three perspectives available in the Workbench that can be used to build workflows, browse the results produced by workflows and to search for useful workflows stored in myExperiment. The forth perspective, the BioCatalogue Perspective, is available as a plugin and is not currently described in this Manual.
