Participants are presented with a worklist displaying tasks that have been assigned to them, giving them the ability to manage their worklists and complete their tasks.

The K2 Workspace provides powerful reporting features, allowing for the creation of reports through a simple wizard process. Reports created on the K2 Workspace can be published to Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services and be edited using any Report Definition Language (RDL)–compliant tools.
