The Runtime Environment:
  • Makes it easy for you to view, complete, reassign, and delegate tasks

The design-time environment is also called Composer, and the runtime environment is also called the Workspace. The terms design time and Composer, and runtime and Workspace are used interchangeably throughout this guide.
