I will be working with several different clients. I have everything saved to a networked configuration using the ConfigurationSetup.cfg:
# If your organization has its own Configuration directory, you can define# _USTN_CUSTOM_CONFIGURATION to that directory path and use it as follows._USTN_CUSTOM_CONFIGURATION = M:/Bentley/ORD/Configuration/
While this does point to the various clients workspaces just fine, I was wondering if I could create custom shortcuts to start ORD pointing to a specific workspace. As in, if you want to work on a Kentucky project, click the red icon, and if you want to work on a Tennessee project, click the green one.
The -ws command line switch is used to define a configuration variable. What variable would I use to define my target workspace?
The -wk command line switch looks as if that would give me more what I am looking for, but that requires the use of the -ww switch to preset a workset. I don't want to preset a workset, just the workspace. The user can choose the proper workset once ORD opens to that point.
Should I just be happy that I have my workspaces available? Am I trying too hard?Thank you.
have you tried just using the workspace switch ? and no workset.

In a word: yes.
ORD will remember the last WorkSpace and WorkSet selected. Once a user makes their initial selection, that will be the default set for the next time they launch ORD.
You can also make use of the Recent WorkSets panel on the left side of the WorkPage. The most often used can be pinned there.

I get trying to make things easier for the user, but does 25 plus icons on the desktop really help ?
Let the users make the choice when starting the product and getting to the work page. As you stated, they will still need to make a choice for the workset anyway.
Fair enough. They are going to need to know which client the project is for anyways, so extra icons probably are overkill.
I'm overthinking this all, aren't I?
