# Managing Recipes

This section introduces the tools that enable you to seamlessly manage recipes:

# Environments

Environments are additional workspaces that are connected to your main workspace, allowing you to organize recipes into workspaces designated for development, testing, and production.

Because the other workspaces (or environments) are connected to your main workspace, you can easily deploy recipes from one environment to the other. This allows you to focus on collaborating with your team and improving overall recipe quality, not on maintenance. Learn more

Note: The Recipe Lifecycle Management tool will still continue to work, but we recommend migrating to Environments for a more streamlined experience.

# Workato Admin Dashboard

Monitor the health of your running recipes with the Dashboard. The Workato Dashboard allows users to visualize real-time data pertaining to the recipes and connections in their Workato account at a glance. It provides key insights, analytics, and actions so you can discover and resolve issues faster. Learn more.

# Activity Audit

The Activity audit provides a simple and powerful interface for Workato administrators to comprehensively track changes to the account, connections, recipes, folders, and packages. Throughout the lifecycle of your project, it gives you the visibility to quickly identify the changes and analyze their impact. Learn more.
