/format

Specifies the format of the workspace information. Brief returns workspace information without mappings. Detailed returns workspace information and also the mappings. The detailed format can only be used when the /server option is specified. Brief is the default value.

/updateUserName

Updates security identification information on the Team Foundation server for a user whose network user name has been changed. If you specify this option, you must also specify a server by using the /server option.

/updateComputerName

The workspaces command of the tf command-line utility displays information about workspaces on the current computer, owned by a specified user, or for all workspaces associated with a specific Team Foundation Server. For each workspace, Team Foundation displays the name, owner, and computer name. With detailed output, it also shows the workspace mappings. Unless you provide a filter such as owner, computer or workspace name, Team Foundation only displays information about the workspaces that you have created.

For more information about how to edit workspace properties, see Workspace Command.
