In my work, we give each of the developers a branch that contains all
the files in the main branch. This allows them to work on the files
via p4 edit/submit/sync/whatever without messing up the main branch.
It also allows them to have multiple clients (for development on
different architectures) which can be thought of a their local
directory sandboxes. We call that branch their sandbox.
