Having a single workspace shared by multiple users would go against the
license policy of Perforce.
I'm NOT saying that's what you intend, but it's one reason why you
wouldn't be able to do it.
You can have a workspace that is sharable by multiple machines - but
this is a bad practice in all be a few special cases because Perforce
remembers the state of the workspace - so your users would be forced to
always force-sync everything.
It would be easy to create workspaces for each user by simply giving
each the same view and the same root.
P4Win makes that easy, you can create one workspace, and simply clone
the others using the "Create from another workspace" option.

Subject: [p4] Same workspace for multiple user
Is it possible to have the same workspace for multiple user. I know it
is not the best practice but the way we would be using it, it would be
only to sync file to the same place on everybody's computer. We are
looking in having everybody the same working environment. So to be, we
need everybody to have the same header file in the same path.
So what is the best way of having a workspace for multiple user? Is
there some knowledge I would need to know.
