Personally I think it is vital to have a default client trigger for setting
The larger the installation, the more likely you will get the following
scenario with new users:
User: How do I get started with Perforce?
Colleague: Create a client workspace.
User: OK, done that (accepting defaults including view), now what?
Colleague: Sync it...
