Different working directory per user in RStudio Workbench

using Workbench on a linux server, I would like to give every user his own working directory different from his home directory.

Tried to change the entry in rsession.conf to "session-default working-dir=/..path../$USER" but it looks like I cannot use the user environment variable. Is there any way to get that done?

Howdy @lexa1! Is there a particular reason for this aim? It'd be great to understand if you want to "move the home directory" (storage reasons, permission reasons, etc.) or "have a specific different directory."

In my experience, "moving the home directory" is usually the easier path :smile: But it'd be good to know if there is a particular reason to get things out of the home directory!
