how to set workspace when running an app


I'm not sure if this is possible, but I want to know if there is a way to run an app and have it always open in all the workspaces. Or for that matter, is there a way to tell it what workspace to open in from the command line? I guess it would help to tell you I am using RedHat 8 and Gnome.

As for having a window open in a certain workspace, I do not
know. But, for having a window stay open regardless of what
workspace your in, set the window to Sticky. You can do it by
right clicking the title bar and selecting Sticky Window (or
something of the sort, I'm not too sure since I don't use gnome).
And setting the window sticky keeps it on the workspace your
currently on and moves it to whatever workspace you change to.
