Bug Description

In Trusty beta 2, fully updated, the workplace switcher is not active by default.
This contradicts the doc,

I had to turn to a a third party page,
to see how to enable it.

This was on our task list spreadsheet since late in the 13.10 cycle, I think.

For my part of it, I had every intention of getting to it this cycle, and it could have been done early in the cycle.
