I like keeping different applications on different workspace like :
-Work item on one
-Browser,messengers on one
-Music , videos on one
( i keep switching between these )
Is there a way to ensure that my applications open in a specific workspace automatically ?

If you open an app, move it to desired workspace. There click the context menu (usually left top corner) and check "Always on this workspace".
