Workspace is not updating the page with the javascript XMLHTTPRequest object.

I'm using the finished/js/widget.js file that was supplied and clicking on the preview button in workspaces to view that page but there is nothing in the Employee list on the web page. Nothing is showing up in the Chrome browser console either.

I have been battling with this one for a few days. Take out the "finished". Use "<script src="js/widget.js"></script> to link to the proper file in your HTML. And/or if your talking about the xhr.open, then use xhr.open('GET', 'data/employees.json');. I don't know what the purpose of the finished files are. But they are not the the one's to use.
