Another perspective on the original question. If you're looking to get started with the existing workouts on Zwift, I'd suggest you start either in the "30 mins or less" bucket or the "90 minutes" bucket. In each category, you'll find a variety of choices that cover the basics. There are single-session workouts for HIIT, SST and the like. Try John's Mix or Emily's Mix, for example. It's important to do a ramp test before you get going too far, because then Zwift will estimate your FTP and calibrate the efforts in the workouts to be an appropriate level of exertion for the training goal of that session. Get the hang of the process with these single session workouts, then "go shopping" for other types you might like. This will also lead you to the idea of designing your own custom workouts, which are really useful for targeting other timed sessions or training objectives.
