Deploying the Citrix ShareFile Outlook Plugin using AppSense Environment Manager
One of the most popular tools for Citrix ShareFile is the ShareFile Outlook Plug-in. It’s a very lightweight install that allows a user to use ShareFile to share and request files without ever having to leave Outlook. The way the plugin works is ingenious and leverages the user’s existing email attachment workflow, they don’t have to learn a new way of doing things. It will generate a web link and embed it into the body of the email automatically if the file is detected to be over a certain size (5 MB is the default and you can set it to whatever you like). When the user sends the message, that’s when the file is actually uploaded into the ShareFile environment. For this usability factor alone it has become what I would call a critical tool you need to deploy as part of every Citrix ShareFile deployment. The ShareFile Sync for Windows physical endpoints, ShareFile On-Demand Sync for XenApp/XenDesktop, and the newer ShareFile Drive Mapper are also important clients you should leverage in your environment but nothing is an essential as the ShareFile Outlook Plugin in my opinion.
About the Citrix ShareFile Outlook Plug-in
The description from the download page does a great job summarizing what the Outlook plugin offers:
The ShareFile Outlook Plug-in automatically detects and uploads attachments to your ShareFile account and provides the recipient with a link to the attachment in the body of the email. This integration provides users with the ability to send large attachments via email with ease and verify attachments are delivered securely. This plug-in supports both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Outlook 2007, 2010, 2013 and 2016. ShareFile account authentication is supported as well as accounts using Active Directory credentials and Single Sign On (SSO).
