What’s New in Citrix XenApp Essentials – Nov 2017

I am excited to be back with another post in the What’s New in XenApp Essentials series. I hope you had a chance to review my first post in this series posted in August. You will notice that we are rapidly adding more value while also continuing to simplify the product experience. Here are some of the key features that we’ve rolled out in recent weeks:

StoreFront evolves to Workspace Experience for XenApp Essentials: Citrix shared the vision of Workspaces at Citrix Synergy 2017. I am proud to share that XenApp Essentials is one of the first Citrix Cloud services to embrace the Workspace vision of accessing apps and data from any device anywhere. The new Workspace experience user interface (UI) will now effectively replace the current StoreFront UI. Several customers already have rolled out Workspace in the last few weeks and we expect to complete the rollout soon. Advantages to customers include:

  • New simplified access experience: Now as end users access the published resources using Workspace URL (previously StoreFront URL), they will be invited to a new experience which will further simplify their access, including enhanced app layout, custom logos and friendly access URL to help improve the end user adoption and productivity. The screenshot below summarizes some of the key changes. We expect to evolve the Workspace Experience over time, so stay tuned for more exciting updates. If you are an existing XenApp Essentials customer, then you can learn more about this update here.
  • Add custom logos and color scheme: One of the immediate benefits of XenApp Essentials adopting Workspace experience platform is the ability to customize the look and feel of the user portal. You have the ability to add your own company logo along with modifying the color scheme of the portal to match your corporate brand. You can configure these customizations in the Appearance tab of the Workspace Configuration page of the admin portal as shown below.
  • Customize access URL: With Workspace configuration, you also have the ability to modify the authentication domain portion of your Workspace access URL to create a friendly URL for your users to help remember. Many of you have previously reached out to Citrix to have us modify the assigned Workspace URL. This was a manual process that required a Citrix Support ticket, but now you can easily do it yourself using the Access tab in Workspace Configuration page as show below.
