Set up workspaces

Citrix Workspace is a complete digital workspace solution that allows your end-users to get work done anywhere, at any time, on any device. Users sign in to Citrix Workspace, either through their web browser or through a Workspace app that’s installed on their device. After signing in, users can access the applications and desktops that they’re authorized to use.

Workspace features

  • Enable single sign-on through the Citrix Federated Authentication Service.
  • Create a sign-in policy for your end-users that describes the appropriate use of your organization’s resources.
  • Use network locations to ensure that your internal users can connect quickly to their workspace resources and that your internal users are routed to their workspace through Citrix Gateway.
  • Allow your end-users to change their domain password when needed, without leaving Citrix Workspace.
  • Use site aggregation to provide access to resources in your on-premises Virtual Apps and Desktops deployment through Citrix Workspace instead of StoreFront.
  • Enable service continuity to ensure that your end-users can still access their workspace resources in the event of a cloud service outage.

  3. Configure secure access to your workspace for remote end-users through an on-premises Citrix Gateway or the Citrix Gateway service.
  4. Configure workspace features such as single sign-on and service continuity.

  1. Customize the default theme of your workspace.
  2. Customize the Workspace URL that your end-users will access.
