StoreFront supports both the classic and unified user experiences. With the classic experience, each receiver platform is responsible for delivering its own user experience. The new unified experience delivers a centrally managed HTML5 user experience to all web and native receivers. This supports customization and featured app groups management.
Stores created using this version of StoreFront use the unified experience by default, but for upgrades Citrix retains the classic experience by default. To support the unified experience you must associate a StoreFront store with a Receiver for Web site, and that site must be configured to use the unified experience.
Use the StoreFront management console to do the following Citrix Receiver for Web related tasks:
If using XenApp 6.x, applications set to Stream to client or Streamed if possible, otherwise accessed from a server are not supported with the unified experience enabled.
A Citrix Receiver for Web site is created automatically, whenever you create a store. You can also create additional Receiver for Web sites using this procedure.
You can select if a Citrix Receiver for Web website delivers the classic or unified experience. Note that enabling the classic experience disables the advanced customizations and featured app group management.
When a new store is created using StoreFront, a Citrix Receiver for Web site in unified mode is automatically created and associated with the store. However if you upgrade from a previous version of StoreFront, it defaults to the classic experience.
To select a Citrix Receiver for Web site to provide the unified experience for a store, you must have at least one Citrix Receiver for Web site created with the classic experience disabled.
To customize the Citrix Receiver appearance, your Citrix Receiver for Web website must have classic receiver experience disabled and the store must be set for the unified Citrix Receiver experience.
