Configuring GoToAssist Settings for Worx Apps

Nov 13, 2013

App Controller and Citrix GoToAssist integrate to provide continuous technical support for mobile device users who are using WorxMail or WorxWeb. When you configure settings, you can add an email address, phone number, chat information, and ticket information. If the user needs assistance, they can tap a chat button on their mobile device and the GoToAssist web page opens.

To get started, you need to do the following:

  1. Log on to the GoToAssist web site.
  2. Create a new service for integrating GoToAssist with XenMobile.

When you do these steps, GoToAssist generates the email address that users can use to create a support ticket. This also creates an integration key that you enter in the App Controller management console.

When users start GoToAssist from their mobile device, the Worx app provisions XenMobile App Edition and GoToAssist accounts. GoToAssist sends an account key (token) to XenMobile App Edition which is then sent to the Worx app. Users can use GoToAssist to receive technical support in the following ways:

  • Enter a valid email address to allow support personnel to contact them.
  • Use chat to contact support personnel.
    Note: When users log on to chat from their device, the XenMobile App Edition and Worx app logs are bundled together and sent to support personnel.
  • Create an incident form by clicking Create Incident. If support personnel are not available through chat, GoToAssist redirects users to the incident form automatically.

When you configure GoToAssist in App Controller, the settings appear on the Support Options page in Settings. On this page you can view the settings for phone, chat, and ticket options. In Support Options, you can do the following:

  • Edit existing GoToAssist settings for phone, chat, or the ticket.
  • Add email or key support options.
  • Delete an option.

On the Support Options page, you can add the following support information, however Citrix recommends using the GoToAssist page in Settings to configure support settings.

  • Phone numbers
  • Email addresses
  • Chat settings
  • Ticket settings
  • Custom key settings
