RDS Connection Broker Collections for 2012, and XenApp Support
Workspot Clients can now utilize farms based on Microsoft RDS (Remote Desktop Services) and Citrix XenApp. In Control, IT can select a Farm Type of Microsoft RDS or Citrix XenApp. The figure below shows how an App may be defined to refer to a Microsoft 2012 Connection Broker that has a collection of servers (or hosts) for sales applications. This particular definition will refer to the Windows Application, EXCEL, in the Farm.

Uploading Trusted Certificates for the Enterprise
Adding Trusted Certificates is supported for the Enterprise. This is a useful feature that lets IT make the user experience more fluid. If the enteprise has its own internal Enterprise Plublic Key Infrastructure (PKI) and Certificate Authority (CA), an enterprise certificate may be issued that verifies the certificate authority internally. The user exprience is better since the user will not have to assert that the certificate on Web Apps is valid.

Defining PIN Complexity
Workspot requires a PIN to gain access to its features. Workspot Control has options for providing for more complex PINs. A PIN can contain 4 to 8 numbers or 4 to 8 alphanumeric characters. Another option lets administrators define PIN characteristics for Mobile or Desktop separately.

Assigning Groups to Domains
A Groups concept brings together App Bundles, Network selections, Policies, login messages, wallpaper preferences, and users under one "umbrella". Workspot Control lets administrators associate a group with a domain. By navigating to the Company->Settings panel and if Self Registration is checked for a domain in the Domain List; the Group drop down displays groups available for that particular domain.

Email Preferences for Reporting
Workspot Control contains Email Preferences for Reporting. This is located by hovering over the "person" icon next to the search box. Clicking on Email Settings in the drop-down menu reveals a dialog where an administrator has the option to not recieve any emails, or to receive them periodically - on a weekly, monthly, and/or quarterly basis.

Customizing Reports Using Drag and Drop
Reports are generated to provide analysis of many parameters available about device use. Given the number of options available for reporting; Workspot Control provides the administrator with a drag-and-drop UI for selecting, organizing, ordering, and reporting these data. Clicking on Customize Reports dispays the preferences dialog that allows the administrator to pick and organize the reports they use most often.
