Granting File Access to UFApps

File Access

     In order to open, save, and edit files from your local computer UFApps needs the ability to access your locally stored files.  To achieve this you will need to give the Citrix Receiver permission to access files on your computer and the first time you use UFApps you are asked to grant access.  If you choose to block access and would like to change it to permit access the steps below will help you achieve this. 

Windows

  • Go to apps.ufl.edu, login and launch an application
  • Once the application has launched navigate to the notification area of your taskbar and right click on the citrix receiver icon. Hover over “Online sessions” and then choose “Connection Center”
  • The connection center windows will open, highlight the Folder with a name similar to “AT-CXE-XAREG-01”

    In the right side of the window locate “Session Security” and in the dropdown box under files choose “Full Access”, this will allow you to save files locally on your computer, press the close button

Macintosh

  • Go to apps.ufl.edu, login and launch an application
  • Once the application has launched navigate to the menu bar and select “Citrix Viewer”, in the menu that drops down choose “Preferences”
  • A new window will open, select the devices tab
  • In the window you will now be able to choose the file access that you want, choose the “Read and Write” radio button then close the window
  • You should now be able to save file locally to your device
