What’s new in 2402.1

Compatible with Google ChromeOS v121

  • Short name for store URLs Previously, you were able to see the store URLs, but there was no provision for IT administrators or end users to add or modify the store names. This arrangement made it difficult for the administrators and users to remember the store URLs. Starting with the 2402.1 release, for managed users, administrators can push a custom store name along with the store URL from Google Admin Console. This feature makes it easier for users to identify the different stores. Additionally, the administrator can decide if the user can edit the store name or not by setting the attribute allowEditStoreName to true or false. For BYOD users, the store name is auto-generated. For example, Store, Store 1, Store 2, and so on. The stores are discovered using the email-based store discovery feature. Users can edit the store name as required.

Fixed issue in 2402.1

  • In kiosk mode, sessions might not start automatically even when the Auto launch desktop setting is enabled in StoreFront.
  • When you enable the service continuity feature, and click Reconnect to Workspace, in the sign-in screen Use Workspace offline banner doesn't appear.
  • When you enable the service continuity feature and the cloud deployment outage occurs, the Citrix Workspace app icon appears on the Chrome shelf instead of the actual desktop session's icons.
  • Citrix Workspace app icon appears on the Chrome shelf instead of the actual desktop session’s icons. The issue occurs when you enable the service continuity feature and the cloud deployment outage occurs.
  • When you copy and paste files using Client Drive Mapping functionality from your local device to the VDA and conversely, data might get corrupted. This issue is fixed. However, if you attempt to modify files inside the mapped drive from VDA might still result in data corruption.

User reviews
There is a common error when using either the Android app or the ChromeOS extension. If you leave the main window of the Workspace open for any period of time, then the main window times-out. If at this point you attempt to refresh the window you are greeted with the following message: "You cannot log on using a smart card.". On the Android app, if you select settings, then click Security Token, then click "Logout", you can reset the app, refresh & enter Workspace again anew. The chrome extension does not allow this, & the only way to logback into Citrix is by restarting your entire Chromebook. This is highly inconvenient if you are attempting to work from a Chromebook using Citrix, cutting into productivity. Please investigate & fix this. I suspect this is why so many people struggle to get Citrix Workspace working, as per many reviews.
