FSLogix Apps 2.8 - Roam XenApp Email Search and OneDrive

Posted by Brandon Lee on Mar 28, 2017 11:15:53 AM

With the official release of FSLogix Apps 2.8, FSLogix Office 365 Container for Citrix can now roam all XenApp email search, including gmail, outlook, and other email clients. Note that this is not limited to just XenApp, but will work on multi user mode environments (MUM) as well, such as standard RDS. The entire OneDrive App can now be roamed in an ODFC container. The key takeaway here is that the entire OneDrive App can be roamed without any external profile management requirements. Meaning, an adminstrator no longer has to struggle to figure out how to roam user info and can just hit the big easy button to roam OneDrive because FSLogix can seamlessly roam both the app and user data!

How to Roam OneDrive using FSLogix Office 365 Container

Posted by Brandon Lee on Feb 14, 2017 4:08:22 PM

Rene Bigler takes a look at how FSLogix Office 365 Containers are able to bridge the gap to allow OneDrive users the ability to roam their data in non-persistent VDI deployments. Rene asserts that, "until now there was no solution to persist synced data from consumer OneDrive or OneDrive for Business (the OneDrive part in Office 365). For this reason most admins decided to disable the OneDrive clients on non-persistent VDI. End users only could work with the online data accessed through their browser or Office Apps connected to the online OneDrive repository."

With the introduction and hyper adoption of Microsoft's Office 365, these issues are bubbling to the surface at an alarming rate. While there are a few 'workarounds' in the wild, their success is typically shaky at best and often times are not suitable for achieving an acceptable user experience.

In today's modern world of technology, email has evolved into one of the fundamental aspects of everyday business. Many of us rely on day-to-day email clients, such as Outlook, not only for the purposes of communication, but also as an archive for retaining vital information. Outlook's search functionality is something that is often taken for granted until it's no longer available.
