The system can provide a highly granular level of access control and capabilities to individual users, as well as publish information to the entire Web.

Opening and Saving Files in LUApps

Using the LUApps Citrix environment to open and save files is a bit more complex than on one's own computer, because it presents a number of additional options.  The image below points out various areas that users may see when they use a program delivered via LUApps.  Be sure to take a little extra time when saving your files to make sure you remember where they went.

Virtual Software: LUapps

Virtual software systems, also known as 'application virtualization' technologies, allow users to run numerous programs that aren’t installed on their devices by installing a single piece of client software (Citrix Receiver / Workspace), and using it to connect to a central server on which the programs actually run.  This enables Android, iOS or Mac users to easily access software that is only written for Windows, for example. Lehigh now uses Citrix for this, and has a customized implementation called 'LUapps'.
