Assigning Applications to Users or Groups
Once you have published some applications, you can publish them to one or more users and/or groups.
To do so, click on the "Assign Application" tile in the "Applications" section of the AdminTool.
The following window will be displayed. It allows you to assign applications to a selected user or group:
How to Assign an Application to a user (or a group)
In the left tree view, you can see a complete list of all your users and groups (local as well as from your Active Directory if any).
All users and groups having at least one application assigned are displayed with their name in bold.
In the left tree view, click on a user (or a group): his currently assigned applications will be checked in the right tree view.
- You can check an application to assign it to the currently selected user (or group).
- You can uncheck an application to unassign it.
- Changes made to users and groups assignments are instantly applied.
Change all Applications Assignments
You can change which application is available to which user/group on the same window.
It is a good way to visually check the current application assignments.
In this example, the users John and Julia, as well as any member of the "Users" Group will be able to see the Microsoft Remote Desktop and to use the Notepad, Foxit, Excel, Powerpoint and calc applications :
Important remarks when using TSplus Seamless Client
With the TSplus Seamless Client, the users will not display the Microsoft Remote Desktop windows.
The applications can be found on the local desktop as if they were native local applications.
Users will only see the applications assigned by the administrator.
- If a user has the right to use the default Microsoft Remote Desktop, the Seamless Client will display a background color to avoid having both the Remote and the Local Desktop icons piled on the screen.
- The Seamless Client session is held open only when an application is running and being pushed through to the local client.
If no application has been assigned to this user, TSplus will automatically use the TSplus Taskbar.
- If a user has specific applications assigned, they will seamlessly see these applications when the session is opened.
When the last application is closed the session ends.
Rules for Microsoft Remote Desktop, TSplus Remote Taskbar, Floating Panel and Application Panel
- You can customize your user's work environment by assigning one application out of these four: Microsoft Remote Desktop, TSplus Remote TaskBar, Floating Panel and Application Panel.
- If no application is assigned to one user, he will see the Microsoft Remote Desktop which will display the Desktop folder shortcuts.
- If one user has several allocations plus the Microsoft Remote Desktop, he will see a remote desktop.
- If a user has several applications plus the TSplus TaskBar, he will see the TaskBar displaying his Desktop folder' shortcuts.
For more information on the Remote Taskbar, Floating and Application Panels, see these documentations: Remote Taskbar, Floating and Application Panels
RemoteApp Menu on Client
Since TSplus 10.50 version, the Administrator can enable a RemoteApp menu by ticking this box at the bottom of the Assign Applications window:
The Administrator must then generate a new connection client. Each user will be able see, on his START menu, and within his SISTRAY icons, the list of his assigned applications.
Without using his generated client, he will be able to select within these "Local Menus" one of these applications and to start it as a RemoteAPP. Once launched, this menu is available even after the user ended his
session or rebooted his pc.
For more information, see this page.
Running scripts/programs on session opening
- If you want to start a script when the session opens, you must name it LOGON.BAT or LOGON.CMD and copy this script:
- In the Application Data folder of All Users if this script applies to all users,
- In the Application Data of the user if this script applies to this user.
- If you want to start a script on the client side when a session is opening, you just have to name a program STARTUP.EXE and to copy it at the home drive of the user PC (C:\startup.exe).
- If you want a program to be started as a service when the TSplus server reboots you have to name this program STARTUP.EXE and copy it in the folder:
C:\Program Files\TSplus\UserDesktop\Files\ .
