Connecting to Central Piedmont Cloud using the Citrix Workspace may provide access to more advanced features as opposed to connecting to Central Piedmont Cloud using the web browser interface. We recommend using Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox when working within the Central Piedmont Cloud Desktop-As-A-Service (DaaS), although other browsers can be used. It is strongly recommended to use the standalone Citrix Workspace application whenever possible.
Central Piedmont Cloud DaaS functions differently than previous versions or other virtual environments you may have used in the past. By utilizing HTML5 web technology, we can now deliver the Central Piedmont Cloud to your web browser without the need to download any web browser extensions or add-ons. You will no longer be prompted to download any files to setup or begin your session.
The following instructions were written using the Google Chrome web browser. All of the information on this page is consistent with any browser that you may be using, but the screenshots and download locations may differ depending on your current browser.
