You’ll need to use a browser to use MyWorkplace. We advise using Firefox. If you haven’t installed it yet, it’s available for download here: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
Do not use Safari because the Citrix Workspace App isn’t supported. This means you’ll be using MyWorkplace ‘light’ (HTML5) and this has limited functionality.
