Introducing "Citrix StoreFront":

LSUHSC IT is currently working to replace the familiar "CitrixWeb" with a more current portal called "Citrix StoreFront", in order to improve our overall Citrix accessibility, and to remain fully supported by Citrix.  StoreFront offers the ability to connect to your Citrix resources with relative ease, using a broad variety of client operating systems, client devices, and web browsers.  StoreFront is very intuitive to use, especially for those already familiar with CitrixWeb.   If you have already been using CitrixWeb, you should not need to install anything new on your workstation(s) in order to be able to use StoreFront.  From now on, you should use StoreFront (https://storefront.lsuhsc.edu) for all your Citrix access.   To make this transition easier, we will continue to keep the old CitrixWeb site (https://citrixweb.lsuhsc.edu) available for you until September 17, 2018.  We have tested StoreFront thoroughly, but if you encounter an issue, we ask that you report the issue to our Help Desk, and switch back to CitrixWeb temporarily, until we can assist you with StoreFront.  To make the final transition to StoreFront easier, we will continue to allow use of the commonly-known https://citrixweb.lsuhsc.edu address, even after CitrixWeb has been retired, and just redirect that address to the new StoreFront system beginning September 17.     

The Tutorial links below describe how to successfully log on to StoreFront (https://storefront.lsuhsc.edu), and use it to connect to your Citrix desktops and apps.  Be sure to select the link that corresponds with the type of device and/or web browser that you are using to connect to your Citrix desktops or applications.  

Important:  For users who have Windows workstations, along with StoreFront comes a new feature called the Citrix “Desktop Viewer”.  Because the Desktop Viewer displays your Citrix Desktop somewhat differently than what you are accustomed to, it is strongly recommended that you briefly familiarize yourself with the information in the "Introduction to the Citrix StoreFront 'Desktop Viewer'" tutorial page, linked below, before using Storefront with Windows.
