If your company admin provisioned you with a desktop you should see a similar view as below. As you may notice at the right side of the tile, there is a “screen” and a “button”.
The screen can have different colors according to the state. Green is “on”. Gray is “off”. “Red” is a problem (please create a ticket with https://support.gdaas.com or via mail at firstname.lastname@example.org). When you hover over the screen, it will also show you the state in text.
The button can change shape according to the action it will perform when clicked. If it has an “off” icon it will shutdown your desktop when clicked. If it has a “play” icon it will power on your desktop when clicked. When you hover over the button, it will also show you the action in text. While the status is changing a circular arrow will appear.
To launch your desktop just click the green screen, depending on your OS or used browser, clicking the green screen will trigger an action.
With Receiver enabled it will download an .ICA file or automatically establish the connection with your receiver.
If an .ICA file was downloaded, clicking the .ICA file will establish the connection and start your receiver. Please note that the .ICA file is valid for 24 hours. If you haven’t installed your receiver yet, you can do this here.
With Browser enabled it will launch inside your browser.
