Saving in Citrix 

One of the most important items to know is how to save in Citrix. When you log off of a Citrix app or desktop environment, it is reset for the next person so all data will be wiped. Depending on the device you are working from, we have instructions on how you can save while using Citrix:

Web Client: Saving in the Citrix Environment using a web browser

Windows:  Saving in the Citrix Environment using a Windows device 

MacOS: Preparing MacOS to Save in Citrix 

ChromeBook: Saving on a Chromebook in Citrix
