Small Changes, Big Impact

In the first part of this blog series, we introduced Frame's new Application Mode, "App Mode 2.0," highlighting its dynamic nature and the possibility of customizing user interfaces for individual remote applications. We walked through Launchpads, defined their purpose, and elaborated on the key differences between them and Application Mode. We also provided an overview of some of the main features of App Mode 2.0 including customization of the Frame taskbar and Start menu.

In this follow-up post, we will delve deeper into the customization process, demonstrating how you can override the default layout and applications list for the Frame taskbar and how you can utilize this feature to significantly enhance end-user experiences.

4 Ways to Maximize Digital Workspace Performance

Dizzion has been delivering virtualized Digital Workspaces for over a decade, and we've seen first-hand that adoption rates for Digital Workspaces continue to rise, especially post pandemic. When we think about the drivers behind this, we can't help but think it has A LOT to do with the ever-increasing ability of the technology to meet the performance needs of a wider range of workloads. A few years ago, Digital Workspaces were widely considered only well suited to a few simple use cases, but today, there are numerous organizations using Digital Workspaces to serve their entire workforce, from CEO on down. There's a lot that contributes to the increase in Digital Workspace performance over the years - some of it has to do with software manufacturers improving protocols, platforms and adding features. But there is still a lot to be said for the way in which the underlying components are configured by a Digital Workspace service provider (or an IT department). Huge performance gains can be seen by ensuring that you're paying attention to some basic best practices that impact performance, four of which we've detailed in this blog post. If you're not doing these four things, your Digital Workspace environment(s) definitely aren't performing as well as they could be.

Application Optimization Essentials: Microsoft OneDrive

In previous blog posts, we talked about optimizations as they related to the Windows Operating System, including Active Setup, the Microsoft Store, Services & Scheduled Tasks, and more.

The focus of this blog series will be Application Optimizations. We started this series with our Introduction to Application Optimization, which showcases common items to look for when it comes to Application Optimization. We followed up with Application Optimization Essentials: Google Chrome, then soldiered on with Application Optimization Essentials: Microsoft Edge, before rounding out the most common browsers with Application Optimization Essentials: Mozilla Firefox. We then switched to a different type of application next, Adobe Acrobat Reader. This blog will deep dive into a common application, and one that is generally forced on you whether you like it or not, Microsoft OneDrive.

Exploring the Intricacies of User Settings Preconfiguration

Scenario: As an administrator, you are providing applications to your users through Frame’s desktop experience, application experience or any hybrid of both. Some of these applications are client-server applications and have input requirements on a per-user basis, such as server name, etc. You want to remove the extra complexity of manually entering this information from your end users experience. With Frame, how can you accomplish this?

This blog series centers around Frame Image Management. Image Management is “How do I set up my environment in the most optimal way, to minimize the number of images I have to manage?”. Part 1 of this series covered how to onboard and configure SaaS applications, while Part 2 covered how to install persistent applications in a non-persistent environment. This blog will cover another common virtual desktop use case: how to preconfigure user-specific settings for all users from the Sandbox.

Small Changes, Big Impact

Frame DaaS provides an array of features and tools to give customers flexibility around customizing end-user experiences. Providing a user interface (UI) for individual remote applications in a controlled manner is essential for many organizations' workflows. Leveraging this approach eliminates the excessive and unnecessary UI/UX elements of a full operating system, which is why Frame provides customers with two distinct “modes” for how an end-user interacts with their remote Windows applications: Desktop Mode, and Application Mode.

In this blog post, we will focus on the newly improved Application Mode feature and how you can customize the user interface while making the experience as tailored and dynamic as possible. This two-part series starts with a brief introduction (this post) and then moves on to a more technical example of how to customize the end-user experience dynamically (part two).
