1.  A fresh new look for the Workplace Mac App

We have given the Mac application a complete makeover to help you focus on the things that are most important to you. The app is no longer constrained to a small window but can now be resized, all the way up to full-screen mode, to fit the way you work. We’ve also taken the cue from the Workplace Web App and introduced a sidebar with global search, sporting many new features in different sections.

 

 


2. Your hosted apps and websites have been moved to their own sections

To reduce clutter on the launch page, we’ve created separate sections for hosted applications and websites. Visit either section to ‘star’ your favorite items to pin them to the launch page.

 

 

 

3. You can now ‘star’ files to pin them to your launch page

We’re especially excited about this feature because it is a direct request from our customers who used file shortcuts on our classic webtop interface. In the past, you were only able to ‘star’ websites, applications and folders, but with Workplace 3.0, we have extended that functionality for you to ‘star’ files too.
 
Your starred files and folders will be available at your fingertips as you can open them directly from the launch page. This means you will no longer have to click around multiple times just to locate them!
 
 
 
  

4. New feature introduction: Websites

To consolidate all your websites, we are adding a new section just for that purpose. You can 'star' your frequently-used websites so that they will appear on the launch page for quick access, but all other websites will still be accessible from the websites section.
 
Additionally, you can now save your websites with or without credentials attached. You will be able to set up your own username and passwords without having to rely on your Company Manager to do so. You will also have access to your own saved passwords and have the ability to change them as needed.
 
To increase ease of collaboration, you will now be able to share bookmarks and websites with your colleagues. We have also made it easy to discern various different types of websites, namely:
  • Account– Websites which are stored with username and password attached
  • Bookmark– Websites which are stored without credentials
  • Shared with me– Websites that others have sent to you
  • Shared by me– Websites that you have shared with your colleagues
As always, you can 'star' your favorite websites and access them directly from your launch page.
 
As a note to Company Managers - If there are specific websites for which your firm would like to disable sharing, please email us at helpdesk@os33.com or call us at 866-583-8911 and we will have it set up for you.

 

 


4.  Hosted apps will now be in one place

In line with the aim to simplify your workflow to increase productivity, we have given your hosted applications their very own section. If you click on“Hosted app” on the sidebar, you will find all your hosted applications.
 
As always, you will be able to 'star' the ones you use regularly and they will appear on your launch page for quick and easy access.

 

 

 

5.  CompliancStatus

In alignment to our mission of keeping your firm’s data secure and compliant, we are introducing a brand new feature for all Workplace desktop apps.
 
This new feature is known as 'ComplianceStatus' and it will be implemented on Workplace Windows and Mac apps. With Workplace 3.0, the compliance status of your device will be checked in comparison to industry best practices, and in some cases, recommendations for remediation will be made.
 
Click the 'ComplianceStatus' button in the bottom-left of your desktop app to see your computer’s status. 
 
This feature will be available to all Workplace 3.0 desktop app users, and enforcement of company compliance policies will be at the discretion of Company Managers.
