  4. Add SmartCard Authentication to Windows

    Add support for using a SmartCard (PIV or CAC) to authenticate to the Windows OS itself. A number of large federal agencies (and presumably companies within the private sector as well) now require SmartCard based login. The redirection added to the most recent beta is a step in the right direction, but does not get us all the way there. We need to be able to authenticate to the OS itself (particularly to Windows Servers) for this app to be truly useful.

  12. Folder and printer redirection for Remote Sources on Mac

    We have started to use RDS pretty heavily between our PC and Mac users. We have other apps that we would use in the RDS setup if we could get folder redirection for exports from the app.

  13. change group membership using drag & drop in GUI

    now you have to edit properties of RDP item to change it from one group to another. Using drag & drop in GUI seems more intuitive, not ?

  14. Disable menubar, access with Hotkey

    The drop down menu bar at the top of the screen when using Full screen mode is preventing me from accessing the top of my screen's RDP session.
    I would like a way to disable this menu bar so it only is accessible by a hot key, i.e Apple Key + 1 or 2.
    The previous version of the Remote Desktop app did this.

  16. Redirect printers with the correct driver.

    Currently when using the Remote Desktop Program the printers are redirected and do not use the correct driver. When you print PDF files over 2 pages long it can take upwards to 30 minutes to print. If you manually change the printer driver to use the correct driver on the server, the documents print immediately.

  20. Ability to import and use RDC Manager .rdg files

    With Windows version of RDC Man, you can import and/or save an .rdg config file. It would be nice if OSX app could use that .rdg file as well. Nice to have the same file supported in Windows and OSX!
