  1. URLs to specific resources

    Create static URLs to specific resources. This would allow for bookmarking specific resources in a browser and even putting those shortcuts on end-user desktops and start menus. If Windows Hello SSO were used for initial authentication then the process of clicking on a link to a resource would be seamless.

    • Support WAP, ADFS for RD Web Client

      The newly released (https://cloudblogs.microsoft.com/enterprisemobility/2018/03/28/remote-desktop-web-client-public-preview/) HTML5 client should support Web Application Proxy and ADFS. Doing so we'd have the ability to provide MFA and externally (securely) publish the resources.

        • Ability to brand the web client

          We need a simpler CSS so that we can adapt the basic look and feel (primarilly colors and logo) to make the site look like a company site.
          Also simple ways of changing support mail and support URL to point to local IT support. The language files are great right now, but the CSS is more or less unreadable...

          • Add an option for 2 factor authentication

            A 2 factor authentication option (like Google authenticator) to more secure the HTML client from the web would be nice.

            • Drive redirection

              Client drive access? We rely heavily on clients being able to get to their client drives from within the remoteapps.

              • Windows Hello (Azure AD) Authentication

                Enable Windows Hello auth on the initial sign-in page.

                Use the login from the initial sign-in page to allow SSO to all published RemoteApps and Session Hosts.

                  • Allow direct connections to remote PCs

                    Add support for Servers without RDS Installation.

                    • Match desktop/application language with browser language

                      Today the keyboard/language is always set to Eng/US for the desktop regardless of what language the browser is set to, what language the user selects on the web page or the language previously selected by the user in the application/desktop. Suggest that the system remebers the language/keyboard layout selected by the user or sets the same as the browser language if the user has not done a selection in the application/desktop.

                      • Support for custom RDP properties

                        We are using custom RDP properties on some RD-Session collections and the WebClient does not seem to support that.

                        Example: We use the folowing command to set another RD Gateway for a specific collection.

                        "Set-RDSessionCollectionConfiguration -CollectionName "CollectionNaem" -CustomRdpProperty" "gatewayhostname:s:gw2.domain.com"

                        Any future plans to support custom RDP properties on the WebClient?

                        /Andreas

                        • Multiple monitor support

                          There are several suggestions for something similar already, but they are talking about switching between multiple displays, only showing one at any given moment. Not sure if browsers are capable of this (yet!), but multiple monitor support would be huge.

                            • Google drive integration.

                              When using a chrome book device or windows device, provide folder redirection and google drive redirection.
                              Very hard to code or impossible ? Yet this would be a really good feature against AWS Appsteam.

                                For instance. Swedish keyboard layout creates backslash \ with AltGr+ key combo. This combo doesnt work in the RDS web client, actually no AltGr key-combo works..

                                  We have many descriptive names for our RemoteApps, which makes them too long when showing up in the web client, so I have to hover over the app to get the full name.

                                  • Enable custom prompt during remote app launch

                                    We have MFA integrated with RDG. When launching a remote app today there is no indication that RDG is waiting for 2FA token response thus making it look like the published app is having difficulty launching.
                                    We need to be able to either provide a custom prompt or the RDG/MFA integration need to be improved to make it more intuitive for users.
