Your webtop is a special web page that lists the applications you can run through SGD and enables you to run them.
SGD Webtop shows the different areas of the webtop.
The different areas of the webtop are described in the following sections.
This area of the webtop includes buttons for logging out and for displaying help and diagnostics information.
See Logging Out for more information about logging out of SGD.
From the webtop, you can display a page containing diagnostics information. This is useful if you need to contact Support.
The Applications area of the webtop is used to display the list of applications that you can run through SGD.
See Using Applications for more information about running applications.
Only an SGD Administrator can add an application to, or remove an application from, the list of applications that you can run. If you want more applications, contact an SGD Administrator. However, you can choose how and when your applications display on your webtop. You do this by creating webtop groups. See Application Groups.
The Printing area of the webtop includes links that enable you to list and control your print jobs.
See Printing for more information about printing.
The Information area is used to display error messages and system information. The information displayed includes the following:
Secure connection status
Password expiry messages for LDAP and Active Directory accounts
Your SGD user name is displayed on the webtop toolbar, next to the padlock symbol, as shown in User Name Displayed on the Webtop Toolbar.
If the toolbar says you are logged in as “Guest user” then you either logged in without typing a user name and password, known as an anonymous login, or you are using a webtop that is shared with other users.
If you have a secure connection, the locked padlock symbol is displayed below the webtop menu bar. Also, when you first log in, the page that is displayed on the webtop tells you whether you have a secure or a standard connection.
Secure connections to SGD are available only if an SGD Administrator has enabled them.
You might not automatically receive a secure connection, or you might only get a secure connection under certain circumstances. Contact your SGD Administrator if you do not get a secure connection when you need one.
