Tips for working from home

For those staff working remotely via Citrix Remote Access, you may notice your remote access desktop is not the same as your desktop at work.

Once you login and access Microsoft Office Desktop:

  • You will have access to: Microsoft Office suite, health authority web applications and personal files on your home drive 
  • You will not have access to your personal desktop shortcuts or shared network drives. 
Read the Mapping Network Drives When Remote guide (open when in Citrix), if you need access to other shared network drives. 

If you need additional assistance, email the IMITS Service Desk at ITContact@hssbc.ca. Please have your network drive path information ready (a screenshot, if possible).
