First Time Users

What do I need to do to get going?
You will need to complete the following steps to get started:

1. Install the Citrix client (see Installing Citrix Receiver)
2. Login for the first time which will require you to change your password
» We provide users with their login information. Passwords we send to a user are considered temporary and will need to be changed once the user logs in (see Passwords)
3. Once logged in, click on the application you want to run (see Running a ShareBuilder application)

What is Citrix?

ShareBuilder applications are not standalone software products. Due to their complexity, they cannot be installed locally; instead they must run off our servers. This creates the best experience for our customers. Our development team is constantly working to enhance our applications and Citrix allows us to easily improve our applications while our customers NEVER have to install a patch or upgrade. Each time you login and run an application you are automatically running the latest and greatest version!

Installing Citrix Receiver

In order to use the ShareBuilder applications you must have Citrix Receiver installed on your computer. If you change computers or your computer gets replaced, the Receiver will need to be installed again.

» Some of our customers have computer networks that restrict users from installing software. If you do have restrictions in place the installation will not complete because of an error. If this happens let a member of your IT staff know that you need this installed, if they would like more information regarding this installation please have them Contact Us
» If your computer already has the Receiver installed, trying to re-install will not harm the initial installation

You will need to complete the following steps:

1. Visit receiver.citrix.com and follow the installation steps.
2. Click on Customer Login at the top right of the screen and login to start using the applications

» You will not have to install this again for this computer; you can go directly to the ‘Customer Login’ section next time!
» Note: Depending on how your browser is setup, you may need to close it and come back to our website for the installation to be recognized.

SSL Error 61: Citrix Server not Trusted

We use a secure server to facilitate the login process and publish our own Security Certificate for that server. This is better for our business because we can extend the expiration date of the certificate and reduce the frequency for our customers to confirm them. This is however not a common practice with secure websites and is considered ‘untrusted’ by most internet browsers. Internet browsers have built-in measures to protect you from submitting sensitive information to an ‘untrusted’ website.

We will never ask for sensitive information and in order to accept our Security Certificate and fix the SSL Error 61, complete the following steps:

!! DO NOT use this information to accept a certificate from a website which asks you for financial or personal information !!

Please view the documentation provided for instructions on how to troubleshoot the SSL Error 61 in most common browsers, including Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, and Mozilla Firefox
