The latest release of RES ONE Workspace 2015 has a lot of great capabilities highlighted in this blog post by my colleague Pete Downing. We have introduced another exciting capability, tile management for Windows 10. This was a popular capability for our customers running Windows 8.1 because it gave their IT teams better control over tiles to improve the overall user experience. Because of the growing adoption of Windows 10, it was a priority for us to extend this capability to the latest Microsoft OS. Now, for Windows 10 users, tiles can be managed centrally and organized based on app type, relevance, or other criteria. IT can allow tiles to be different based on user types and make the tiles visible based on user context.
With RES ONE Workspace 2015 SR1, IT can select from the following capabilities for users running Windows 10:
- Pin tiles to the user’s start screen
- Select the size of the tiles
- Specify which groups to add tiles
- Offer full control of the start screen by replacing all unmanaged tiles
- Supply a custom default tile layout for the user’s start screen
- Hide the tiles for specific user groups
- Dynamically adapt the tiles based on user context (location, device, network)
For organizations still running Windows 8.1, tile management settings will automatically move with the user when upgrading to Windows 10. With RES, the complexity around tile management and many other areas is simplified for IT and users can get off to a smooth start in their new Windows environment. Stay tuned for more posts on how RES is supporting customers on their journey towards Windows 10.
