When you are signed in to Workplace, you can access your websites in a few ways:
- Click a website from the Launch page, or
- Select Websites in the left navigation panel.
- Select the website you wish to open and click Launch.
When you first sign in to Workplace, it might take a few seconds for LocalZone™ to run through the security checks and establish a connection to the PCG. During this time, local applications listed in Workplace might be grayed out and unavailable to open.
Websites will launch within LocalZone™ in the default local browser assigned to you by your company. If you try to sign in to a managed account outside of the LocalZone™, you will get a message stating that the website is blocked.
If for any reason your device goes out of compliance, you will not be able to open websites in your LocalZone™ browser. You will need to remediate the issue before continuing with your work.
When you first sign in to Workplace and launch the default managed browser, you will not find your saved bookmarks stored there. For instance, if you used Chrome locally and saved all of your personal and work websites to Favorites or Bookmarks, they will not transfer to Chrome in Workplace.
To save your bookmarks within Workplace so that they can be tracked for auditing purposes, follow these instructions as described in E:100 VDA Essentials. It's important to follow compliance practices when it comes to websites you use for work.
You still get the benefit of a unified launch point for all of your websites. Stored in Websites in the left side panel, you'll see them categorized by My Accounts, My Bookmarks, Shared bookmarks, and Add bookmark. Click here to learn how to add bookmarks and websites to your Workplace.
Star your favorites to add them to the Launch page for quick access.
