User goals and features for end users
BMC Digital Workplace is highly configurable. Features available to users in the client applications depend on which functionality is enabled and how BMC Digital Workplace is configured.
BMC Digital Workplace web browser client
BMC Digital Workplace can be accessed from a web browser on your desktop or laptop. The following capabilities are available for the web browser client:
- Accessing AIF-type requests from the catalog. AIF-type requests use the Advanced Interface form from BMC Service Request Management.
- Opening e-Forms from BMC HR Case Management. (However, you can open PDF form attachments from BMC Helix Platform all clients.)
- Requesting virtual machines (VMs) (through integration with BMC Cloud Lifecycle Management).
- Embedded custom pages from BMC Helix Platform.
The web browser client supports notifications. For more information about how notifications are received, see Configuring status updates and notifications.
If an end user opens a BMC Digital Workplace request in BMC Helix Business Workflows and then adds both supported and unsupported attachment file types (such as zip or html), no attachments will appear when the request is opened again in BMC Digital Workplace.
