Accessing the App Store
Access to the App Store is password protected, you must provide valid credentials (Username or email address and Password) to access it.
Forgot your password? If you enter an invalid username or password, you will see an error message. Click the Have you forgotten your password? link to request a new password via email, then follow the steps to login.
This short guide will show you step by step how to:
Log in to App Store
Login With Single Sign-On (SSO)
Using your preferred web browser, navigate to the web address provided by your administrator, for example, “mycollege.apporto.com.”
A ‘redirect’ screen displays.
Click Sign In to access the Apporto Login page.
Enter your Single Sign-On (SSO) username and password.
The App Store displays.
Login via Apporto Login Screen
Enter the credentials provided to you by your administrator in the Username or email address and Password fields.
The first time you log in to the system using the password provided by your administrator, you are directed to the PROFILE page to enter a new, permanent password. Also, the first time you log in, the App Store may take a little longer to launch, because your profile is being created.
The App Store is where you access all the applications and desktops available to you via Apporto.
For each application or desktop, you will see the name of the application, the name of the developer/publisher, the application type and an “action” button (Launch, Install, or Download).
In cases where an application is not authorized for your user account, the “action” button shows the label request, allowing you to submit a request for the application to your administrator.
There are four application types:
Streamed App: The most common type of app in Apporto. These apps are installed on a server in the cloud and “streamed” to your local computer through a web browser.
Downloadable App: Applications that you download and install on your local computer. These apps are not managed by the Apporto system. We simply enable you to download them.
Native App: Applications that you download and install on your local computer. These apps are managed by the Apporto system. The installation and configuration are streamlined for ease of use.
Web App: Applications that run in the browser by design. Apporto simply provides a link to launch these applications.
When you log into Apporto for the first time, apps are sorted alphabetically by default. For subsequent logins, apps will be sorted by frequency of use. To sort alphabetically, simply click Sort Alphabetically.
Sort Most Used
After your first login, apps are sorted by frequency of use by default. The most-used apps appear first. You may also click Sort Most Used to sort by frequency.
Search for an Application
When you search for an application, the system reads the word(s) in your search term as a string of characters (rather than as separate words), and searches for occurrences of the text string anywhere in the application name or the developer/publisher name.
For example, the search term “ad” would include the results “AutoCAD,” “Notepad” and “Cadence.”
Enter the term you wish to search for in the Search box, then press Enter.
The App Store refreshes to display only those applications that contain your search term.
Click the icon to clear the Search box and return to the full App Store.
To launch an App or Desktop click on the Launch button. See launching an App or Desktop for more information.
