2019­–New Year, New CUGC Platform!

Just before the holidays, we launched a new myCUGC.org, with a fresh new look and some exciting new features. The new design and functionality was just the beginning, as we’ll continue to roll-out additional features throughout the coming months. But for now, here’s a quick rundown of what’s new and exciting on the site:

New Home Page: We’ve condensed things for a fresh look and to make room for new features, such as the larger, full-screen scrolling banner carousel at the top of the screen. Check here for our biggest announcements and upcoming events.

Sticky Top Nav Bar: Scroll down the page and the nav bar stays with you so you always have quick access to main site areas.

Expanded Footer: Easier navigation throughout the site, as well as hot links for Citrix Support Forums and Citrix Certification Programs.

Featured Articles Section: Focused attention on our most current blog content.

Activity Leaderboard: Scroll down to the leaderboard to see who’s contributing and who’s stacking up points for things like blogging, answering a forum post, and completing a profile throughout the most recent week.

Forums
: Improved look and feel, with the ability to reply inline for more legible discussions.

  • When you subscribe to a forum, you can now opt to receive updates in real time, or in a daily digest. (To subscribe to a forum, go to your profile in the top right corner of the home page, click on My Account and then Community Notifications. Here, you can subscribe to multiple forums in one place.)
  • The "Recommend" feature from the blogs also carries over to the forums. Think a post is good? Recommend it so others know!
  • Original thread posters and moderators can now mark a reply as “Best Answer” to reduce time spent searching through threads.
  • Ribbons under profile pictures identify Citrix experts and CUGC leaders, providing you with information about the person posting.

  • Badges for recognition and contributions
  • More personalized experience
  • Growing a more engaged, helpful community for Citrix users to use as a resource for career development
