Manage export of files on AVD

If you want to export files from the WFM client on Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD), you must use the desktop version of AVD. After you install the desktop version of AVD, you must subscribe to the workspace on the remote AVD machine. The files you export can then be saved on your local computer. You cannot save files to folders on, for example, your company network. Follow the instructions for Windows or Mac below to install the desktop client and subscribe to a workspace.

NOTE   You must have admin rights for the local computer where you want to install the desktop client.



Follow this guide to install the AVD client and subscribe to a workspace.

NOTE   On Windows, subscribing to a workspace automatically lets you access your local C:\ drive from AVD.


On Mac computers, follow the steps below.

  1. First, follow this guide to install the AVD macOS client: Connect to Azure Virtual Desktop with the macOS client.
  2. Then follow these steps to subscribe to a workspace and select what folder to access from AVD.
    1. Go to Preferences (see 1 in the image below).
    2. On the General tab, select the folder that you want to share with the remote system (see 2 in the image below).

    3. Close AVD, and reopen it. You can now find the shared folder in This PC on the remote machine.

NOTE   You can use the web client to import forecasts and new employees. For further information, see Import new employees for WFM, Import forecasts for several skills at a time, and Import external forecasts.
