Glue42 Launch Bar

We are often asked “Do I get the source code for the Trial-Edition launch bar?”, “Can I customize the launch bar?” , ”Can I connect it to my own directory services?”. Well, the answers are yes, yes, and yes!

To prove the point, we have just recently built a completely different style of launch bar…

I guess a full-width launch bar fixed to the top of the screen is not that unusual. What’s interesting, and different, is how this launch bar handles desktop workspaces.

  • The Glue42 launch bar is designed to work with a default workspace based on the user’s team or role. This workspace can be configured to host a set of ‘quick-start’ applications of the user’s choice (entitlements and security permitting).
  • The default workspace can’t be deleted or renamed.
  • Switching to a new workspace will not close the default workspace – but rather hide it and the applications from view. Only applications hosted by the current workspace will be visible on the desktop and in the Windows taskbar.
  • To optimize machine resources, Glue42 will automatically hibernate the hidden applications.
  • All workspaces are ‘pinned’ to the launch-bar for speedy access.

This launch bar shows a very specific use case – and that’s the idea. We don’t believe that one size fits all and like the rest of our platform can easily be reconfigured to meet specific requirements.
