Office applications unavailable from Citrix Workspace APPS tab

Due to a compatibility issue Microsoft Office applications cannot be launched from the APPS tab and have been temporarily removed. Microsoft are investigating the issue. As soon as a fix has been found we plan to make the Microsoft Office applications available again.

Please note: Microsoft Office applications are still available from Desktop@UCL Anywhere's DESKTOP.
