Multiple Sessions for the Same User

Hi guys!

We have a situation where we would like to user the SAME user account to launch an application. Let's say its notepad.

In our stores, we may have 5 users that need to use citrix, and to use Notepad.

Now we dont want to have to create a user account for every user in our stores, so is it possible to publish a citrix application to userA, but let userA launch this application as many times as required - each with their own application state?

For example:

UserA launches citrix Notepad - disconnects with a line of text in Notepad
UserB launches citrix Notepad  - exits Notepad
UserA launches citrix Notepad - reconnects back to a line of text

Im not sure if this is possible, but if it is - any help greatly appreciated as to what needs to be done.

Thank you.

Go to the properties of the published application and choose "Application Limits" in the left pan. You will find the options on right side
By default multiple instances are allowed for a published application. You can limit the sessions to 'n' number of instances though. You will find this option in the properties of the published application.

In the ICA tcp properties under the sessions tab you can select the only allow reconnection from the previous client setting to keep users with the same user login from connecting to a session they didn't start.  

This can also be set in the users properties under the sessions tab by only allowing reconnection from originating client only.
