Unable to view and edit files offline with Citrix Files desktop application. Would prefer to use this application instead of the Sharefile desktop application since it has a nicer user interface, but the lack of offline viewing makes it difficult.

Hi Seth, we will be bringing offline access to Citrix Files for Windows. We will start with a beta in early Q4 (ideally some point in October) and then public availability in late Q4 or early Q1, in which case you would be able to do exactly what you are referencing above. 

The end goal is that Citrix Files for Windows and Mac is an upgrade from Drive Mapper, Desktop app for Windows / Mac and Sync for Windows / Mac - so we will be brining in most, if not all, of those features - including things like offline access (sync). However, phase 1 is an upgrade to Drive Mapper, phase 2 is an upgrade to Desktop App and phase 3 is an upgrade to Sync.

I hope this helps.
