What is Citrix Workspace?
Citrix Workspace is a complete digital workspace solution that allows you to deliver secure access to the information, apps, and other content that are relevant to a person’s role in your organization. Users subscribe to the services you make available and can access them from anywhere, on any device. Citrix Workspace helps you organize and automate the most important details your users need to collaborate, make better decisions, and focus fully on their work.
What are microapps?
Citrix Workspace Microapps are services focused on delivering actions and notifications from your applications right into your Workspace or other channels. You do this by building integrations from your application data sources to the Microapps service enabling you to pull actions from your applications into Workspace.
Microapps deliver actionable forms and notifications. Microapps can write back to source systems. OAuth 2.0 is the recommended authentication mechanism for writing to SaaS applications. An access token specific to each user is stored to enable a seamless user experience for user actions.

Awesome news! I saw the press release awhile back and was talking about what this even meant. Glad to see this partnership is bearing fruit. Hopefully that means more money for muah! Good job Upwork on spreading your roots further. I'm starting to notice a trend here, Upwork is integrating itself into a lot of third party apps as a "micro app". Maybe Upwork might be integrated into Facebook's business tools (do they call it "suite" now?).
