Enable hopTo: Allows users under this GPO to connect to hosts using the hopTo client.

Enable documents from other apps to be opened in the hopTo app: The hopTo Work app supports opening documents from other applications. Generally, this feature can pose a potential security risk as it allows external documents to be saved in the secure hopTo Work environment. This setting is not stored in a policies key.

Enable documents from hopTo to be shared with other apps: The hopTo app supports a variety of file sharing capabilities, such as “Email as attachment”, “Open In…” to open documents in other apps on the client device. Generally, these features can pose a potential security risk as it allows documents to leave the secure hopTo environment. This setting is not stored in a policies key.

Enable access to SharePoint websites: Enter the SharePoint URL you want users to access. Click the Add button. You can also delete the URL by clicking Delete. This setting is not stored in a policies key.

Enable access to cloud storage accounts: Specify which cloud storage accounts you want to make available to users. Enabling cloud storage accounts makes these providers available to hopTo users, but they still need to authenticate those accounts in the hopTo workspace. This setting is not stored in a policies key.
