With start session scripts, you can configure specific View desktop settings before a desktop session starts based on information received from Horizon Client and View Connection Server.

For example, you can use a start session script to configure desktop policies based on client device and user location instead of setting up multiple desktop pools that have different desktop policies. A start session script can enable mapped drives, clipboard redirection, and other desktop features for a user who has an IP address in your organization’s internal domain, but disallow these features for a user who has an IP address in an external domain.
