You can organize the Hub catalog layout to promote apps, add different sections to display apps, and enabling the Favorite tab. You can also enable app ratings. The Hub Services out-of-the-box layout of the App Catalog displays the New Apps section, followed by the Recommended Apps section. You can change the default view when you create the global app catalog, and you can create different versions of the app catalog.

The global Hub catalog might not meet all your needs. You can create versions of the catalog to emphasize different sections and select specific categories of apps that are available in the catalog. For example, you can create a version of the app catalog for the HR group. For this app catalog, you promote apps that employees who work in HR use, and you add categories to the catalog that feature apps that are HR business-related apps. When you create a template for the HR group, you select the HR version of the catalog.

Beginning with the Hub Services Cloud August 2020 release, when you create the global Hub catalog settings, you select the platforms that can access the global catalog. The platforms options are Android, Apple iOS, macOS, and Windows Desktop. When Workspace ONE Access is integrated, the web browser is enabled.
