Once logged on, if you double-click on the 'My Computer' you should see the drives you normally have mapped on your own machine, including your own C: and H: drives.

This means that when working with the remote desktop's version of Front Page you will still be able to access or import any files on your own machine.

Events Create an “event calendar” to promote things going on at your company.

Only do this if you have a substantial amount of events, otherwise your calendar will look bare.
