SAVEASPDF on Network Drive

Can you please help me on this
I am saving report as pdf on a network drive, we are on citrix with NAV 2016
when I run the code, it works fine but it is not working for other users, I made other users as super user
folder is shared with 'everyone' read/write
report.saveaspdf return true with no error but file is not created in folder

FileName := '\\myfolder\' + Customer2."No." + '.pdf';

ServerTempFile := FileMgmt.ServerTempFileName('pdf');
REPORT.SAVEASPDF(EmailTemplate."Report ID", ServerTempFile, Customer2);
FileMgmt.DownloadToFile(ServerTempFile,FileName); //copy to my network folder

or run directly
REPORT.SAVEASPDF(EmailTemplate."Report ID", FileName, Customer2);

both works for me but not with any other user

Please advise

    Do others have permissions to '\\myfolder\' (by the way shoudn't the destination be defined as \\SomeServer\myfolder\ ?)

    hi, it was working fine next day, may be users need to reboot after permission set on their citrix profile :(
