There is some work in progress on this:

https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GUACAMOLE-38
https://github.com/apache/guacamole-client/pull/181

I am trying to see if we can use Guacamole to provide RDP access for

Ideally, you would pre-configure the connections for these people so they
have access to only their specific computer(s) after logging in to
Guacamole, pull that information from LDAP / AD, write an extension which
dynamically derives these connections on a per-user basis, etc. Having an
input box which allows users to connect to any arbitrary machine is not a
precondition for having 700 users.

Unless these users truly need absolutely unrestricted access to everything,
I would instead recommend leveraging Guacamole's gateway nature and taking
a more principle-of-least-privilege approach.
