Remote Client Customization

You can enable and disable client features by creating an administrator script in the admin console, then pushing it to client machines.

Fastpath: Admin Console: System > Settings > Jive for Outlook > Advanced

If you have many users of the Jive for Outlook client and you need to disable some of the features, you may want to create a script and push changes to the registry on each client computer. The script creates a series of keys on the client in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Jive or HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Jive. For a list of the keys and what they control, see Remote Client Customization Reference.

To see a list of features you can enable and disable, refer to this document in the Jive Community. Note that you must be a registered community user to see this document.

Note that changes you make to HKEY_CURRENT_USER will always override the settings in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.

You can select which features to enable and disable in the admin console and then generate a script using the following steps:

  1. Click System > Settings > Jive for Outlook > Advanced
  2. In the Shared and Outlook sections, select the settings you want to propagate to the client.
  3. Click Generate.
