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. Note that the changes you make to HKEY_CURRENT_USER always override the settings in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. For a list of the keys and what they control, see Remote client customization reference. For the list of features you can enable and disable, refer to Client installation parameters.

This feature is available from Jive for Outlook

You can select which features to enable and disable in the Admin Console and then generate a script by using the following steps:

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

This generates a settings.reg file to run on the clients' machines. The script updates the default settings for the Jive for Office and Jive for Outlook plugins.
