Nov 10, 2022

Watch this IGEL Tech-Tips Tuesday video to learn how to configure the prioritization of audio devices on IGEL OS. 

Unified Communications is widely used in today’s world. The requirement to configure audio devices is a must. In the following video, you will learn how to prioritize audio devices found on IGEL OS devices.

Presented by Sebastian Perusat, IGEL Community FELLOW.

In this video, Sebastien will teach you how to:

  • 00:00 Introduction
  • 02:00 Check device recognition
  • 03:05 Check devices in Sound Manager
  • 04:32 Set the Prio locally
  • 05:30 Create a profile for it
  • 08:08 Use Classes instead of devices
  • 09:46 Explain how the Automatic Prio works

00:00:02.830 –> 00:00:17.230
Patrick Toner: Hello, everyone! Welcome to I, Jo Weekly podcast uh this episode sixty-seven. I am your uh guest Host today, Patrick Toner, joined by two regulars and good friends from I gel Sebastian Paris.

00:00:17.290 –> 00:00:18.680
Patrick Toner: Uh guys, how you doing,

00:00:20.000 –> 00:00:21.349
Sebastien Perusat: Chris, You first

00:00:21.470 –> 00:00:39.909
Chris Feeney: nice fall for the people watching You’re in a beautiful park right now. Nice fall forlets. Yeah. Set the mood right. Uh: good uh nice fall day here election day in America. Uh so get out and vote if you haven’t already. Make sure you get that

00:00:39.970 –> 00:00:56.329
Chris Feeney: um midterms. Yes, like It’s you, said no one uh how politics go on in America here. But uh, yes, uh. So we are electing the entire United States House Representatives or Uh. Some are getting reelected, some are not

00:00:56.550 –> 00:01:11.090
Chris Feeney: uh, and then the Senate. It’s about a third of the Senate roughly, and then, of course, local and state uh offices. But it’s a beautiful day here in the North Carolina uh fall. Colors are out leaves are falling, and

00:01:11.570 –> 00:01:17.059
Chris Feeney: uh blowing leaves and join the join this change of season. So

00:01:17.250 –> 00:01:37.239
Patrick Toner: you know, I’ve realized, Chris uh being in Florida. Now we do not have that uh, even in northeast Florida, where I’m. Where i’m located, we have a lot of like pine trees. All the oak trees uh nothing changes here. Um! And it wasn’t until I went up to Charlotte a few weeks back that I saw. You know the nice fall leads and everything uh it’s kind of nice. But

00:01:37.250 –> 00:01:53.240
Patrick Toner: um, i’m also not really missing the temperature. I would be in right now, but still up in New Jersey. So yeah, I would say I was in at the beginning of October, right after the hurricane blew through. I was down in Miami. It was beautiful. No humidity was very nice. Uh. About a month later I came back down

00:01:53.250 –> 00:02:06.120
Patrick Toner: to South Florida, and the humidity was back, and I was like, This is miserable. It’s a it’s one thing that humidity is a whole other animal really

00:02:06.350 –> 00:02:12.560
Patrick Toner: all right. Well, hey, Seb, how you doing, man, how’s that? How’s everything going in Europe? Everything good

00:02:12.570 –> 00:02:42.559
Sebastien Perusat: on Europe. We’re doing almost almost good. We have also, for right now. So I just do. Did some math with my uh converter, so we have fourteen. The users which are so fifty-seven degrees Flor. On that. Uh so it’s it’s acceptable it’s not too cold not to warm, so nothing about to be to we could complaining about. So uh, not a lot of rain. We’re doing fine. Uh, we have a commute session this evening, I mean, for those of you who are not part of the at a community. Um, I’m definitely engaging you

00:02:42.830 –> 00:02:49.249
Sebastien Perusat: uh join us. We have a great session today for the insiders who will share some uh strategic

00:02:49.260 –> 00:03:19.250
Sebastien Perusat: choose choices. We made for fully two to one hundred and twenty-three. So stay awake. We will share a great inside a couple of days uh in the as a community. So because that’s uh, i’m doing extremely good. Um, leaving today, for in the evening time for a stand up comedy, together with my with my wife, so I mean more commonly than we have in the edge of community already. Um, having fun so

00:03:19.260 –> 00:03:37.079
Sebastien Perusat: doing, lighting as a as a stand up Comedian. I kind of to really imagine someone wanting to listen to me. That’s uh, yeah, I don’t know. I think you’d be really good at it. I don’t think so. But, thanks, I appreciate that.

00:03:37.310 –> 00:03:53.130
Patrick Toner: Very good. Hopefully, You guys enjoy that uh? Sounds like a nice night. What? What? How, How how does it get by? You said Like in the winter time, what it? What is it generally looking like? Uh, uh, you mean from a temperature perspective. I don’t know. I see you doing your

00:03:53.140 –> 00:03:58.180
Sebastien Perusat: yeah, I I would say. Usually We’ about zero degrees. So um,

00:03:58.390 –> 00:04:16.900
Sebastien Perusat: yeah, So from it it’s about five degrees would be forty uh uh. It would be thirty-two. So that’s our usual temperatures. Not extremely cold, since we’re in the mid of Germany. Um! But if you go to the south or to the north, it can be even worse. So for us to just

00:04:16.910 –> 00:04:27.359
Sebastien Perusat: if if you get some snow you might be lucky in the last five years we got snow three or four times. Not more than that, and not really a huge amount.

00:04:27.470 –> 00:04:41.969
Patrick Toner: Yeah, I’ve snow something. I’m definitely. Not. Uh I don’t miss one bit uh I’ve shared that many times here, but selling my snow blower uh getting rid of my snow shovels uh the salt all the things I had to offload out of my garage. I was very happy to do that.

00:04:42.310 –> 00:04:59.030
Patrick Toner: Um. But anyway, well, very good. So So uh for everyone listening, as said, mention of the the I. You know a lot of things go on the agile community definitely. Check it out. If you’re not in the agile community. If you listen to this podcast, you’re not in the agile community. I’ll find that a little strange. Actually, there’s probably not too many people to fit in that camp.

00:04:59.040 –> 00:05:14.920
Patrick Toner: Um, definitely uh use the Igl community. I joke meeting dot com uh sets doing a great job over there and just just giving us a lot of good content, and it’s relevant, because today is our podcast edition. I’m sorry our ideal community edition of the Podcast

00:05:14.930 –> 00:05:23.529
Patrick Toner: Um, where we cover uh different community blogs that you know mostly set. But is there anyone else that that write them, or you kind of write all of them at this point.

00:05:23.660 –> 00:05:36.779
Sebastien Perusat: No, no, uh! We have a lot of people who are also writing uh content, and the only tasks that i’m doing in that case is taking the content, putting that on our block side from the video block at the moment.

00:05:36.790 –> 00:05:56.090
Sebastien Perusat: Mostly me. But we have also great people like, for, like Bradstick with delivering great content when it comes to Avd and um fido the two factors notification. So there we are, sharing from content from all of us, but from the pure creation of lock myself and from the block perspective

00:05:56.100 –> 00:06:10.519
Chris Feeney: a lot of people in that of community uh wanting to to share uh what they did, and Patrick just a little teaser as we enter uh the remainder of this year, and turn the corner into two thousand and twenty-three

00:06:10.660 –> 00:06:17.200
Chris Feeney: uh i’ll be getting with you. Sub: certainly uh to put some more content together.

00:06:17.230 –> 00:06:21.730
Chris Feeney: Um: yeah, More specifically on some areas of the

00:06:21.840 –> 00:06:24.940
Chris Feeney: interest in some new stuff that we’re working on.

00:06:26.000 –> 00:06:33.280
Chris Feeney: If those are uh folks listening that are that are in the in bravada camp uh having uh worked with that product

00:06:33.360 –> 00:06:34.560
Chris Feeney: uh

00:06:34.700 –> 00:06:40.799
Chris Feeney: we got some stuff brewing, and we’ll be able to share more of that here. So some some good stuff coming.

00:06:40.900 –> 00:06:43.520
Chris Feeney: Nice? Yes, very good.

00:06:44.360 –> 00:06:46.030
Chris Feeney: There you go, all right.

00:06:46.670 –> 00:07:02.210
Patrick Toner: This one is just as important because i’m having a problem with Rdp. Audio. So let’s talk

00:07:02.220 –> 00:07:17.800
Patrick Toner: that uh, I would say, maybe you know we’ve been talking about unified communications. That’s probably the biggest hot topic of the last, you know. Maybe two years. And I would, I would say, probably even still, from till today. Right? That’s the conversation I want to have with every single customer that we work with.

00:07:17.810 –> 00:07:24.959
Patrick Toner: Um, especially if they’re Nigel customer. But even if they’re not. I mean it’s. It’s just a huge, huge topic that everybody needs more than ever.

00:07:24.970 –> 00:07:42.160
Patrick Toner: And of course, one of the major components of that is the audio device. Um, i’m actually coming. We’re talking a little bit before this, so I’ve got my epo headset. Um, I know all. I think definitely, Chris, that you have one as well. Um, you know, the My had said. Multiple headsets.

00:07:42.490 –> 00:07:44.510
Patrick Toner: They really are the best,

00:07:44.590 –> 00:07:49.529
Chris Feeney: you know. We should really have some sponsors for this podcast right? I mean,

00:07:49.660 –> 00:08:07.869
Patrick Toner: I’m sure. There’s yeah, it’s It’s It’s it’s it’s it’s. We need to get. We need to get a food sponsored a drink sponsor and a and some technology sponsorships here. That’ll be nice, especially if they send us food and drinks. Um, That’s right.

00:08:07.880 –> 00:08:15.370
Patrick Toner: I’m thinking of my mistakes. I’m thinking about how stakes Maybe it’s getting that. I’ll talk to our digital marketing guys who we can do

00:08:15.380 –> 00:08:30.229
Patrick Toner: if that guy on it. Case, if you’re listening, we’ve got the big ideas here. Um: But yeah. So so guys obviously audio devices, a huge part of everybody’s strategy. Um, specifically when you get to the igos um.

00:08:30.330 –> 00:08:45.510
Patrick Toner: It’s a little different sometimes that people are used to people a lot of time. They used to have it in windows, endpoint Linux handles things a little differently. I gel has uh has some tools built in that helps you do things like prioritize devices. Um, and set is done. A really nice blog here

00:08:45.520 –> 00:08:55.860
Patrick Toner: uh that just goes into it. So i’m gonna go ahead and kick this video off. Um, I don’t know if you want to introduce anything else that i’m missing there. Um! But i’ll go ahead and kick it off. And uh,

00:08:56.950 –> 00:09:12.700
Sebastien Perusat: there we go, just a few things, maybe, since we already started discussion outside of the podcast, together with Chris and and Patrick. Uh. We have one starting point where everything can break or work extremely good,

00:09:22.690 –> 00:09:31.820
Sebastien Perusat: where lots of recommendations are made regarding how to set up your zoom on Vdi, your teams, you webex, et cetera.

00:09:32.070 –> 00:09:50.590
Sebastien Perusat: If the headset is not working locally or is not a set property locally. There is a high chance that it will not work in this session, not saying every time, but it. There is items. So first thing that I would like to say is always test your headset, and if you have the ability to try first with a

00:09:50.600 –> 00:10:20.590
Sebastien Perusat: why, everyone with a was recorded one, I would definitely recommend to do so, not saying that wireless headphones are complicated, but sometimes you might have all the issues sitting in, so started with a coded one like a usb. One Um is my best best to start with, just to check that everything is working, and then you can try to fiddle down all the other security settings and all the other um peripherals that you want to integrate. So that’s just a first thing I would like to to to share the device with condition. Look!

00:10:32.750 –> 00:10:34.339
Sebastien Perusat: There was one,

00:10:34.950 –> 00:10:36.480
Sebastien Perusat: I would say, one

00:10:36.720 –> 00:10:44.120
Sebastien Perusat: exception, because we had the discussion with Chris just before to just before starting, which is called the native Usb redirection,

00:10:44.180 –> 00:10:55.070
Sebastien Perusat: which is mostly used to redirect kind of physically a device from your local Usb port to a virtual usb part of your Vdi.

00:10:55.080 –> 00:11:10.239
Sebastien Perusat: It’s not. It’s not needed um. But in that case we usually Don’t recommend to redirect this way of the audio and video device. So just because you will break any kind of cover optimization that is in

00:11:10.250 –> 00:11:20.689
Sebastien Perusat: the place of your teams of your zoom, because they are relying on the local users, and if the device reader to the session, it will just work there, and not in the second session, and from a second thing one hundred and fifty.

00:11:20.740 –> 00:11:36.149
Sebastien Perusat: The native Usb. Direction channel is usually not optimized, so you will lose all this real time called your video transfer. Nothing would not work just saying it might not be smooth, as it would be on a uh, or not optimized generally

00:11:36.260 –> 00:11:50.169
Sebastien Perusat: so just. That was just one one introduction to that extremely huge Uh topic. So on the video itself, I’m starting was explaining. We was explaining why, using that in which manner But

00:11:50.420 –> 00:11:53.100
Sebastien Perusat: one thing I can’t already tell you, is

00:11:53.540 –> 00:12:03.320
Sebastien Perusat: It’s extremely complex. It’s extremely complex, because no window, no device is working from one version to another to one hundred percent

00:12:03.360 –> 00:12:04.660
Sebastien Perusat: um,

00:12:04.670 –> 00:12:26.150
Sebastien Perusat: especially if it comes to to wireless device. So going through the step that I’m describing in the uh in the first about the video, So it’s about meant to. We from override from the time time schedule, I’m checking uh with the system information tool, which is, if not disabled by a profile a wide up in your stop menu under the um system, tab,

00:12:26.160 –> 00:12:38.550
Sebastien Perusat: or you can check if the Usb device like, Yeah, your webcam, Us that was recognize from the system itself. And if it’s already there, there is a high chance to get it working uh on the next level.

00:12:41.580 –> 00:12:49.440
Sebastien Perusat: As soon as we check that on minutes free, we have the sound preferences, which is,

00:12:49.450 –> 00:13:06.519
Sebastien Perusat: uh, what you already know from uh, from windows, from your Mac Os is basically where you choose your standard input and output device, and the volume the input volume, or also test if the device is working or not. So

00:13:06.540 –> 00:13:22.900
Sebastien Perusat: in a non-appliance mode it’s in your task bar. It’s a little speaker symbol that you can just right click and say um settings. And then look at the preference for me about and checking which output device you want to use.

00:13:23.830 –> 00:13:43.310
Sebastien Perusat: Now you may task. That’s a great thing. But what happens if I have a webcam which is having um a microphone. If I have a headset which is having a microphone and uh a headphone. And lastly, maybe also an internal speaker. Obviously, you can use to you them at one time.

00:13:43.320 –> 00:13:49.230
Sebastien Perusat: At the same time you can just choose one default output and one default. Input

00:13:49.790 –> 00:13:52.510
Sebastien Perusat: But in that case you have to do that menu in that tool.

00:13:52.710 –> 00:14:01.190
Sebastien Perusat: And now, coming back to you how most of our users are working most of our user working inside of citric session of our Ip session

00:14:01.350 –> 00:14:03.659
Sebastien Perusat: and will not see the local sound manager.

00:14:04.440 –> 00:14:15.649
Sebastien Perusat: That’s right. That’s go back to that question in a couple of minutes, just saying if you want to test it, test it locally first to check if everything is working, and then we can go the next step.

00:14:16.780 –> 00:14:30.819
Patrick Toner: So yeah, that’s That’s a great point There said. You know It’s kind of a a lot of things right? Um always check locally. First, It It really is a huge uh just the logical way you want to troubleshoot things with? I don’t know.

00:14:32.400 –> 00:14:33.320
Sebastien Perusat: Yeah,

00:14:33.520 –> 00:14:45.899
Sebastien Perusat: it just makes life easier, Right? It just makes it easier to to debug or to find the the root cause, where the same discussion with a couple of customers in the in the azure community, and also with the Azure precess, and then services folks,

00:14:46.020 –> 00:15:03.650
Sebastien Perusat: we have users. I’m. Just joining to another topic for a second. Uh, we’re using the Usb. Access control, which is an extremely powerful Yeah, I would say some uh security driven settings that you can make on the to block the access to specific device classes to specific devices.

00:15:04.490 –> 00:15:07.280
Sebastien Perusat: But if you already make a mistake there

00:15:07.630 –> 00:15:18.070
Sebastien Perusat: and then you can break everything which is happening behind that configuration. Step. So if you are excluding by mistake your audio device, and that usb access is already one hundred.

00:15:18.160 –> 00:15:36.490
Sebastien Perusat: Well, then, you can do whatever you like on the optimization side. It will never work, because the operating system itself will block already the access to that kind of device. So just saying, Start always from scratch, if you can, from a factory to reset device and restart from scratch, test your device, and then add

00:15:36.640 –> 00:15:46.750
Sebastien Perusat: your configuration step by step, to check. If maybe one missed configuration or one back happens also on our side, it may be blocking the the execution of your test.

00:15:47.210 –> 00:15:51.999
Chris Feeney: That’s a great point. I was just thinking about this, too. I’m all you’re talking. I’m i’m um

00:15:52.280 –> 00:15:55.390
Chris Feeney: on my igl laptop here. I’ve got

00:15:55.840 –> 00:16:05.889
Chris Feeney: uh the sound preferences up, and I I plugged in, you know headphones just immediately to see what a does it get picked up, and i’m in the audio. Jack Port here. Not not a usb scenario.

00:16:06.040 –> 00:16:07.040
Chris Feeney: Um

00:16:07.160 –> 00:16:22.869
Chris Feeney: uh! It did pick it up. So now i’m gonna and it seems to. How would I know that it’s now the default? I would imagine it just it should automatically recognize that. Uh, there’s headphones plugged into the audio, Jack, and that would be now the default uh output device.

00:16:23.460 –> 00:16:27.699
Chris Feeney: Um! That would be expected. Behavior correct for the audio, Jack.

00:16:28.070 –> 00:16:48.049
Sebastien Perusat: That would be um, And usually the defines that you selected in your In your list is the device which is selected to be the primary one. So if it’s blue um, I mean group background it blue selected. Then it should be the device which would be used by the sound manager itself.

00:16:48.110 –> 00:16:53.610
Chris Feeney: Got it? Yeah, That’s i’m looking at now. As soon as I plug it in it. It it turned blue and um

00:16:53.660 –> 00:16:55.950
Sebastien Perusat: sounds good. Yeah. Fantastic

00:16:57.000 –> 00:17:08.300
Patrick Toner: um kind of segways into the screen here, right? Because, you know ultimately, you know your point of I I talk to customers um frequently. Um. And i’m sure you guys do as well. But

00:17:08.310 –> 00:17:25.269
Patrick Toner: you know headsets Have you know, microphones built in, and sometimes they’re working on a device they have usb speakers. But there’s a built in speaker in the in the device. So there’s a speaker in the in the Monitor. Um, and so it can get a little confusing at times. Right? We have multiple input and output devices.

00:17:25.450 –> 00:17:32.060
Patrick Toner: Um, So you know, I see in the video here we’re We’re really getting into. How to. How do we set the priority? What are your What are your recommendations on that.

00:17:32.330 –> 00:17:47.779
Sebastien Perusat: Um. I’ll just go to this thing where we are at the moment, so we just jump from the sound preferences back to the I just set up the local configuration tool that you have usually on your azure operating system when pressing control out and S.

00:17:47.790 –> 00:18:02.830
Sebastien Perusat: Uh your user will not have a lot to do there, because you are doing everything by a profile. But sometimes you want to test something by your own as an administrator. That tool That’s where we at the moment. So go if you go to Ssr. And then some preference and options. If I remember right,

00:18:02.840 –> 00:18:08.960
Sebastien Perusat: you have the ports name, and for the output and for the default input.

00:18:09.030 –> 00:18:24.850
Sebastien Perusat: So that’s where you can say, Do I want to have a specific device name set by default and use, but default on every boot up in my case. I selected. I’m just jumping to the zoom right now. Um, the um

00:18:24.930 –> 00:18:27.020
Sebastien Perusat: uh Hdmi output.

00:18:27.960 –> 00:18:43.649
Sebastien Perusat: If you have the exact device in that you want to use, and you’re sure that this is always connected you that form, and you can just paste it into your your proof, and saying the Vcm. Twenty-eight, three or five, a G. Ma one, or whatever uh you want to use.

00:18:43.660 –> 00:18:52.709
Sebastien Perusat: Yeah, the default one if you put that applies a profile and send it back to you to the endpoint. It would always pick up that sound or put a song as soon as possible.

00:18:53.230 –> 00:19:10.939
Sebastien Perusat: At the same time you can do the same also for the input So if you have, like Patrick mentioned your head phone and you have your logitech, whatever uh webcam, and you always want the logitech to pick up. Then you can specify the logitech four K. Whatever name, and it will pick up that one

00:19:10.950 –> 00:19:27.559
Sebastien Perusat: just two things in that um in that uh specific area. First of all, the name has to match one to one What is found locally in salt manager. So be careful. It should be, say, get sensitive. And if there was a space also user space uh in in between,

00:19:28.570 –> 00:19:47.979
Sebastien Perusat: my opinion, is putting a device in that the fee can be. Yeah, I will not say dangerous, because you’re not timing your device, but can be quite uh surprising to the user because he’s not knowing every time. If the webcam will not change, or if he will connect another device to and want to change his headset.

00:19:47.990 –> 00:19:54.469
Sebastien Perusat: So my recommendation, and then uh to jump to the minutes. Uh, that’s jump to

00:19:55.210 –> 00:20:09.660
Sebastien Perusat: hold on a second, two minutes, eight, thirty, where I would choose the port name instead of the device name. So we have there usually the automatic detection which is using

00:20:10.060 –> 00:20:23.449
Sebastien Perusat: the automatic order and then using the device name in our case, you can say, Hey, Why not using as soon as the Us. Booth up? Always the Hgmi or display port output, because that’s where my best speakers are connected to,

00:20:24.040 –> 00:20:39.189
Sebastien Perusat: or in case I’ve connected uh speakers by Usb. Ajack you that one, or even better, if you have a headphone connected via wire or via way or less. Say, use my headphones as a default output, and that’s something which is extremely handy. Um,

00:20:39.200 –> 00:20:55.550
Sebastien Perusat: Um, yeah, I would tell you about a little bit more about a feature in a couple of seconds. Um, but just saying that if you, as a default sound, it put them that to default headset microphone. Then you have the best experience for the user usually that everything is pre selected for him of all

00:20:55.580 –> 00:21:04.929
Sebastien Perusat: without having him or her. The need to switch to the sound manager which might not be available because you are using improvada or appliance mode.

00:21:05.020 –> 00:21:23.699
Sebastien Perusat: So you can make the life of your user easier if you preset that in a profile. No, coming back to a small hint, because it’s only a playable on Citrix, but still it’s a feature which is not when non, and which was a little bit buggy in the past, but which was extremely well right now.

00:21:23.710 –> 00:21:26.189
Sebastien Perusat: Um! I will just tell you

00:21:26.320 –> 00:21:37.809
Sebastien Perusat: and the audience. If you never work with that in the system. Registry of Ig. In a profile, you have a specific section, and one is called Ica module, and then call your redirection. V. Four.

00:21:38.010 –> 00:21:40.539
Sebastien Perusat: I know the name is not really helpful, but

00:21:40.970 –> 00:21:52.619
Sebastien Perusat: if you work with Citrix and with Nigel for a couple of years. You know that you have in the understand that when you saw manage of windows only the Citrix Hdx, I would you input. And output.

00:21:53.770 –> 00:22:11.819
Sebastien Perusat: We’re just not so helpful for the end she was on, because he is not knowing if it’s a headset if it’s the uh Hdmi part which is used just citrics at X audio. If you want to make that available to the end to that, you can change it in his terminus or vdi session of citrix instead of the windowsall manager.

00:22:12.230 –> 00:22:22.440
Sebastien Perusat: Check this register key. Ica dot module dot audio redirection before, and then you will have the same ability to change between different out and input devices

00:22:22.480 –> 00:22:25.899
Sebastien Perusat: inside of such a session. Was it in the need to switch locally?

00:22:26.470 –> 00:22:36.310
Patrick Toner: And it said, That’s not in the video here, right? So you go through that. I see a module audio redirection before

00:22:36.380 –> 00:22:41.999
Sebastien Perusat: It’s not part of the video, because I really focus on the local approach and the local priorization.

00:22:42.030 –> 00:22:43.260
Sebastien Perusat: But

00:22:43.760 –> 00:22:58.190
Sebastien Perusat: yeah, I’m sure. We can definitely have another session on how to set up um the unified calm stuff. I know that’s the last already. The session with you, if I remember right. Um. But the audio redirection before is hidden. Champion, I would say in the citrix world.

00:22:58.480 –> 00:23:04.230
Patrick Toner: Yeah, that’s a that’s a great tip, I I think. Um, we did a workshop uh with um

00:23:04.420 –> 00:23:22.349
Patrick Toner: uh Mars. I was blocked there, and I think he went through that exactly. I think there’s also one for the webcam, if i’m not mistaken. So and and I I’ve been using that personally. Uh it’s really cool, because in teams I can actually just select which device I want as if I was in a windows endpoint. Um: Yeah, really, really great feature.

00:23:22.360 –> 00:23:25.190
Patrick Toner: Um. So yeah, Great Great great tip there.

00:23:26.920 –> 00:23:43.750
Patrick Toner: So, guys, you know, let me ask you this, you know. Um. So this is the way to automate it. How many of your customers, you know, like I I in the past utilize a quick settings um with certain customers where they say, Look, I just want the end user to have access to certain settings. Um,

00:23:43.760 –> 00:23:52.619
Patrick Toner: you know. That might be a good topic to cover if we have any different from settings and quick settings and how to leverage that. But yeah, that that’s kind of maybe a little bit more of a a looser way to do it. Hey?

00:23:52.630 –> 00:24:08.689
Patrick Toner: Give this to your end. User they know where to click a button, and then they can go into the just. Those settings right. You don’t publish anything else to them except for what you want, so all they would have is the audio settings that go in there Make some changes hit default um, you know. So there’s kind of a few ways to do this uh,

00:24:08.870 –> 00:24:10.970
Patrick Toner: uh, any thoughts on that guys.

00:24:11.250 –> 00:24:18.839
Chris Feeney: Yeah, The last time I had a customer that wanted had a used case for that, we was basically there traveling

00:24:19.310 –> 00:24:29.779
Chris Feeney: um laptops, and they were accessing a citrix desktop. Well, they might be based on the east coast and happened to be in Central or West or Pacific Time Zone,

00:24:29.820 –> 00:24:43.179
Chris Feeney: and they were noticing that if they’re out West and they go to check email or something like that, that the time was pulling off of whatever it was set, and so they wanted to be able to,

00:24:43.400 –> 00:24:49.020
Chris Feeney: you know, have them make or modify a change like the time zone, and uh,

00:24:49.230 –> 00:24:50.330
Chris Feeney: and

00:24:50.480 –> 00:25:09.130
Chris Feeney: that way. When it synced up with Citrix, it would recognize and say, Oh, it’s actually, you know they’re out on the West coast today. There it’s it’s, you know. Six thirty am right now out there. So something simple like that. Uh, we figured out how to how to how to make that work. Uh. But it was definitely the quick settings feature,

00:25:09.270 –> 00:25:11.099
Chris Feeney: uh which obviously you can

00:25:11.220 –> 00:25:14.689
Chris Feeney: do a similar thing with the devices there, which I think would be very handy.

00:25:15.510 –> 00:25:17.399
Chris Feeney: I can continue flexibility.

00:25:17.490 –> 00:25:18.820
Yeah. Sorry.

00:25:19.400 –> 00:25:27.770
Sebastien Perusat: Maybe one one either on my side regarding Os twelve and the approach uh on on quick settings.

00:25:27.780 –> 00:25:45.960
Sebastien Perusat: I got the feedback and the but also my presets time that the quick settings isn’t really handy and really um user friendly to use, and I mean it’s. It’s partially right. You have the same a structure on the same view as not just set up, but just reduce the specific part of the configuration.

00:25:46.000 –> 00:26:14.910
Sebastien Perusat: Um, this might change a lot in os twelve, and I just have seen some some approach to that or a that’s a following, and I can tell you that it’s definitely a way more user-friendly than it wasn’t the quick setup. But for the moment it’s, unfortunately only a way to do that. Besides, um. If you’re skilled in writing some uh national shell script uh you can do which is called the Zen T. Or a yet selection window, where you can say

00:26:14.920 –> 00:26:15.840
Sebastien Perusat: the

00:26:16.030 –> 00:26:36.859
Sebastien Perusat: what, whatever setting you want to do, and the users just have to click one or two, and it would be applied by using the set param or set user power or set group for you, depending on where you want to to set that device uh setting in the registry. But that’s really the high level for so that user display switcher, sound manager, and the quick settings

00:26:36.870 –> 00:26:38.750
Sebastien Perusat: is the only way to go at the moment.

00:26:40.070 –> 00:26:52.700
Patrick Toner: Yeah. Well, you know, I I think. Uh, I always appreciate it when you give us a little teaser for os twelve right? I mean you. You’re uh you’re you’re you’re able to get your hands on kind of everything going on there. So uh, you know,

00:26:52.710 –> 00:27:06.269
Patrick Toner: definitely, definitely Hope Hope Hope you keep uh keep us in the loop here on the podcast, you know. Because yeah, some of those features, right? Um, you know. Yeah, you know, we’re gonna we’re almost speaking a different language. If we’re talking about quick settings and

00:27:06.280 –> 00:27:17.720
Patrick Toner: um that goes away. And I was twelve where it’s rebranded and has different functions. Um, yeah, I think that’s probably a welcome change uh from my perspective, but for sure that that’s good stuff.

00:27:20.360 –> 00:27:31.510
Patrick Toner: All right. Well, listen, guys. Um, you know. I think you know this topic uh we kind of covered that all you can cover on it. Um. Surely useful. I think everybody kind of needs to um.

00:27:31.530 –> 00:27:46.259
Patrick Toner: You’ll have a strategy if you’re not driving. You have to have some sort of strategy. How you’re going to get a default audio device uh set up. So So I went through the automatic ones to talk through more of a user based manual way to do it. Um,

00:27:46.270 –> 00:27:54.420
Patrick Toner: but for sure, if you you know, if you kind of just throw everything out there, and you don’t have a strategy. You’re definitely going to one of the issues. So um good stuff guys

00:27:54.430 –> 00:28:07.040
Patrick Toner: uh, you know a couple of things uh coming up here, and I don’t know guys i’ll. I’ll give you a minute, too, if there’s anything in Nigel you want to kind of plug. Um uh, Chris and I were talking before the podcast. We’re gonna have this integrra um

00:28:07.050 –> 00:28:20.289
Patrick Toner: roadshow coming up uh we’re gonna be uh we’re basically doing uh the take our user. Groups now based on territory. So this Integra um user group of Florida is coming up. I’ to share the screen out

00:28:20.490 –> 00:28:28.480
