Exporting Keyboards to Devices using Avalanche Licensed

If you have your devices licensed through Wavelink Avalanche, you can use the Productivity Pack Configuration payload to deliver hands-free app configuration to multiple devices at once.

Specific keyboards can also be associated with host profiles through the use of tags. If your custom keyboards contain tags, you can associate a host profile with the keyboard through the TE Host Profile Configuration payload in Avalanche.You can configure multiple host profile payloads for each device. You can only deploy one Productivity Pack Configuration payload to each device, which contains one keyboard bundle. These payloads can only be deployed to devices managed in Avalanche.

When you deliver a custom keyboard payload to mobile devices, all default keyboards in TE are overwritten and are no longer usable.

To export keyboards to the TE Client when the device has an Avalanche license:

1  Log in to the Avalanche Console.

2  From the Profiles tab, navigate to the folder where you want the payload created.

3  Click Add Payload in the Available Payloads panel.

4  The Payload dialog box appears. Select the iOS and Android option, and then the Productivity Pack Configuration payload to upload the keyboard bundle.

5  To use specific keyboards with a host profile, you must also create a TE Host Profile Configuration payload and add the desired keyboard tags. On each keyboard you can enter Keyboard Tags from the Editor panel of the Keyboard Editor, which are used in this payload. Only the custom keyboards on a mobile device containing the tags associated with a host profile payload are used during a session. When no keyboard tags are associated with a host profile, all keyboards will be used in their order of creation in the Keyboard Editor. If multiple keyboards share the same tags entered in this payload, keyboards are given priority based on their order of creation in the Keyboard Editor. For more information about keyboard tags, see Editor Panel.

6  Configure the options as desired and click Save.

7  From the Profiles tab, click Add Profile in the Available Profiles panel.

8  The New Profile dialog box appears. Click Application Configuration.

9  Create a name for the profile, then select the payload or payloads you want to associate with the profile. Save your changes.

10  Select the checkbox next to the name of the profile and click Apply in the Available Profiles panel.

11  Deploy your changes. The next time the device checks in, the payload is automatically downloaded. When the TE Client is launched, the new keyboard bundle is configured and used.
