Using a Global Settings project

To use the same settings with different hosts, create a Global Settings project with settings that can be distributed with multiple projects. Each device can only have one Global Settings project.

A Global Settings project has the following options:

Configuration password. Provide a custom password that device users must type before they can access the Client settings on the device. Use the Confirm Password text box to make sure you typed the password correctly.

The default password for editing the settings on the device is system.

Max sessions. The maximum number of concurrent sessions allowed.

Hide exit. Hides the Exit button from the menu.

Remove demo profile. Removes the demo profile from the device, so it no longer shows in the list of host profiles.

Lock task mode. The Velocity Client opens full screen, hides the taskbar and Start menu, prevents task switching and minimizing, and blocks Alt+Tab, Alt+F4, Alt+Space, and Ctrl+Esc. In order to exit the Client, the user must provide the program exit password. Only available for Velocity Clients installed on Windows 10.

Program exit password. A password required to exit the Client on Windows 10 machines when Lock task mode is enabled. By default, the program exit password is blank. Even if you do not specify a program exit password, the user is prompted to provide a password if they attempt to exit the Client.

Delete photos on exit. When all sessions are closed or the user taps Menu > Exit, photos that were taken using Velocity are deleted from local memory (com.wavelink.velocity/files/images). Only available for Velocity Clients installed on Android that are version 2.1.25 or later.

Clear Velocity from memory on exit. When the user taps Menu > Exit, Velocity is unloaded from memory. This ensures that credentials that were being stored in memory are not used for subsequent sessions. Only available for Velocity Clients installed on Android that are version 2.1.33 or later.

Key to switch to next session. The hex value for a key to switch to the next open session. For example: E040

Key to switch to previous session. The hex value for a key to switch to the previous open session. For example: E041

Enable diagnostic key test mode. Enables the Key Test Mode option in the menu on the Client. In Key Test Mode, when the user presses a key on the device, the screen displays the values for that key.

Diagnostic logging level. The level of messages written to the Client log file. By default, this is set to Warning. This setting can be applied to iOS, Android, and Windows Clients that are version 2.1.20 or newer. For information about other Client logging options, see Logging settings.

When you deploy a global settings project, those settings are applied for all host profiles used by the Velocity Client.
