Additional registry setting configuration

The following table lists additional registry keys that provide additional Cisco Unified Personal Communicator customizations.

Table 5 Additional Registry Settings

Subkey Names

Description

AudioCustomRingtone

Cisco Unified Personal Communicator supports the use of custom ring tones. Cisco will provide a set of custom ringtones. Only these ringtones are supported.

The ringtone can be specified in a registry setting or in a directory named ringtone in the CSF appdata / roaming directory. The ringtone must be copied to that location by the administrator. To change a ringtone, the new file is copied into the correct location and the client restarted.

The default is that this subkey name is not used.

DeskphoneStartupMode

This key is used to start Cisco Unified Personal Communicator in deskphone mode. In a VDI environment the client needs to be started in deskphone mode. To meet this requirement, this registry subkey has been introduced.

If the value of this key is set to 1, the client will start in deskphone mode. If is not set, or has a value other than 1, the client will start up by using the last phone mode the client used during start up.

The default is that this subkey name is not used.

AutomaticTetheredPhoneSelection

This key is used to set the Automatic Tethered Phone Selection feature. Cisco Unified Personal Communicator users will often have multiple deskphone devices assigned to them but only one that is tethered to their workstation through an Ethernet cable. This feature ensures that the tethered phone is always chosen when a Cisco Unified Personal Communicator user enters deskphone mode.

This feature is disabled by default.

The following usage scenarios outline the operation of this feature when it is enabled through the registry:

  • If the user manually changes their deskphone device from the tethered device to a new one while the device is available, the new device will be chosen and automatic selection will be switched off.
  • If the user manually changes their deskphone device from tethered while the device is not available, the new phone device will be chosen but when the tethered phone becomes available again Cisco Unified Personal Communicator will automatically switch back to it.
  • If the user manually changes the deskphone device to tethered, automatic selection will be switched on.
  • If the user changes phone modes, automatic selection will be switched on.
    Note   

    This feature will also work if the user is logged in to their tethered phone with extension mobility.
