The Default Person/Group plugin for MacroView DMF and MacroView Message defaults the value of person/group metadata properties to the current user when saving new documents and emails.
How it works
When a document or email is saved using drag and drop, any person/group metadata columns with internal column names corresponding to names that have been configured will set the default value to the current logged on user.
Important: This plug-in will only function once it is added to your MacroView DMF or Message licence. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain a licence for these plug-ins.
If you are running MacroView DMF or Message 8.6.103 or later you do not need to install this plug-in separately as it is already included in the DMF or Message installation and will become active once a license has been obtained. If you already have this extension installed and upgrade to DMF or Message 8.6.103 or later you can uninstall the separate add-in.
Close Microsoft Outlook, DMF Explorer (if applicable) and the MacroView DMF Local Service then download and run the Default Person Group installer that corresponds with your installation of Windows.
- MacroView DMF or MacroView Message 8.4.1298 or later
If after installing the plug-in is not available refer to how to activate a licensed DMF or Message plug-in.
Using a configuration files
MacroView DMF 8.8.520 and later versions support using a configuration file to deploy these settings.
The expected config filename/path is in the MacroView AppData store location “Extensions\MapFolderNameToFieldValue\configuration.json.config”
To deploy the configuration file, create a Folder in your Central Configuration Location called "DefaultPersonGroup" and save the file named configuration.json.config to this location
Sample configuration file
The format for the configuration files is Json.
"FieldNames" : [
Each value FieldName1, FieldName2, FieldName3 etc. is the internal name of the column.
Save the file as configuration.json.config
See the Setting a Central Configuration Location for more details on how to deploy the file.
Using registry setting
Specifying the internal column names of any person group fields that are to be defaulted to the current logged in user in the following registry key:
Multiple columns can be specified by separating them with a semi-colon.
Note: If both a configuration file and registry settings are defined the configuration files will override the registry
