Grey Out or Disable 'Set A Location' RRS feed

  • Question

  • 'm searching for a long time and can't find a solution.

    Does anyone knows if it is possible to grey out or disable set a location for a user by a regkey or OU setting?

    It is for domain computers, fat clients. 

    Regards,

  • Hi Revesh Manbodh,

     

    As far as I know, there isn’t a policy or a setting/regkey that can disable this feature.

    But in my opinion, I think it can be controlled since when you're logged in to a remote desktop connection or a virtual machine, Lync disables the Set Your Location field.

    You can also post this question in Develop forum, maybe you can find a solution or workaround.

     

    Best regards,

    Eric

  • Thanks for the answer, I knew almost for 100% that it was not possible with a policy setting or a regkey.

    Also I get your opinion, but if you search for a solution you can't get the right answer and I think it's not worth the time to search for an solution and it's worked as designed.

    But if anyone knows the solution I'll be happy to hear it.
