August 19, 2019

The CheckCentral API provides an endpoint for adding users programmatically. All of the configuration options are available through the API, detailed below. To add a new user through the API, you will require an API token for your organization with Read/Write access. Organization administrators can create tokens through the API portal on your dashboard.

The endpoint is located at https://api.checkcentral.cc/createUser/?apiToken=APITOKEN where the APITOKEN placeholder is replaced with your valid token. The request must be made with the Content-Type header set to application/json. The body of the request should contain the properties below to configure the new user's settings. Any properties not passed will be set to their default value.

Working with Mouse Management

July 2, 2019

DisplayFusion has a variety of options on the Mouse Management tab that can help you use the mouse more efficiently across multiple monitors. Below, we'll break down each option and explain what they do.

  1. Allow the mouse wheel to scroll windows under the mouse cursor that are not in focus: This feature will allow you to scroll up or down in using the mouse wheel when hovering over any application window, even if it's not the currently focused window. This comes in handy in situations like having a Word document open on one screen, and a website open on the other screen. You can keep the keyboard focus on Word, but still scroll up/down in the web browser with the mouse. In Windows 7, DisplayFusion handles this behaviour. In Windows 10, this functionality is built-in, so the option in the DisplayFusion Settings just enables/disables the Windows option for this.
  2. Wrap mouse cursor around left/right monitor edges: Normally when you move the monitor to the far edge of a monitor, it stops. When this feature is enabled, moving the mouse to the far edge will cause it to wrap around to the other far edge. For example, with two monitors side-by-side, you can move the mouse to the far left of the left monitor, and it will continue moving on the far right of the right monitor.
  3. Wrap mouse cursor around top/bottom monitor edges: This feature behaves the same as the left/right wrapping (see above), but with the top/bottom instead.
  4. Only wrap mouse cursor when more than one monitor is connected: When either mouse wrapping option (see above) is enabled, this option will only allow the mouse to wrap if there's more than one monitor connected and enabled.
  5. Prevent mouse cursor from snagging on unaligned monitor edges: If you've got monitors with different screen resolutions, you may run into issues with the mouse getting stuck when trying to move it between the two monitors. This is because one monitor has a shorter edge than the other monitor, and Windows only allows the mouse to cross where both monitor edges line up. If you enable this feature, you can cross the mouse over at any part of either monitor edge.
  6. Prevent mouse cursor from sticking in Sticky Corners: Windows will catch the mouse in the corners to prevent accidental movement to the other monitor when intending to click on elements in the corners (Start button, window close button, show desktop button). Enabling this feature will allow you to move the mouse to the other monitor without it getting caught in the corners.

If you have any questions at all about the Mouse Management features, or anything else, please feel free to contact us!

Introducing User Groups, Check Group Permissions & More!

July 2, 2019

We’re pleased to announce some great new CheckCentral features that have recently been rolled out. These new features make organizing your checks and users easier than ever.

NEW! Creating User Groups, Setting Security on Check Groups

It is now possible to manage access to your individual CheckCentral check groups thanks to the introduction of user groups, and check group permissions. To get started, simply head to the user groups page via the Organization tab to quickly create new user groups.

Create User Group
Create User Group

Once you have user groups created, they can be used to assign permissions to a check group. Simply visit the check groups page (under the Checks tab) and select the check group you’d like to modify the permissions for. You’ll see a Permissions section where you are able to add a permissions entry for your new user group, specifying what level of access that group should have.

Add Permission
Add Permission

NEW! Improved Organization via Labels

You can now set labels on your checks. Checks with the same label will be grouped together on the Dashboard and Checks page, allowing you to organize checks within a check group.

Check Labels
Check Labels

You’ll see the new Label field when creating or editing a check. You can also set labels in bulk via the Checks page.

Improvements to custom dashboards and more!

Custom dashboards can now be configured to only display specific check groups, making your custom dashboards even more flexible.

As always, we welcome your feedback about these updates, as well as the service as a whole, so please feel free to reach out.

Deploying DisplayFusion Compatibility Rules Using Group Policy Preferences

June 26, 2019

If you're running DisplayFusion in a corporate environment and need to centrally add Compatibility rules for specific applications, you can do this using Active Directory Group Policy Preferences.

The steps below will walk you through creating a Compatibility rule for Chrome that will disable the DisplayFusion TitleBar Buttons.

  1. Open the Group Policy Management Console.
  2. Add a new Group Policy Object for DisplayFusion and open it for editing.
  3. Expand the left tree down to User Configuration > Preferences > Windows Settings > Registry.
    The Registry Section of Group Policy
    The Registry Section of Group Policy
  4. Right-click in the right pane and choose New > Registry Item.
    The New Item Menu
    The New Item Menu
  5. Select "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" as the Hive, and set the "Key Path" to Software\Binary Fortress Software\DisplayFusion\Compatibility
  6. Set the "Value Name" to App_1_Path
  7. Set the "Value Data" to the path for the EXE you want to create the Compatibility settings for. You can also use wildcards, like so: *chrome.exe
    Adding the App Path
    Adding the App Path
  8. Add more Registry Items to the policy for the Compatibility settings you want to enable for this application. See the table below for a table of settings and their registry Value Name. Make sure to replace "X" in the Value Name with the number that matches the "App_X_Path" value created in step 6. Set the Value Data to 1 to enable the Compatibility setting.
    Adding a Compatibility Setting
    Adding a Compatibility Setting
  9. Repeat steps 4-8 for any other applications you want to create Compatibility rules for. Increase the number in the Value Names for whichever one you're working on. e.g. the second rule would be App_2_Path, the third rule would be App_3_Path, etc.

    The List of Added Settings
  10. When you're all done, make sure to link the GPO to an OU that has the DisplayFusion users in it so that they'll get the new policy the next time they logon.

Notes

Compatibility Settings and their Registry Value Names

The following table lists the names of the settings in the Compatibility rule edit window, and the corresponding registry Value Name. All registry values are type "String (REG_SZ)" and all of them use 0 for disabled, and 1 for enabled. Make sure to replace "X" with the number that matches the "App_X_Path" value you're adding this setting for.

Moving Different File Explorer Folder Windows with Trigger Rules

June 11, 2019

It is possible to configure multiple Trigger rules for different instances of the same application. In this example, we'll show you how to configure a Trigger rule for a specific folder in File Explorer. You can repeat the same steps for other folders as well, so that when you open the folders via desktop shortcuts, or DisplayFusion taskbar shortcuts, they'll automatically move to the location or monitor of your choice.

These same steps can apply to other applications that have different window titles. For example, you can have different Trigger rules for different files opened in Notepad.

  • Open the first folder and move it to the desired location and size.
  • On the DisplayFusion Settings > Triggers tab, click Add.
  • In the Match Conditions section, enable the "Process Filename" checkbox. Select File Explorer from the list in the "Select Application" window and click OK.
  • In the Match Conditions section, enable the checkbox for the "Window Text" field, and enter the name of the folder. (e.g. "Documents")
  • In the Actions section, click Add > Move Window to Specific Size and Location.
  • Drag the blue "target" icon and drop it on the window to get its size and location details.
  • Click OK, then OK again.
  • Repeat steps 1-7 for any other folder Triggers that you'd like to setup.
