How can I automatically activate the WiseStamp app for my employees?
After deploying the Outlook app for desktop via GPO distribution, the app needs to be activated on your employees' machines by providing the activation code (also known as the login code). The Auto Login script automatically activates the app for your employees, enabling them to use the app. The script is recommended when quick onboarding is essential or when you prefer not to involve your employees in-app activation. This article goes over everything you need to know to successfully use the Auto Login script.
Before you begin, make sure that you have successfully installed the WiseStamp app on your employees' machines using GPO deployment. (Check our GPO installation article for instructions.)
In addition, you will need the following components:
- The script file: Download the PowerShell script and save it in the shared folder you created for the GPO deployment.
- The WiseStamp token: You will need this token to add the script to your Group Policy. Please obtain the required token by reaching out to the WiseStamp support team (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Running the Script
Follow these steps to add and run the Auto Login script:
- From the Server Manager app, navigate to Tools > Group Policy Management.
- Right-click on the group policy you created and select Edit.
- In the Group Policy Management Editor, navigate to User Configuration > Policies > Windows Settings. Then, select Scripts (Logon/Logoff) and click Logon.
- In the Logon Properties dialog, select the PowerShell Scripts tab, and click Add.
- In the popup that opens, configure the following settings:
- Script Name: The path to the script file.
- Script Parameters: This is the WiseStamp token that you obtained from the WiseStamp support team. Enter the token using the following syntax:
Make sure there is a space between the token parameter and the token string. For example:
- In the Group Policy Management Editor, navigate to User Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows PowerShell and select Turn on Script Execution.
- In the dialog that opens, select the Enabled radio button and the Allow all scripts option.
Then, click Apply and OK.
- In the Group Policy Management Editor, navigate to Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Group Policy and select Configure Logon Script Delay.
- In the dialog that opens, select the Disabled radio button. Then, click Apply and OK.
- To push your group policy changes, open the command line and run the following command:
Using the App
Once the WiseStamp app is activated on your employees' machines, the Teams Signature will be added to all new emails, replies, and forwards. To successfully use the app, employees should make sure the Use in Outlook checkbox is selected.
They should then verify that Teams Signature is the selected signature.
