Preparation Steps for Migrating Quikscribe Profiles to Network Folder
Storing the individual user profile files in a common network folder will provide the ability to centrally manage the user profiles, instead of having to visit each user workstation to make or verify changes.
The QS Recorder creates a default user profile called ‘recorder.pfl’ with the initial installation. In order to store the profile in a common network folder, each profile will need to have a unique name associated with the user, keeping the file extension “.pfl”
For example, author John Smith would have a new profile name such as ‘Smith_John.pfl’. You may use any naming convention that makes sense for your organization, just as long as each user has a profile file with a unique file name. For larger organizations, using the lastname_firstname or lastname_initial convention will make it easier to retrieve the profiles using the QS Profile Editor, as the list is sorted alphabetically.
This is all that needs to be done to prepare the user profile for the migration. The Silent Install script will capture the user profile and store it in the newly defined network folder, according to the defined path in the Silent Install script.
