Table 1. Session Collaboration Policy Settings

Setting

Description

Allow inviting collaborators by e-mail

When enabled, you can send collaboration invitations by using an installed email application. When disabled, you cannot use email to invite collaborators, even if an email application is installed. This setting is enabled by default.

Allow inviting collaborators by IM

When enabled, you can send collaboration invitations by using an installed Instant Message (IM) application. When disabled, you cannot use IM to invite collaborators, even if an IM application is installed. This setting is enabled by default.

Separator used for multiple e-mail addresses in mailto: links

Configures the separator used for multiple e-mail addresses in mailto: links to allow better compatibility with various email clients. When not configured, the default value is a semicolon without a space to separate email addresses.

If your default email client does not allow a semicolon as a separator, try other combinations, such as a comma plus one space or semicolon plus one space.

Server URLs to include in invitation message

Allows you to override the default URL included in collaboration invitations. Set this value if users might use multiple server URLs, such as different URLs for different geographies, or different URLs for internal and external, or if users find that the invitations are not using the proper server URL in their deployment.

Turn off collaboration

When enabled, the Session Collaboration feature is turned off entirely. When disabled or not configured, you can control the feature at the farm or desktop pool level. This setting takes effect after you reboot the Horizon Agent machines.

Maximum number of invited collaborators

Specifies the maximum number of collaborators that you can invite to join a session. The default maximum is 5. The limit is 10.
