Teamviewer Alias command line options

bmic2006 Posts: 2 ✭✭

When assigning teamviewer using command line and the alias part we are using %computername%. Is there an option to set the alias to the full name of the user? I tried %fullname% but then that is literally how it displayed.

    Hello @bmic2006,

    Thank you for your message.

    Unfortunately, there are only 3 ways of attributing aliases to your devices.

    1. --alias (without value) → alias of the computer will be the TeamViewer ID
    2. --alias Text → alias of the computer will be "Text" (as an example)
    3. --alias parameter not specified → alias of this computer will be %computername%

    You will find all the information you need in our Knowledge Base article here: Assignment options for the deployment of TeamViewer

    I hope this could help. If not, do not hesitate to ask your questions here.
