Synappx Collaboration Hub (Beta)

System Requirements

Prerequisites for Synappx Collaboration Hub (Microsoft 365 and Windows Settings)

The following components should be completed before the installation and configuration of the Synappx Collaboration Hub. For enhanced security with optimal usability, a Windows configuration is recommended.

  1. Synappx Go and Synappx Meeting License
    The following license is required to use the Synappx Collaboration Hub. Packaged licenses are available. Please contact an authorized Sharp dealer for more details.
    1. Synappx Go User license applied to each user

    2. Synappx Meeting Room license applied to the Workspace
  2. Meeting Room resources (Required for Microsoft 365)

    When Synappx Meeting is used in the "Workspace" mode, it is required that Microsoft 365 has a room resource calendar and Office 365 license applied to the resource account. This account is used to log in to Synappx Meeting installed on the in-room PC and Microsoft Teams (when installed on the in-room PC), and to view downloaded files during the meeting.

    When logged in and with the Workspace mode enabled, Synappx Meeting displays a scheduled meeting list with an organizer and reserved time.

  3. Microsoft Teams Configurations (Required for Microsoft 365)

    The resource account is required to log in to install the Microsoft Teams application on the in-room PC. Once logged in, it shows a list of meetings that are scheduled to occur in the room. It is strongly recommended to further configure Microsoft Teams settings to establish a controlled environment such as access to calendar and chat history.

  4. In-Room Compute Microsoft Windows Login

    When the in-room PC is kept logged on so that each user is not required to log in, it is recommended to place necessary measures to maintain security and integrity.

    Recommendations include:

    • A custom Synappx Shell for Windows to provide more control over PC access. When implemented, it helps prevent regular users from exploring registries and installing unwanted applications. Learn how to configure a custom Synappx Shell for Windows. For more information, see User Guides.
