Phone Key Macros can be deployed in GUI mode or from the command line. The command line mode can be started from Windows Task Scheduler and enables you to automatically deploy Key Macros based on a schedule. A small script can be created to, for example:
Command line format
|PhoneControlTool.exe /bulkmacro <bulkmacro.csv>|
There are 2 steps to use the command line:
Step 1: Preparation: Create Bulk Key Macro
Create a Bulk Key Macro in GUI mode and save it in Step 4. Then reference this CSV file in the command.
Example: In Step 4, save it to C:\mytemp\bulkmacro.csv
Step 2: Execute: Execute from command line or within script
Example: PhoneControlTool.exe /bulkmacro "C:\mytemp\bulkmacro.csv"
All logs of executed commands are printed to the console and are also written to C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\Uplinx Phone Control Tool\Log\CLI.logs
