Differentiate between Teams windows

Is there a way to differentiate between the Teams main window and the window for a Teams meeting besides the window title? I'm trying to set up a Trigger that fires when a Teams meeting window is created but I don't see anyway to differentiate between the windows except for the title. I have no way of knowing what the title will be at any given moment and the other Match Conditions are the same.

Hello,

When you go to select the application for your trigger, can you try dragging the blue crosshair overtop of the window you would like moved?

Let me know how that works!

I've done that and it is the same application for starting Teams. I've check everything available and none of them return anything unique.

Hello,

Interesting, it might be possible with the following setup:

1) Create a trigger that specifies the Window Text of the Main teams window, with "Stop Processing" enabled.

2) Create another trigger that only has the process name specified.

In theory, when opening teams, it should read the main window, hit the first trigger and stop. But when opening the meeting window, it should have different text then the first, and hit the 2nd trigger to do whatever you would like it to.

Give that a shot and let me know how it goes!

Thanks for the suggestion, Owen. I may try that in the future. For now, things are working OK in spite of how I thought they would work. By that I mean, I had to completely shutdown Teams yesterday and when I started it back up, the main window opened where it is supposed to open. Later on when I had to join a Teams meeting, the meeting window resized and repositioned itself where I wanted it to. So, things are working OK right now.

About the "Stop Processing" option; does this mean stop processing all other rules or triggers? I have a number of them and of course I want them to run. Can you explain in more detail how the option works?

Thanks...David

Hi David,

The "Stop Processing" will stop it from checking any more triggers that are lower in the list for that event type.

E.g. if you have 5 triggers that use the "Window Created" event, and the 2nd one has the "stop processing" checkbox enabled, it won't process rules 3-5 in the list IF the window that triggered the event matches the 2nd rule.

Hope that helps!
