Using configuration extensions to automatic preferred defaults
2023-09-21, 15:30–16:00 (Europe/Bucharest), Room 1

Setting good program defaults is key to a smooth migration to LibreOffice. LibreOffice allows you to customize them for your particular situation via easy-to-deploy configuration extensions.

A common sysadmin task is to provide good defaults. LibreOffice settings
can be managed with a shared extension installed by the sysadmin that overrides
builtin defaults, allowing either IT-locked values, or setting corporate defaults that still allow the user to override with their own perferences.

Justin began fixing interoperability LibreOffice bugs in 2014 as his small office prepared to migrate from end-of-life Office 2003 to LibreOffice. A standardized deployment configured by extensions was a key contributor to the successful rollout.

Justin now works half time for Collabora Productivity.
