File Transfer Location
Is there a way to change where Veyon sends file transfers? It currently sends them to the root of the user folders (C:\Users\current_user) and I'd rather them go somewhere more user-friendly. On top of that, the software I use to distribute the received files from where they're dropped can't be set to monitor that folder for unrelated reasons (it ends up making duplicates of files in subdirectories).
tl;dr I'd like to change where Veyon sends files. Can't figure out how.
We redirect our Windows shell folders to network locations; H:\Documents, H:\Pictures, H:\Desktop where H: is mapped to a user share, \servername\usersharename.
Shell folder Documents > H:\Documents = \servername\usersharename\Documents
Shell folder Downloads > H:\Downloads = \servername\usersharename\Downloads
Shell folder Desktop > H:\Desktop = \servername\usersharename\Desktop
Shell folder Pictures > H:\Pictures = \servername\usersharename\Pictures
File transfers are sent to H:, the root of the user folder.
To direct to a specific location we use the ‘Run program’ feature with the XCOPY command.
xcopy M:\Faculty\teachername\Quizzes\quiz4.doc H:\Desktop
Everyone logged in receives quiz4.doc on their desktop.
There should be two backslash characters before servername. Nodebb forum post formatting removed one of the backslash characters.

Starting with Veyon 4.5.0 the file transfer folders are configurable through the advanced view in Veyon Configurator.
