Quicklaunch UE now has the ability to start a program or launch a batch file when certain events occur within Quicklaunch. This new functionality can be leveraged by executing batch files or programs on specific Quicklaunch events. For example, on the Meeting Start event a program can be executed that can power on monitors when the user clicks Join Now on a calendar item or alternately can start a program after the Room Reset is triggered.

A descriptor that identifies the Event Handler in the list
Event Type
The Quicklaunch Event that will trigger this Handler
Program Path
Path to a program that will be launched when the Event occurs
Startup Folder
If necessary, where the selected program should be executed from
