Interact with rename button

Hello, I am a small developer of android and desktop applications, I would like to know if there is a way in which I can interact through a keyboard shortcut or something similar with the “rename” option. I am making a basic keyboard for people with difficulties in tech and I need to switch between usernames only with a key combination, such as when hand is raised: alt + y. Example: there are two people sharing a PC, and by raising your hand to be able to alternate the name between user 1 and user 2, I hope you can give me more light in this regard.

Hey @poyocadena,

Thanks for using the dev forum!

If you are willing to create an SDK application, you could write a program to listen for keyboard events and then call the rename method available in the SDK.

Thanks!

But would this only work for an application of mine or could my keyboard be integrated into any zoom app?

Hey @poyocadena,

Through the SDK, it would only work in your app. If you would like to build an add-on to the standard Zoom client, you can look into creating a Zoom-app: Zoom Apps | Zoom

Thanks!

Thank you very much for your kind answers, finally, in theory … if you could make a zoom-app that controls the keyboard shortcuts and customize your own, adding a shortcut: change name?

Hey @poyocadena,

I believe this should be possible, however I am not a Zoom Apps expert. I would reach out here to confirm: Zoom Apps | Zoom

Thanks!
