Hello,

 

i am just working on my floating profile folders problem.

 

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/enterprise/still-not-possible-to-prevent-new-profiles-complet...

 

One possible solution for my problem would be to take use of "UserDataDir" (Set the user data directory)

 

But it would make it impossible to have different profiles for different channels. I am missing a variable in https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/DeployEdge/edge-learnmore-create-user-directory-vars for the channel. 

 

I would appreciate it if a future version would have a variable like this: 

 

All platforms

${edge_channel}The channel of Used Edge. Exampe: "Edge" for Stable, "Edge Beta", for Beta channel and so on

Good idea. Separating beta and dev profiles from stable - if not the default folders are used.
