In SSCs configuration you can configure the server to connect to and set up some basic parameters. The audio configuration for the recordings can also be changed here.
When you set up SSC for a specific institution you might want to bind it directly to this institution. The user can then use the institution specific ids of the users (instead of the internal SSC ids) when referencing the users. To set up the bound institution, use the Use institution specific ids instead of SSC ids checkbox. For more information see the section about institution associations.
The sound configuration is shared with the whole of the Simon application suite. Read more about it in Simon manual.
