Patch fail reason / remediation recommendations

Patch installation seems to fail frequently without any indication of why if fails or how to resolve the problem. Since "something" happens for the agent to know that the patch didn't install, couldn't that "something" be conveyed into the status info perhaps even with some useful information about what to do about the problem.

Multiple Logins for Cloud Account

Similar to the multiple accounts with one login, I see a need to have ability for multiple logins for ONE account. I am one company, with TWO IT personnel. They have to use the same login.

Would it really be that challenging to add another ...more »

Reports are needed on a per user basis that would show, at a minimum, (a) all activity and (b) sites that were blocked. Time spent on a site as well as overall time browsing would be useful as well.

 

Not sure how you can release something without the ability to generate reports.

Modify (increase) Auto-Reboot delay

Auto reboot is enabled in the policy. If the user is absent for 30 minutes and the scheduled install with reboot is during this time, the 2 minutes reboot warning is too short. It is a forced reboot. Applications with unsaved documents are forced to quit and the work is lost. Please make this timer configurable. Please provide the option to choose between forced reboot and normal reboot (interuptable by applications) ...more »

Extraction of Software Product Keys in Asset Tracking

We presently use another product for Asset Mgt. that supplies software product keys. If a machine has to have a full re-install (hard drive failure), we use those software product keys to accomplish this without having to go to a lot of trouble. From the standpoint of License Mgt., we are able to export the software keys into Excel so that we can check ourselves on license compliance as well as to make decision on which ...more »
