Easier to identify and fix as to which causes the schedule task had failed.
It would be helpful to be able to have an alert/notification created when an AMP is scheduled. For example, if you schedule a reboot of a server for overnight.
it would be nice to have a Schedule Task to run at logon
i.e. a popup message at logon instructing that patches installed last night.
i would like to see under scheduled tasks, being able to filter by date created.
Scheduled task profiles don't follow execution time outs.
Tasks that execute against offline devices get stuck in Pending until successfully executed
I think it would be of benefit if a device's maintenance windows were available as scripting triggers.
So if there's tasks we wish to perform in sync with a device's existing windows, we can just set it to 'run 60 minutes before reboot' rather than make multiple different scheduled task profiles.
We have Scheduled tasks setup under certain rules for clients, ie, install Anitvirus, DNS filtering, system maintenance, etc, that we send over to the proper board in the PSA for proactive time keeping purposes. We would like to auto close successfully run tickets with a time attached to them for reports so it doesn't effect our SLA.
We need to be able to monitor the disposition of Windows Scheduled Tasks. This means being able to check the event logs. While we have event log checking, it is not comprehensive. e.g.: I cannot check the Applications and Services>Microsoft>Windows>TaskScheduler>Operational> event log to see that my backup got terminated due to a switch to battery power during the backup. It is necessary to either selectively add this ...more »
It would be nice to be able to use booleans in an automation policy with the added effect of allowing certain input parameters to only show when certain boxes are checked. This would allow for more complex and user friendly Automation Policies without the need to give the user to many options when they are running specific Automation Policies. To give a small example, I have a disk cleanup script that has multiple sections ...more »
I can't tell you how many times I've needed to somehow report on the results of an automated task. Currently the only way to do it is to run the task, go to Scheduled Tasks > Add/Delete > Status, and then manually copy and paste everything under that tab into excel. Besides being a pain in itself, there's 2 huge limitations: 1. The output only lists a few lines of information. If there's more output than allowed, you ...more »
I'd love to see realtime results on a scheduled task results page. Several other similar pages automatically refresh, but this one does not. Currently I have to enable email notifications if I want updates, but that's not a good idea when running a task on hundreds of nodes (I've made that mistake before).
Allow us to chose if we want a task or maintenance window to run according to the timezone of the end point being run against, or if it should run from the n-central server time.
