Maintenance windows as schedule variables / scripting triggers

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.

Auto close tickets sent to PSA via Sheduled Tasks

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.

Windows Task Scheduler event log monitoring

We need to be able to monitor the disposition of Windows Scheduled Tasks. This means being able to check the event logs.

To give a small example, I have a disk cleanup script that has multiple sections ...more »

Export the results of scheduled tasks

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 »

Automatic refresh for scheduled task results

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).
