Reports are about showing the value of the service to the customer. As IT business owners we need to automate as much as possible. I would like to see automated monthly reports that contain all the other reporting mechanisms like workstations, patch management, remote support, automated task report, device hardware/software inventory, bandwidth/performance etc. This way the customer can see everything the service does ...more »

When systems go offline gracefully, they show as Offline. When system go offline due to hibernation or system sleep, a check error for the TCP/IP Helper Service is thrown. Why not add an additional state, hibernated, and offer an option to wake the system via the context menu for the workstation?
We have some customers that have several pcs but no Servers at a site. Some pcs cannot browse internet (but can do HTTPS) so the GFI Max agent works fine. However, Managed Antivirus cannot update without a Site Concentrator. Please allow workstations to be used as a site concentrator for managed antivirus.

Often it happens that a workstations crashes. After re-installing OS and Remote Management Agent, the pc is still not monitored.
The procedure for know is to delete the workstation name in the dashboard and after that re-install the agent.

Backup monitoring/alert for Workstations - I have many small business customers using a computer with a Desktop operating systems on it as a file server as well as many that have multiple PCs but no server so more than one PC needs data backed up.
