    • Allow highlight and copy of computer name

      If I open the account information for a user I am able to highlight and copy the username if I want but unable to do that when it comes to a computer name.
      We have to copy the computer name to paste in other systems to do searches and other actions but we cannot do that unless we edit the object. All that needs to be done is to allow the highlighting of the computer name in the system information.

          • Let end user request support via system tray app

            The end user could click the system tray agent to request support. This would bring up a pop-up that upon filling out would email to a support@ email address.

                • Ability to retrieve and work with more Active Directory Attributes

                  Goverlan provides very limited AD attributes to work with. For example if I want to send an email to a user's manager, GoverLAN does not provide manager's name. GoverLAN should be able to return all AD attributes in a usable form or allow a way to work with attributes if they are to be returned as DN format. This will allow us to use GoverLAN for automating Active Directory tasks as Softerra Adexes.

                    I can see at least twice as many Actions in v7 as I can in v8.x without scrolling.

                    • Full Data Query Action

                      Since Goverlan Agent is lightweight, it does not collect system information upon agent install. The only way to collect information about say new computer setups and store that data in the database is to run a scope action against it before deployment with the properties you wish to store.

                      The downside is that I don't know what properties I might need to query in the future so I would like to see an option in Admin & Diag menu as well as in Scope Action to run a full query and collect all of the information possible instead of having…

                      • Scope Action jobs execute automatically when a workstation comes online

                        Every Goverlan user has run into this. You create a Scope Action and run it on your scope of computers and half of them are powered off or not available. So you're stuck in a constant battle to find these computers, plug them in, and re-run the job manually. Wouldn't it be much more functional if those computers simply "checked in" to a GCS or something and said, "Hey, is there some job or pending task that needs to run on me?" And if that computer was part of a previous Scope Action, then it would automatically run!

                        This is…

                                There are many times where I find myself wanting to run a scope action on a specific sub-set of computers. For example, since you cannot push a software package to multiple computers in Admin & Diag you have to make a Scope Action to do so. However, setting scope are not always easy to do or filter by.

                                It would be nice if when you select multiple objects in Admin & Diag, on the right click action that there was a "Save to Scope Template" action allowing you to specify the scope for a scope action that you would otherwise…

                                  I'm starting to amass a large amount of Scope actions and its getting pretty daunting to look at a find which ones I want. Granted, I can filter by columns including scope and type but that doesn't quite do it for me. I wish I could either change the view so that the rows are thinner except for the scope action that has been selected. That, or have different views like in Windows Explorer where you can go from Icon view (large and small) to detailed, etc. Grouping by column is nice but the headers are just so large that…

                                  • Show Idle Computer and/or Allow Remote Control Preview

                                    There are many times in which I need to remote control a computer but a user is signed into it. I cannot tell if the user just didn't sign out or actively using the computer so have to take the risk of remote controlling the computer and hope they aren't mid-use. It would be such a huge benefit to be able to tell if a computer is an idle state or not. Another way around this would be to show a preview of the computer so that you can see if they are working without interrupting them.

                                    • "Overwrite" recording of Console Output

                                      I would very much like an check box or option in the "Output" section of the script package properties to allow me to "overwrite" the referenced file to be used when recording the console output.

                                      When using a Script Package to record info and save the console output to a text file is a great feature. However, when using this option to record the output, it will "append" the output to the text file if that file already exists. Normally this is fine if you are executing a batch script on multiple computers and want to capture all the info…

                                      • Automatic WOL & Wait when deploying software.

                                        It would be great if when trying to deploy software by default Goverlan would check to see if the machine is online. If not it would send a WOL request, if that request fails it still waits to see the client come online and then run the job. This would eliminate the need to constantly be rescheduling jobs that have failed. Also it would make scheduling overnight installs much easier as many users power down their machines at night.

                                        Thanks for all your work I really like the product so far!!!

                                        There's just a few things that I wish it…

                                        • Drag\Drop jobs from scope action

                                          Running jobs from Global Management on sets of systems, or individual computers can be a tedious process, as you have to go to properties, and set the scope to the computer you want, before running a job. The ability to drag a job to a computer, or OU in AD to set the scope, and start the job would streamline things, and be hugely helpful.
