  1. Server Monitoring system

    It would be nice if Goverlan could include A Dashboard that shows you the health of your servers. If servers is stressed (Drive space low, Memory low...) it will show it in Red. also can email you when server is low on health. This could do the same with PCs.

    • .MSU and .MSP software installation packages

      It's easy to setup a .MSI or .EXE software installation packages in your Scope Action and would like the same ability to create a softwaer installation package for .MSU and .MSP files.

      • Add logic to scope actions for better processing

        Add if/then to action modules for robust action processing. For example, If action A result = X then go to action B, else Action C. Also add a pause between scope module execution.

          • Run .EXE install package "from source" location

            It's very helpful when creating software install packages to be able to check the box to "install from source". Don't know if it's technically possible, but would like the same ability for .EXE software install packages.

            • Right click on single/multiple devices and quickly copy files over

              It would be nice to quickly select a single or multiple computers in the management view and copy files over to those particular machines without having to create a scope action.

              • Would like to see drop-downs in v8 reports similar to v7 Report Table view

                We use the drop-downs to drill down into report data all the time....initial reason we fell in love with GoverLan years ago. Much more convenient than making pivot tables in Excel.

                • 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.

                  • Remove Forced Reporting Fields

                    Running a report on Computer information includes fields you do not select (or usually want to see) such as "Computer Owner", "Owner Source", "Queried On"...
                    Please don't force columns in reports. Like all the other selectable fields, just make it another one we can add if we want. Manually removing them after they've already been created is not a good option.

                    • Add Last-Logon Timestamp Multi-DC property for Computer Objects

                      Currently the Last-Logon Timestamp property for computer objects only reads from one domain controller. Having a multi-dc option for this property would give the most accurate way of detecting stale computer accounts from Active Directory. We use this same multi-dc property for stale user accounts, why not just do the same for computer objects. It would be much more accurate than using the pwdlastset attribute.

                      • 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…

                        • Organization of Scope Actions

                          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…

                          • Allow the scope actions script to take a flat text file as an argument entry

                            Allow the scope actions script to take a flat text file as an argument entry. For example the scope actions script will take a list of machines from a file to then discover all the users logged-in to these machines. But it will be also great that the flat text file can contain several argument separated by a comma. For example a scope actions script could be executed by taking a file like this one :
                            machine1,username1
                            machine2,username2
                            etc...
                            to execute some actions for all these machines associated to their relevant username specified.
                            Thanks.

                            • Scope actions password protection

                              I think it would be really good to have the option to enable password protection on scope actions to prevent certain scope actions from being used maliciously. Just an added layer of protection.

                              • Offer the same account management features that you have for users accounts with machine accounts.

                                Offer the same account management features that you have for users accounts with machine accounts. For instance I need to add a group to the machine accounts on a large batch of machines. If these were users accounts I would be able to just use a scope action and be don. But with machine accounts there is no option for ad management.

                                  • Per-Scope Action Deployment Speed (not global)

                                    Currently changing the speed a scope action runs at is a global change.

                                    Some Scope Actions can be run really fast such as registry key changes, however software package deployments may need to run slower to avoid killing links to remote sites.

                                    The ability to set the speed to each individual Scope would be very beneficial.

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

                                      • Reporting that could return "Yes/No"

                                        Often times we're asked to find which computers do, and do not, have a certain piece of software. You can kind of do this using a condition, but and have it return computer names to do have it, but this doesn't help obtain a list of computers that do not have it.

                                        Would like a function to run a Scope/Action to report back "Yes" or "No" for something like this where it would have the full list of computers names and then simply a "Yes" or "No" for the "Does this item exist".

                                        • 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…
